Patchman is a patch status monitoring tool for Linux systems. Patchman clients send a list of installed packages and enabled repositories to the server. The server (CLI or Web) tells the user which hosts require updates, whether those updates are normal or security updates, and shows installed packages that are not part of any repository. Hosts, packages, repositories. and operating systems can be filtered using features or arbitrary tags. For example, you can find out which hosts have a certain version of a package installed, and which repository it comes from. Patchman does not (yet) have the ability to update packages on hosts.
Novo Builder is a Debian GNU/Linux tool for creating your own up-to-date Ubuntu variants customized to include the programs, themes, and customized settings that you want. It provides a convenient interface for editing and building your very own OS in under one hour (depending on your Internet speeds). Novo is so simple that a general Linux user will produce results on their very first try, but it's also powerful enough that advanced hackers are able to make it preform tasks in the way they want with full control of the end results. One of the best features of Novo is how simple it is to share what you create, so others can use your ideas in their own projects. Novo can store any number of projects, so you can have a large collection of pre-sets that you can run. Novo is able to build an OS for i386 and amd64 (if your host uses the amd64 architecture) and is able to customize which repositories you use to build and which packages you include.
Qosmos NI_DUMP (“Network Intelligence Dump”) is Linux-based tool inspired by the popular tcpdump, enabling you to read, print, or save packet data related to traffic traveling over your network. Qosmos NI_DUMP is a light and versatile packet capture tool that recognizes 120 of the most commonly used protocols and applications, including SMTP, HTTP, MySQL, and NFs. This represents a small but useful sample of the full Qosmos Protocol Portfolio, comprising over 300 protocols and 4000 metadata. Unlike conventional packet dump tools, Qosmos NI_Dump can identify protocols using non-standard TCP or UDP ports, and incorporates an easy-to-use advanced filter expression language that enables users to zoom in on data of most interest to them, such as FTP transfers matching a particular filename or HTTP requests containing a particular keyword.
