dnscrypt-proxy acts as a DNS proxy between a regular client, like a DNS cache or an operating system stub resolver, and a DNSCrypt-aware resolver, like OpenDNS. The DNSCrypt protocol focuses on securing communications between a client and its first-level resolver. While not providing end-to-end security, it protects the local network (which is often the weakest link in the chain) against man-in-the-middle attacks. It also provides some confidentiality to DNS queries.
Aletheia is a browser-like application for sending raw HTTP requests. It is designed for debugging and finding security issues in Web applications. It is possible to apply filters on every request and response which can modify the content, for making Basic Authentication or OAuth requests, for example. Because it is possible to modify every bit of the request, it is easy to exploit Web applications. That means you can set, for example, custom Cookies or User-Agents, or send file uploads to the server. It uses the Apache HTTP core components library to send HTTP requests. This application also helps you understand how the HTTP protocol works.
Collax Business Server is an all-in-one Linux server for small- and medium-sized businesses. It delivers all the important network services within a heterogeneous business environment for communication, infrastructure, compliance, groupware, and storage, all in a reliable and secure way which is easy to manage. It also provides essential security functions such as firewalling and virus and spam filtering, to protect against hacker attacks, viruses, and unsolicited email messages.
RubyDNS is a high-performance DNS server that can be easily integrated into other projects or used as a stand-alone daemon (via RExec). By default, it uses rule-based pattern matching. Results can be hard-coded, computed, fetched from a remote DNS server, or fetched from a local cache, depending on requirements. In addition, RubyDNS includes a high-performance asynchronous DNS resolver built on top of EventMachine. This module can be used by itself in client applications without using the full RubyDNS server stack.
ext-Dns is a core library, an extensible forward DNS server, and some additional tools designed to create DNS server solutions which are able to do any additional operation at the resolution level (running commands, rewritting replies, gathering stats, and so on), without any limit. It provides a ready-to-use solution in case you want to build a DNS server which takes additional actions at the resolution level in an easy way. That is, its design is focused on allowing people to implement whatever they like when a request is received, freeing them from most of the details which involves handling DNS protocol.
cqueues is a comprehensive event and networking library for Lua 5.2 and LuaJIT using modern Unix O(1) polling facilities. It includes libraries for buffered socket I/O, SSL/TLS sockets, DNS querying, signal handling, threading, file change notification, and X.509 key management. It natively supports Linux, *BSD, OS X, and Solaris systems without third-party dependencies, and is interoperable with any event loop that accepts plain descriptors, or is usable standalone.
Unnamed un-names unwanted DNS entries. It was written to solve the problem of upstream DNS servers inserting bogus records for NXDOMAINs. It can be used to filter unwanted domain names like ads, porn, time wasters, etc. It is modular, so extensions are easy. Extensions can be written in Lua or compiled as shared objects.
