sudo and su are rewritten in Rust

With financial support from Amazon Web Services, sudo and su are rewritten in the Rust programming language to increase memory security to further enhance Linux/open-source security.

sudo su

"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.
