NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for ssp (netbsd section 3)

SSP(3)				   BSD Library Functions Manual 			   SSP(3)

NAME
     ssp -- bounds checked libc functions

LIBRARY
     library ``libssp''

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ssp/stdio.h>

     int
     sprintf(char *str, const char *fmt, ...);

     int
     vsprintf(char *str, const char *fmt, va_list ap);

     int
     snprintf(char *str, size_t len, const char *fmt, ...);

     int
     vsnprintf(char *str, size_t len, const char *fmt, va_list ap);

     char *
     gets(char *str);

     char *
     fgets(char *str, int len, FILE *fp);

     #include <ssp/string.h>

     void *
     memcpy(void *str, const void *ptr, size_t len);

     void *
     memmove(void *str, const void *ptr, size_t len);

     void *
     memset(void *str, int val, size_t len);

     char *
     strcpy(char *str, const char *ptr, size_t len);

     char *
     strcat(char *str, const char *ptr, size_t len);

     char *
     strncpy(char *str, const char *ptr, size_t len);

     char *
     strncat(char *str, const char *ptr, size_t len);

     #include <ssp/strings.h>

     void *
     bcopy(const void *ptr, void *str, size_t len);

     void *
     bzero(void *str, size_t len);

     #include <ssp/unistd.h>

     ssize_t
     read(int fd, void *str, size_t len);

     int
     readlink(const char * restrict path, char * restrict str, size_t len);

     int
     getcwd(char *str, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
     When _FORTIFY_SOURCE bounds checking is enabled as described below, the above functions get
     overwritten to use the __builtin_object_size(3) function to compute the size of str, if
     known at compile time, and perform bounds check on it in order to avoid data buffer or stack
     buffer overflows.	If an overflow is detected, the routines will call abort(3).

     To enable these function overrides the following should be added to the gcc(1) command line:
     ``-I/usr/include/ssp'' to override the standard include files and ``-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=1'' or
     ``-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2''.

     If _FORTIFY_SOURCE is set to 1 the code will compute the maximum possible buffer size for
     str, and if set to 2 it will compute the minimum buffer size.

SEE ALSO
     gcc(1), __builtin_object_size(3), stdio(3), string(3), security(7)

HISTORY
     The ssp library appeared NetBSD 4.0.
