    Summary: Tool to check system for binary-hardening
    Description: 
    Modern Linux distributions offer some mitigation techniques to make it harder
    to exploit software vulnerabilities reliably. Mitigations such as RELRO,
    NoExecute (NX), Stack Canaries, Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) and
    Position Independent Executables (PIE) have made reliably exploiting any
    vulnerabilities that do exist far more challenging. The checksec script is
    designed to test what *standard* Linux OS and PaX (http://pax.grsecurity.net/)
    security features are being used.
    
    The script also lists the status of various Linux kernel protection mechanisms.
    
    checksec can check binary-files and running processes for hardening features.
