Lynis is an auditing and hardening tool for Unix derivatives like Linux/BSD/Solaris. It scans systems to detect software and security issues. Besides security-related information, it will also scan for general system information, installed packages, and possible configuration mistakes. The software is aimed at assisting automated auditing, software patch management, and vulnerability and malware scanning of Unix-based systems.
The goal of Escape-K is to provide an all-in-one platform for IT service management. This means that using a single application (the Escape-K client console), users are able to manage any sized computer organization, from workstation and printers to servers, databases, or network devices. Escape-K follows the main guidelines recommended by ITIL. Therefore, the core of the application is the composed of the CMDB. Depending of the chosen perspective, Escape-K users can deal with incidents and problem resolution as well as server or database administration.
net-status-monitor is a simple console script to test whether Internet connectivity is working. If it is, the script tells you the external IP address (in case your dynamic DNS provider is down). If not, it tries to find the point where the connectivity fails. The output is quite simple, so you can put it on your grandmother's PC. "Just tell me what the read line says" should give you enough information.
Nagstamon is a Nagios status monitor with a UI that resides in the systray or as a floating statusbar on your desktop. It informs you in realtime about the status of your Nagios, Icinga, Opsview, Ninja, Check_MK/Multisite, Centreon, or Thruk-monitored network. It alerts you with sound and visual notification. Failed hosts and services are easy to connect with by SSH, RDP, and VNC. Custom actions can be run on certain events. It works best with GNOME, but also with KDE, Mac OS X, and Windows.
Pantheios is a C/C++ logging API library. It offers an optimal combination of complete type-safety, very high efficiency, genericity, and extensibility. It is simple to use and extend, highly portable (platform and compiler independent), and it upholds the C tradition of only paying for what you use. Pantheios supports logging of message statements of arbitrary complexity, consisting of heterogenous types. Pantheios supports filtering of log messages based on severity level.
FTPL (FakeTime Preload Library, aka libfaketime) intercepts various system library calls and tricks programs of your choice into seeing a faked system time without having to change the time system-wide. This can be used for running legacy software with Y2K bugs, testing software for year-2038 compliance, debugging time-related issues such as expired SSL certificates, and using software that ceases to run outside a certain time frame. The faked time can be specified either absolutely or relative to the real current time, and optionally also affects file timestamps. The faked clock continues to run, but can optionally be frozen, slowed down, or made faster. A wrapper script "faketime" simplifies the usage, similar to tools such as fakechroot.
