  Description     : A script that tests which standard security features are being used

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 which standard
security features are being used.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of checksec back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting checksec, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 586472 ITP: checksec -- script that tests which standard security features are being used
 owner 586472 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <586472@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
