ssh-forcecommand is a script to safely execute remote commands via ssh. It is especially aimed at automated remote commands (in which ssh keys are not secured via password), where a compromise of the remote system could also compromise the local system. To prevent this, ssh-forcecommand can be invoked through the ssh configuration, which will limit the remote system so that it can only execute a set of statically defined commands. This way, compromising the local system is made much more difficult.
RemoteBox is a graphical tool which lets you administer guests or virtual machines running under VirtualBox on a remote server or even your local machine if desired. You may, for example, have a root server on the Internet, a server at home, or a server at work running VirtualBox but want to have the convenience of managing the guests easily from your local machine. The virtual machines run in headless mode, which means you don't need an active graphical display on the server but you can still connect and view the displays of the guests. The goal of RemoteBox is to provide a GUI that should be familiar to VirtualBox users while allowing them to administer a remote installation of VirtualBox. It does this via the VirtualBox API and SOAP interface, which are exposed when running the VirtualBox Web service. You can also use RemoteBox simply as an alternative interface for managing VirtualBox on your local machine.
PRADS is a "Passive Real-time Asset Detection System". It passively listens to network traffic and gathers information on hosts and services it sees. This information can be used to map your network, letting you know what services and hosts are alive and used. It can also be used together with your favorite IDS/IPS setup for "event to host/service" correlation. It can help you make sure that your inventory database is up to date. PRADS commes in two versions. One written in Perl, and one written in C. Some features might only be found in one of the versions.
spread provides SSH based Unix mass administration. It distributes commands or files from one central administration server onto classes of hosts. If one host is currently not reachable, the command or file will get spooled. As soon as the host is up again, spread delivers it automatically.
sfre (system flight recorder editor) is a script that wraps a text editor or any arbitrary command and implements logging, file locking, and change tracking for the command executed. It is meant for helping system administrators manage a system in tandem without interfering with each other.
phpAdamoto is a mass administration and software deployment tool with a Web console. phpAdamoto lets you start script code on a chosen subset of your network systems with just some mouse clicks on a Web console. phpAdamoto is the successor of the well known application adamoto. phpAdamoto is very easy to install and just needs a LAMP or WAMP environment on the server and Perl on the clients.
