rattlesnakeos-stack - Build your own privacy and security focused Android OS in the cloud on a continuous basis with OTA updates

  •    Go

RattlesnakeOS is a privacy and security focused Android OS for Google Pixel phones. RattlesnakeOS was created initially as an alternative to CopperheadOS, a security hardened Android OS created by Daniel Micay, after it stopped being properly maintained back in June 2018. To be clear, this project is not attempting to add or recreate any of the security hardening features that were present in CopperheadOS. Instead, it is looking to fill a gap now that CopperheadOS is no longer available in its previous form, as there are no real alternatives that provide the same level of privacy and security.

jsprime - a javascript static security analysis tool

  •    Javascript

Today, more and more developers are switching to JavaScript as their first choice of language. The reason is simple JavaScript has now been started to be accepted as the mainstream programming for applications, be it on the web or on the mobile; be it on client-side, be it on the server side. JavaScript flexibility and its loose typing is friendly to developers to create rich applications at an unbelievable speed. Major advancements in the performance of JavaScript interpreters, in recent days, have almost eliminated the question of scalability and throughput from many organizations. So the point is JavaScript is now a really important and powerful language we have today and it's usage growing everyday. From client-side code in web applications it grew to server-side through Node.JS and it's now supported as proper language to write applications on major mobile operating system platforms like Windows 8 apps and the upcoming Firefox OS apps. But the problem is, many developers practice insecure coding which leads to many client side attacks, out of which DOM XSS is the most infamous. We tried to understand the root cause of this problem and figured out is that there are not enough practically usable tools that can solve real-world problems. Hence as our first attempt towards solving this problem, we want to talk about JSPrime: A JavaScript static analysis tool for the rest of us. It's a very light-weight and very easy to use point-and-click tool! The static analysis tool is based on the very popular Esprima ECMAScript parser by Aria Hidayat.

tock - A secure embedded operating system for Cortex-M based microcontrollers

  •    Rust

Tock is an embedded operating system designed for running multiple concurrent, mutually distrustful applications on Cortex-M based embedded platforms. Tock's design centers around protection, both from potentially malicious applications and from device drivers. Tock uses two mechanisms to protect different components of the operating system. First, the kernel and device drivers are written in Rust, a systems programming language that provides compile-time memory safety, type safety and strict aliasing. Tock uses Rust to protect the kernel (e.g. the scheduler and hardware abstraction layer) from platform specific device drivers as well as isolate device drivers from each other. Second, Tock uses memory protection units to isolate applications from each other and the kernel. Tock is documented in the doc folder. Read through the guides there to learn about the overview and design of Tock, its implementation, and much more.

quick-secure - Quickly secure UNIX/Linux systems

  •    Shell

Quick NIX Secure Script is used to harden and secure basic permissions and ownership on the fly. This script can be used during boot up, cron, bootstrapping, kickstart, jumpstart and during other system deployments. I recommend using CM tools like Puppet or Ansible, but this is still nice. Many times in (prod)uction world prior admins harden without automation or towards an industry baseline. This is to help get to a point of standardization and quickly set or reset basic system security.

redox - Redox: A Rust Operating System

  •    Shell

Redox is an operating system written in Rust, a language with focus on safety and high performance. Redox, following the microkernel design, aims to be secure, usable, and free. Redox is inspired by previous kernels and operating systems, such as SeL4, MINIX, Plan 9, and BSD. Redox is not just a kernel, it's a full-featured Operating System, providing packages (memory allocator, file system, display manager, core utilities, etc.) that together make up a functional and convenient operating system. You can loosely think of it as the GNU or BSD ecosystem, but in a memory safe language and with modern technology. See this list for overview of the ecosystem.
