Endian Firewall is an all-in-on Linux security distribution that turns any system into a full-featured security appliance. It features a stateful packet inspection firewall, application-level proxies for various protocols (HTTP, POP3, SMTP), anti-virus support, virus and spam filtering for email traffic (POP and SMTP), content filtering of Web traffic, and a "hassle free" VPN system based on OpenVPN.
HelenOS is a microkernel-based multiserver operating system designed from scratch. By decomposing the operating system functionality into tens of isolated but intensively communicating userspace servers, it provides a computing environment that has several virtues such as flexibility, increased robustness, well defined explicit interfaces, and smaller complexity of individual components. HelenOS does not aim to be another clone of Unix or some other legacy system and is not POSIX-compliant (even though it may seem POSIX-similar at times). Instead, the goal has been to design it according to what is the most elegant and right thing to do. What makes HelenOS unique among the other multiserver operating systems is its multiplatform and multiprocessor microkernel. It will run on seven different processor architectures ranging from a 32-bit uniprocessor little-endian ARMv4 to a 64-bit multicore big-endian UltraSPARC T1.
Gendist is a live CD generator system. It has nice features like multi-distribution CDs, support for grub, isolinux, and gfxboot boot managers, and a modules system for configuring your distribution in live mode. This system is independent from the kernel version (but need unionfs and squashfs support). It only works on Debian Sid or Ubuntu Dapper.
The CryptoNAS project wants to bring data encryption to the masses. It provides two packages: CryptoNAS-Server and CryptoNAS-CD. The CryptoNAS-Server package adds hard disk encryption to a file server (running Samba, NFS, DAV, etc.) without annoying its users. The CryptoNAS-CD is targeted at users who want to set up an encrypting file server without bothering about complicated administration issues.
OpenThinClient is a thin client solution consisting of a Linux-based operating system along with a comprehensive Java-based management GUI and server component. It is intended for environments where a medium to large number of thin clients must be supported and managed efficiently.
CrossSync is a Web-based client/server configuration management platform. It provides a simple, easy to use, but powerful API platform for managing any number of heterogeneous Unix systems. Administrators can track configuration changes made anywhere across their network, simultaneously roll out new configurations to multiple servers, and restart services on many servers at once, even if they are running different operating systems. A light-weight agent application runs on each of the organization's servers to securely communicate with the CrossSync platform.
FreeNOS is an experimental microkernel operating system for learning purposes. The system is very experimental, yet it currently supports virtual memory, simple task scheduling, and interprocess communication (IPC). It currently contains support for a few devices, including VGA, keyboard, i8250 serial, ATA drives, and PCI controllers. FreeNOS has an experimental implementation of several filesystems, such as the virtual file system, procfs, tmpfs, linnfs, and ext2fs. Current application libraries include libposix, libc, libteken (terminal emulation), and libexec (executable formats). All source code has been documented with Doxygen tags. It has been tested on recent versions of Qemu, VMWare, VirtualBox, Bochs, and bare hardware.
