35     *paxctl-0.2 (18 Feb 2004)
36 solar 1.1
37     18 Feb 2004; <solar@gentoo.org> :
38     This is paxctl for controlling PaX flags on a per binary basis. PaX
39     is an intrusion prevention system that provides the best protection
40     mechanisms against memory corruption bugs. Some applications are not
41     compatible with certain features (due to design or bad engineering)
42     and therefore they have to be exempted from certain enforcements. It
43     is also possible to use PaX in soft mode where none of the protection
44     mechanisms are active by default - here paxctl can be used to turn
45     them on for selected programs (e.g., network daemons, programs that
46     process network data such as mail clients, web browsers, etc).
47    
48     PaX and paxctl work on ELF executables, both of the standard ET_EXEC
49     and the newer ET_DYN kind (older PaX releases referred to the latter
50     as ET_DYN executables, these days they are called Position Independent
51     Executables or PIEs for short).
