Default Google backs Linux project to make Android, Chrome OS harder to hack

From https://www.cnet.com/news/google-bac...arder-to-hack/

The search giant is working to allow Rust code in the Linux kernel, a major technological and cultural shift after decades using only C.
Google said Thursday it's funding a project to increase Linux security by writing parts of the operating system's core in the Rust programming language, a modernization effort that could bolster the security of the internet and smartphones.

If the project succeeds, it'll be possible to add new elements written in Rust into the heart of Linux, called the kernel.

Miguel Ojeda, who's written software used by the Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator and worked on programming language security, is being contracted to write software in Rust for the Linux kernel. Google is paying for the contract, which is being extended through the Internet Security Research Group, a nonprofit that's also made it easier to secure website communications through the Let's Encrypt effort.
