ips-qos is a flexible firewall and traffic shaping tool. It was formerly offered as installers for the popular Linux distributions. The current version is available under Debian GNU/Linux. It was intended to give administrators more control over a shared Internet connection. It includes ips, a flexible and easy-to-use configurable firewall with the ability to control access to the Internet (or selected services) from a LAN. It also includes qos, a traffic shaping tool that measures and controls the traffic load for every computer in a LAN.
LFT (Layer Four Traceroute) is a sort of "traceroute" that often works much faster than the commonly-used Van Jacobson method and goes through many configurations of packet-filter based firewalls. More importantly, LFT implements numerous other features, including TCP, UDP, or ICMP-based traces, AS number lookups through several reliable sources, loose source routing, netblock name lookups, and more. LFT also distinguishes between layer-4 protocols, which make its statistics slightly more realistic, and gives a savvy user the ability to trace protocol routes, not just layer-3 hops.
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.
NetGuard is intended to be a complete, embedded firewall solution. It is based on the Debian GNU/Linux operating system, and uses iptables to effectively manage your home or corporate LAN. It's designed to run on a wrap router board, which is hardware that can be run with no fan, no noise, and less power current. NetGuard can be also run on an old PC using the generic PC version.
Trustix™ Enterprise Firewall is a WYSIWYG firewall for iptables. It provides drag and drop security policy deployment and allows you to visualise DMZs, integrate branch offices with 3DES encrypted VPN tunnels, accelerate Internet access times with proxy caching server, and authenticate remote workers with PKI X.509 certificates. The unique GUI also allows you to manage traffic for all your zones (up to 24) as well as port forwarding and network address translation (NAT).
Dr.Morena is a tool to confirm the rule configuration of a firewall. It inspects all the firewall rules that are currently in effect, and tests these rules by sending various kinds of test packets through the firewall. This allows you to confirm that the rules that you intend to be in effect are actually in effect.
