    Further we use cargo-auditable and cargo-audit as part of both our pipeline and regular scanning of all deployed services. This makes our InfoSec and Legal super happy since it means they can also monitor compliance with licenses and patch/update timings.

    This exists, see cargo auditable.

    The Rust community seems to have settled on a perfectly reasonable way to address bit-rot in statically linked binaries.

    Would you be open to integrating cargo auditable into this pipeline in some form? It seems like a great match.

    > and static compilation probably just hides the problem unless security scanners these days can identify statically compiled vulnerable versions of libraries

    Some scanners like trivy [1] can scan statically compiled binaries, provided they include dependency version information (I think go does this on its own, for rust there's [2], not sure about other languages).

    It also looks into your containers.

    The problem is what to do when it finds a vulnerability. In a fat app with dynamic linking you could exchange the offending library, check that this doesn't break anything for your use case, and be on your way. But with static linking you need to compile a new version, or get whoever can build it to compile a new version. Which seems to be a major drawback of discouraging fat apps.



  • 'cargo auditable' can now be used as a drop-in replacement for Cargo
    5 projects | /r/rust | 9 Dec 2022
    cargo auditable embeds the list of Cargo dependencies into your compiled binary, so you can check it for known vulnerabilities (e.g. OpenSSL CVEs) later.

    I have investigated a bunch of standardized formats - SPDX, CycloneDX, etc. All of them are unsuitable for a variety of reasons, chief of which are being way too verbose and including timestamps, which would break reproducible builds.
  • sccache now supports GHA as backend

    The fix for interoperability with cargo auditable has also shipped in the latest release of sccache. You can use the released sccache now instead of building it from git!
  • `cargo audit` can now scan compiled binaries
    6 projects | /r/rust | 2 Nov 2022
    I've been working to bring vulnerability scanning to Rust binaries by creating cargo auditable, which embeds the list of dependencies and their versions into the compiled binary. This lets you audit the binary you actually run, instead of the Cargo.lock file in some repo somewhere.

    cargo auditable solves this problem by embedding the list of dependencies and their versions into the binaries. But until it becomes part of Cargo and gets enabled by default, static linking will remain problematic.
