Hyenae is a highly flexible and platform independent network packet generator. It allows you to reproduce low level Ethernet attack scenarios (such as MITM, DoS, and DDoS) to reveal potential security vulnerabilities of your network. Besides smart wildcard-based address randomization, a highly customizable packet generation control, and an interactive attack assistant, Hyenae comes with a clusterable remote daemon for setting up distributed attack networks.
Nagios is a host, service, and network monitoring system that will watch your network and alert you to problems before your clients or end-users do. The system runs checks on hosts and services that you specify using plugins that return status information to Nagios. When problems are encountered, the system will send notifications to system administrators so that they can take action on the problem. The JumpBox for Nagios gives you a head start to using the system. It eliminates the complexity involved in getting the application installed, and allows you to focus on the configuration for your specific environment. Since Nagios is based on plugins, depending on what you want to do this will vary in complexity.
SpotSec Network Gateway is an all in one Linux firewall and gateway distribution that features a Web-based management console. It is designed to be a unified threat management system to protect and defend a network. Common features include intrusion detection and prevention and HTTP, SMTP, and POP3 proxies with content filtering and virus scanning. The design of the Web interface is centered around the definition of networks, services, users, and time events, which allows easier modification of packet filter rules.
mSuite is a solution for enterprise-wide infrastructure management. This solution uses Monolith Event Manager (Event/Fault), Action Manager (E&N), and Reporter (Historical Reporting). Monolith integrates with a variety of availability and performance tools based upon a client's needs. mSuite can monitor syslogs, SNMP traps, and NT event logs.
Brazilfw is a mini-distribution designed for setting up network utility services such as Internet connection sharing, firewalling, or wireless access points. The goal is to make it as quick and easy as possible to set up a Linux system with only a minimal amount of Linux knowledge. The main goal of BrazilFW is to continue the development of what was the Coyote Linux floppy firewall system.
Frankenwall is a bash shell script intended to create a highly secure IPTables based Linux firewall/router with QOS/traffic shaping/bandwidth management. Be certain you know exactly what your network needs before using it. The primary focus of this project is security through an intimate understanding of your networking requirements. All configuration is done by editing text files.
Nuface is a Web-based administration tool that generates Edenwall, NuFW, or simple Netfilter firewall rules. It features a high level abstraction on the security policy set by the administrator, and works internally on an XML data scheme. Its philosophy is to let you agglomerate subjects, resources, or protocols into meta-objects, and use those meta objects to generate ACLs, which are then interpreted as netfilter rules by Nupyf, the internal XML parser. This tool may easily be extended to support firewall implementations other than Netfilter.
