EMET: configure memory protection on Windows

Microsoft published a nice tool named EMET (Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit) whose purpose is to check and enforce the memory security policies such as ALSR and DEP.

It shows and allows to configure the global settings, but also, and this is the most interesting part, indicated for each process running if it supports those security measures. It is even able to enforce the protections for each application which would not support it natively (i.e. not set at compilation time).
