KeyBox provides a way to manage OpenSSH v2 public keys, and can start a Web-based SSH terminal to execute commands and scripts on multiple SSH sessions simultaneously. The authorized_keys file is generated and distributed based on relationships maintained in the application. This allows for centralized management to help prevent public key sprawl. Also, composite terminals or scripts can be created so that commands can be shared across SSH sessions.
MASTIFF is a static analysis framework which automates the process of extracting key characteristics from a number of different file formats. To ensure the framework remains flexible and extensible, a community-driven set of plugins is used to perform file analysis and data extraction. While originally designed to support malware, intrusion, and forensic analysis, the framework is well-suited to support a broader range of analytic needs. In a nutshell, MASTIFF allows analysts to focus on analysis rather than figuring out how to parse files.
Griffon is dekstop application development platform for the JVM. Inspired by Grails, it leverages the Groovy language and concepts like convention over configuration. The Swing toolkit is the default UI toolkit of choice however others may be used, principaly SWT and JavaFX. Developers may use a combination of the Groovy and Java as well as other JVM languages such as Scala, Clojure, Mirah, and Jython. It encourages the use of the MVC pattern and follows in the spirit of the Swing Application Framework (JSR 296) by defining a simple yet powerful application life cycle and event publishing mechanism.
Weed-FS is a simple and highly scalable distributed file system. There are two objectives: to store billions of files, and to serve the files fast! Instead of supporting full POSIX file system semantics, it implements only a key-file mapping. Instead of managing all file metadata in a central master, it manages file volumes in the central master and lets volume servers manage files and the metadata. This relieves concurrency pressure from the central master and spreads file metadata into volume servers' memories, allowing faster file access with just one disk read operation. It is modelled on Facebook's Haystack design paper. Only 40 bytes of disk storage are required for each file's metadata, and disk reads are O(1).
