The Userspace Logging Daemon (ulogd) is a flexible framework for extensive logging of packets on a firewall machine. ulogd uses the ULOG target of iptables/netfilter, the packet filtering framework of Linux 2.4 and 2.6. It supports binary plugins for adding packet interpreters and output-targets (e.g., for logging into databases, user-defined filetypes, etc.).
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.
XOTcl provides a highly flexible, reflective, component-based object oriented environment that integrates language support for high level object oriented concepts (which are not found in other languages) with reasonable performance. XOTcl is an extension of TCL and was derived from the impressive OTcl language developed by D. Wetherall and C. Lindblad at MIT in 1995 and extended in various ways. XOTcl's language constructs explicitly aim at the complexity in a component gluing layer that is not solved by traditional object orientation in the style of C++ or Java.
Joseph is a Python class and program that parses config files into iptables commands. It supports ACL definitions to reduce the repetition of rules. The config file format is a custom, native English-like format that supports internal, external, and DMZ interfaces with allowed, masqueraded, and redirected services (ports).
