Summary0008337: gochecksec - A Go program that checks the security flags for Linux binaries

This is a new tool of mine that has been out for a little bit now and would like it to be included in kali.

To read more on it can be viewed on my website

I generate deb files automatically on new git tags, the packaging is done using goreleaser github actions

Here is the link to the arm64 deb

Here is the link to the 64 bit binary

Hi @g0ti1k, I have checked that when I reached out on Mastodon, as far as I understood it as the .deb package is all automated on git tag, thought it would jut be the case of import the deb into the kali repos and sign it with the kali apt key, this not the case?

Hello @L1ghtn1ng
Sorry, im not the best these days with social networks!

We compile from source, rather than using other peoples binaries, which is why we can't just sign the package.

Looking at:
This doesn't follow Debian's packaging standard
