[$] Lua in the kernel?
[Kernel] Posted Sep 9, 2020 16:17 UTC (Wed) by jake
BPF is, of course, the language used for network (and other)
customization in the Linux kernel, but some people have been
using the Lua language for the networking side of that
equation. Two developers from Ring-0 Networks, Lourival
Vieira Neto and Victor Nogueira, came to the virtual Netdev
0x14 to present that work. It consists of a framework to
allow the injection of Lua scripts into the running kernel
as well as two projects aimed at routers, one of which is
deployed on 20 million devices.
