    Empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.

    Even without #[forbid(unsafe_code)], the Rust compiler and LLVM aren't meant to be hardened security boundaries and they aren't. (Sorry. I don't know how to look up and link to the equivalent tag on LLVM's bug tracker.)

  • wasmer

    🚀 The leading Wasm Runtime supporting WASIX, WASI and Emscripten

    In short, if you want a security boundary, use a sandbox designed for it, such as embedding a WebAssembly runtime like Wasmer to run your sensitive code or running your binary in a sandbox like Firejail or those provided by systemd, Flatpak, etc.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
