I don't know how many of you follow the security bulletins in the Unix-world, but there has recently been a lot of trouble with the more widely used FTP daemons (one of them is WU-FTPD). Seeing a FTP daemon in operation from the client-side, it doesn't seem like a very complicated piece of software, and my WU-FTPD binary takes up "only" 159 kb on the disk. On the other hand have I seen "cascades" of reports of security vulnerabilities for this program. Many more than I would expect to be possible from my view of the simplicity of a FTP daemon. My point: FTP daemons are high-visibility programs, which I imagine shouldn't be that hard to implement. [ assuming I am not mistaken about the level of difficulties implementing a FTP daemon: ] So why don't we write a Team Ada FTP daemon, so we can show that all our fine words about Ada's suitability for high-reliability software are more than just words? I must admit that I don't know much about network programming, so I can't do much alone, but if somebody can point me to some useful litterature and answer the questions that pop up, then I am willing to start on the project.
