Memory safety is hard to achieve. We, as humans, are bound to make mistakes in our code. While it may be straightforward to detect memory corruption bugs in few lines of code, it becomes quite challenging to find those bugs in a massive code. In such cases, 'Address Sanitizer' may prove to be useful and could help save time.

Address Sanitizer, also known as ASan, is a runtime memory debugger designed to find out-of-bounds accesses and use-after-scope bugs. The goal of this project is to introduce ASan on coreboot. This feature would help to ensure code quality and make the runtime code more robust.
