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."

I'm a huge fan of Haiku, and I think your comment here is extremely important.

Do you think this is something that existed in BeOS, despite not being able to look at the source code?

Thank you! ;)


I have obviously never seen the BeOS code, but from what I hear from the Be folks, they had serious security audits.

The reason why security became very important is of course the fact that they bet the company on BeOS in Internet connected appliances.
