Title: Xorg or Wayland, that's the question
Post by: esjay on June 01, 2019, 11:09:41 am
To make it short: A lot talk is about Wayland as the upcoming standard for security. Despite of the benchmark performance (Xorg/Xserver is a strong competitor!) I am interested in technical details. I still think that Xorg is not a bad choice, considering all the possible security features like sandboxing, apparmor and so on. Thoughts?

I guess it has the possibility to be more secure, but we'll have to wait and see where it ends up .. I mean it's unlikely to fully take over from X11 for years yet (if ever).

At this point you're asking people to break out their crystal balls ;)

At least I tried to do my very best.  ;)
I don't know when it happened but I got the impression that Wayland is in theory a great concept while Xorg still is in practice a great concept. (Ups!)
Question: Is it impossible to put a security layer above Xorg to protect its levels?
