When working on Tor in 2001, C was a reasonable choice, but it has always been limited by it, and the development of the C language has been slower than Tor officially hoped. What’s more, the existing C implementation has evolved over the years to a less modular design. Almost everything is connected to other things, which makes it harder to analyze the code and make security improvements.
Therefore, since 2020, Tor officials have begun to try to implement a new implementation of Tor in the Rust programming language. And now, with the latest release, Arti has reached the 1.0.0 milestone.
