Syslog privilege separated

28 July 2003   |   Anil Madhavapeddy   |   tags:   |   all posts

Spent a few hours this weekend implementing privilege separation for syslogd in OpenBSD; I was curious to see how hard it would be to reason about the flow of execution of a fairly simple C daemon. I’m thoroughly sick of C now; my next task is to write an SSH2 server in Objective Caml to see how much better (or worse) it is than the equivalent C code in OpenSSH.
