TrinityOS is a step-by-step, example-driven HOWTO on building a very functional Linux box with strong security in mind. TrinityOS is well known for its strong packet firewall ruleset, Chrooted and Split DNS (v9 and v8), secured Sendmail (8.x), Linux PPTP, Serial consoles and Reverse TELNET, DHCPd, SSHd, UPSes, system performance tuning, the automated TrinityOS-Security implementation scripts, and much more.
Libecc is a C++ elliptic curve cryptography library that supports fixed-size keys for maximum speed. The goal of this project is to become the first free Open Source library providing the means to generate safe elliptic curves, and to provide an important source of information for anyone with general interest in ECC.
alph implements and analyzes historical and traditional ciphers and codes, such as polyalphabetic, substitutional, and mixed employing human-reconstructable algorithms. It provides a pipe filter interface in order to encrypt and decrypt block text to achieve transparency. The program is meant to be used in conjunction with external programs that transfer data, resulting in transparent encryption or decryption of information. The program can thus be used as a mail filter, IRC filter, IM filter, and so on.
MonoDecrypt uses pattern matching and its knowledge about character frequencies in order to decrypt messages encoded with a monoalphabetic substitution cipher. MonoDecrypt can decrypt texts of any language, as long as it has sufficient information about the language. Depending on the information you give it, the tool decrypts about 50%-100% on its own. Then you can decrypt the remaining data by filling the gaps or correcting bad guesses. MonoDecrypt can also encrypt texts using monoalphabetic substitution.
FroZenLight interrelates line arts, mathematics, and cryptography. Circular shaped mirrors which are arranged in a grid-like manner reflect a light ray according to the reflection law of geometric optics. While random positions of the light source produce chaotic reflection patterns, it is possible to position the light source so that beautiful symmetric reflection patterns are created.
