Both GCC and LLVM toolchains provide a wide range of security-related flags. Some are dedicated to finding bugs statically, some provide low-cost runtime protection and other rely on heavy instrumentations. Although many flags are shared between the two toolchains, some are unique, and there implementation may differ. This talk aims at providing a broad overview and status on these security-related aspects.
