Με την οικονομική υποστήριξη της Amazon Web Services, το sudo και το su ξαναγράφονται στη γλώσσα προγραμματισμού Rust για να αυξηθεί η ασφάλεια της μνήμης για την περαιτέρω ενίσχυση της ασφάλειας του Linux/open-source.
"Because it is written in C, sudo has faced many vulnerabilities related to memory safety issues," according to with a publication announcing the project:
“It's important to protect our most critical software, especially from memory security vulnerabilities. It is hard to imagine software that is more critical than sudo and su”.
This work is carried out by a joint team from Ferrous Systems and Tweede Golf with the generous support of Amazon Web Services. The work plan you can see here. The repository on GitHub is here.
