If you see SSP-related parameters being passed for the compiler during the
build process, then the protection should be in use.
foo("smashing the stack for fun and profit");
$ gcc -Wall -fstack-protector-all foo.c -o foo
$ egrep overflow /var/log/messages
$ Aug 28 06:32:38 marx foo: stack overflow detected; terminated
But I don't know if there is some generic way to test this. ATF?
