MUSCLE (Multi User Server Client Linking Environment) is an N-way messaging server and networking API. It includes client-side networking APIs for various languages, including C, C++, C#, Delphi, Java, and Python. MUSCLE lets programs communicate over a network via streams of serialized Message objects. The included server program ("muscled") lets its clients message each other and store information in its server-side hierarchical database. The database supports flexible queries via hierarchical wildcarding, and "live" updates via a subscription mechanism.
Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. It provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy. Individuals can use it to keep remote Websites from tracking them and their family members. They can also use it to connect to resources such as news sites or instant messaging services that are blocked by their local Internet service providers (ISPs).
Nuttx is a real-time embedded operating system (RTOS). It has a small footprint that is usable in micro-controller environments. It is fully scalable from tiny (8-bit) to moderate embedded (32-bit) systems. It also aims to be fully compliant to standards, to be fully real time, and to be totally open.
libmemcached is a C client library for interfacing to a memcached server. It has been designed to be light on memory usage, thread safe and to provide full access to server side methods. It also implements several command line tools: memcat, memflush, memrm, memstat, and memslap (for load generation). The library has been designed to allow for different hashing methods on keys, partitioning by keys, and to use consistent hashing for distribution.
lighttpd is a secure, fast, compliant, and very flexible Web server which has been optimized for high-performance environments. It has a very low memory footprint compared to other Web servers, and it takes care of CPU load. It has an advanced feature set that includes FastCGI (load balanced), CGI, Auth, Output-Compression, URL-Rewriting, SSL, and much more.
YpFw is a frontend to ipfw and dummynet. It was developed to ease the setting and managing of ipfw rules and dummynet pipes on FreeBSD. It features a curses text interface, which allows the user to add/delete rules, update/clear rules counters, and add/delete/configure pipes. It is not meant as a replacement to ipfw; the user will need to understand ipfw and dummynet rules and syntax.
Open MPI is a project that originated as the merging of technologies and resources from several other projects (FT- MPI, LA-MPI, LAM/MPI, and PACX-MPI) in order to build the best MPI library available. A completely new MPI-2 compliant implementation, Open MPI offers advantages for system and software vendors, application developers, and computer science researchers. It is easy to use, and runs natively on a wide variety of operating systems, network interconnects, and batch/scheduling systems.
Amber sits in the tcpserver chain for qmail and implements an "amber list" for incoming mail. This neither accepts nor rejects connections, but implements a number of timing-related tricks to fake out spam and virus software that doesn't implement SMTP correctly. For example, it can defer requests from new IP addresses for a few minutes before it starts passing connections on to smtpd, pause and check for programs that send data before the HELO, and otherwise make things rough for bandit bulk mailers.
