Code Style Guidelines
This repo lists code style guidelines and programming recommendations for software written at the Secure Systems Lab of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering.
The primary purpose of our software is to provide reference implementations for the specifications we design. As such readability is a key requirement.
We believe that an emphasis on readability has a strong positive impact on the security, correctness, and robustness of the code, and thus on the overall quality of our software. This is particularly important for those of our projects that are used in production.
Last but not least, readable code allows contributors of all different backgrounds and skill levels to engage in our projects. This, in turn, helps to create a lively and diverse open source community.
