The CryptoNAS project wants to bring data encryption to the masses. It provides two packages: CryptoNAS-Server and CryptoNAS-CD. The CryptoNAS-Server package adds hard disk encryption to a file server (running Samba, NFS, DAV, etc.) without annoying its users. The CryptoNAS-CD is targeted at users who want to set up an encrypting file server without bothering about complicated administration issues.
Linux Multimedia Player is a tiny Linux-based live distribution that converts your computer into a multimedia player. It supports most of the known formats (MPEG 1 and 2, DivX, WMV, qt-mov, Real, MP3, WAV, WMA, Ogg, VCD, and DVD), acts as an MP3 streaming server, auto-detects the various partitions on IDE, SATA, and SCSI hard disks, and auto-detects sound, video, and network cards. It supports all cards as of kernel 2.6.21. Network support can be configured in the GUI. Options are menu-driven and require no knowledge of Linux.
PlumpOS is a bootable openMosix node on a CD. Pop the CD into a 486+ computer and you have an instant openMosix node. It supports loading 3rd-party packages and adding custom kernels. It takes up very few resources. It was originally a clone of clump/os, but has evolved into something that doesn't resemble it much anymore.
rpm livelinuxcd is a set of ISO images and a toolkit. The first CD image is a basic live CD with X/KDE, GNOME, twm, VPN/DSL, kickstart, and other tools based on RPM packages. The second CD image includes a server with ssh, Apache, PHP, MySQL, Samba, Squid, and more, but without X11. The toolkit consists of shell scripts to create new CDs from RPM package lists or comps files.
Salvare (from the Latin "to rescue") is a small Linux distribution designed for small, credit-card sized CDs which typically hold around 34MB. More Linux than tomsrtbt but less than Knoppix, it aims to provide a useful workstation as well as a rescue disk. In addition to providing a rescue environment similart to tomsrtbt, it adds OpenSSH, a graphical and text mode Web browser (Links), security tools such as chkrootkit, nmap, and tcpdump, the ability to apt-get install additional software from Debian into tmpfs, the ability to run entirely from RAM, and much more. It's also customizable using a simple source-code based package management system.
MBCD (MultiBootCD) is a shell script to make a customized CD-ROM that can boot any kind and any number of image files. Currently, 4 types of images are supported: floppy images (1.2M, 1.44M, or 2.88M), Knoppix-like images, kernel-binary images (e.g. memtest86), and the Windows XP Recovery Console.
S-terminal lets you create a secure X terminal. Regular X terminals pass unencrypted data between you the remote machine. S-terminal creates an encrypted tunnel through which all X traffic passes. It replaces the remote xdm login screen with a local application that collects username and password, then sets up an ssh tunnel to the remote host and starts a session. It is highly configurable both in appearance and behavior, and deployed S-terminals can be remotely administered. Best of all, it can be added to a KNOPPIX CD to create an instant, bootable, secure X terminal CD.
