Securing Drupal with WebAssembly: Post by Wasm Labs
A recent blog post published by Wasm Labs highlights the importance of keeping Drupal, a popular Content Management System, updated with the latest security patches to prevent vulnerabilities. It explores how deploying Drupal within a WebAssembly-based stack can enhance security by leveraging the capabilities-based security model offered by WebAssembly.
WebAssembly is a secure and efficient binary format that allows the safe execution of code. It follows a deny-by-default security approach, requiring explicit authorization for accessing external resources. Incorporating WebAssembly into the Drupal stack adds an extra layer of security, protecting against known and unknown vulnerabilities.
The article also introduces mod_wasm, an Apache server extension that enables the execution of WebAssembly. This extension allows for seamless integration of WebAssembly-powered components with Drupal and facilitates the deployment of Drupal within a WebAssembly environment.
By utilizing WebAssembly and mod_wasm, developers can enhance Drupal's security measures and enable integration with other WebAssembly-supported technologies. This approach ensures the integrity of the main application and the underlying system while securely running untrusted code.
