Tsung is a distributed load testing tool. It is protocol-independent and can currently be used to stress HTTP, WebDAV, PostgreSQL, MySQL, LDAP, AMQP, and XMPP/Jabber servers. It simulates user behavior using an XML description file, reports many measurements in real time (statistics can be customized with transactions, and graphics generated using gnuplot). For HTTP, it supports 1.0 and 1.1, has a proxy mode to record sessions, supports GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE methods, cookies, and basic/digest authentication. It also has support for SSL, WebSocket, and BOSH.
TChat is a chat applet that makes it possible for your site's users and visitors to communicate through the Web. The applet is completely customizable and can be confiured with your company logo and sponsors’ banners. The server supports unlimited connections, a multithreaded architecture, an access log system, a lightweight communication protocol, platform independence, and an administration console. The client features public chat with multi-font support, multicolor text and backgrounds, private chat with audio effects, support for running embedded in an HTML page or in a detached window, a shared blackboard function, and more.
Galet is a peer-to-peer application which primarily aims to provide easy-to-setup, secure communication channels between the computers of people who know and trust each other. Its secondary goal is to create a public network based on these channels. No direct connections occur between two nodes that have not been explicitly accepted by the users of these nodes. This makes the network very difficult to censor, as an attacker's direct access to the network is limited.
MSNgrep is a script to capture MSN Messenger conversations. It uses pylibpcap to sort through MSN's jumble of packets for instant messages, a few status messages, and TypingUser notifications. Using these, it builds up a database of email addresses to MSN server addresses, and local IP addresses. This lets it match up an instant message to the sender's email address, and the receiver's email address.
