Date: Mon, 9 May 2016 11:15:03 -0300 From: Daniel Simon <ddanielsimonn@...il.com> To: tor-dev@...ts.torproject.org, musl@...ts.openwall.com Subject: [Proposal] A simple way to make Tor-Browser-Bundle more portable and secure Hello. How it's currently done - The Tor Browser Bundle is dynamically linked against glibc. Security problem - The Tor Browser Bundle has the risk of information about the host system's library ecosystem leaking out onto the network. Portability problem - The Tor Browser Bundle can't be run on systems that don't use glibc, making it unusable due to different syscalls. Solution proposed - Static link the Tor Browser Bundle with musl libc. It is a simple and fast libc implementation that was especially crafted for static linking. This would solve both security and portability issues. What is Tor developers' opinion about this? I personally don't see any drawbacks and would be interested in discussing this further. Sincerely, Daniel  https://www.musl-libc.org/
