Welcome traveler
Happy Thanksgiving to anyone who celebrates it! Even if you don't celebrate it, I'd encourage you to take a minute to think about what you're thankful for. When I'm feeling sad or just down, I think about the things I'm grateful for, and always feel better afterwards. This year, among other things, I'm thankful for all of your support :) Here's the last issue of the week.

Writing code that's meant to execute concurrently can be difficult, especially since most languages haven't been built to support it as a central design point. Jason Brownlee's article focuses on the ThreadPoolExecutor functionality in Python, specifically looking at handling exceptions in thread initialization, task execution, and task completion callbacks.

You know what they say, the best defense is a strong offense! Well in the case of infosec, this is a relatively new approach. In this dangerous article, Sylvain Kerkour presents several methods for hiding and executing backdoor code in Rust crates.


Mononym: Type-Level Named Values in Rust - Part 1: Demo and Implementation

"Mononym provides the core type Named, which represents a named value of type T with a unique type N as its name". From my understanding, this allows one to create proofs in Rust that are type safe, enabling one to better implement functional programming methods. In this introductory article, Soares Chen demos how the Mononym library can be used, then goes on to discuss the technical details of its implementation.
