Common misconceptions about the Rust programming language

From systems programming to web development, IoT to game development, the Rust language is rapidly gaining widespread adoption across industries. Engineered for performance, reliability, and safety, Rust is considered by many as the language of choice for projects requiring uncompromising performance and reliability.

However, its reputation as a secure coding language doesn’t mean that Rust is immune to bugs and vulnerabilities that can affect your software supply chain security. As its popularity grows and it’s used in more instances that would give threat actors access to valuable, sensitive information, we’re likely to see an increase in the number of attempts to compromise the code.

To keep Rust applications secure, routine testing at every stage of the development lifecycle is vital. MergeBase can help with this.
