BeOS & Derivatives "Starting with hrev45522, address space layout randomization (ASLR) and data execution prevention (DEP) are available in Haiku. These two features, which have actually become a standard in any modern OS, make it much harder to exploit any vulnerability that may be present in an application running on Haiku, thus generally improving system security."

So, I have a single-address map for all tasks. When code is loaded, basically, it calls malloc() and puts the code there. Code gets put in random locations.
I have been doing this for years and Microsoft patented it and called it ASLR.
