"Bugs that corrupts the memory are extremely annoying. The corruption is
often silent as it happens, and only become apparent later when the
corrupted address is being accessed, possibly by a totally unrelated
code, and all useful information about the context in which the
corruption occurred has been lost.

KASan (Kernel Address Sanitizer) is a tool that allow to catch the
faulty accesses that cause memory corruption as they happen, and thus
greatly facilitate the debugging of such issue

In this talk, I'll explain what are the common causes of memory
corruption, how KASan works, how to use it and, I hope, inspire kernel
developer to use it more."
