libpwstor is a library implementing a password storage format for C programmers. This format provides a reasonable level of security by utilizing SHA-256 in addition to a random salt to mitigate dictionary and rainbow table attacks. In addition to the core functionality, libpwstor also offers some additional functions such as Base64 encoding and decoding. All functionality is implemented and designed in such a way as to be easy to use for C programmers of varying skill levels, while preserving reasonable security in the underlying storage format.
BSDftpd-ssl is a secure and easy-to-use FTP server that supports industry standard TLS/SSL encryption and authentication for whole FTP sessions and data transfers. This implementation supports both the original FTP protocol and the RFC2228-compliant TLS/SSL enhancement. The package contains the secure FTP server (named "ftpd") and a command line TLS/SSL-aware FTP client (named "ftps"). The server's features include logging of transfers, changing of a session root (known as "chroot"), and virtual host support.
The Subukan Sensor is a complete Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) platform. It is not simply an application one can install on an existing operating system. Rather, Subukan is a total software solution including both an operating system and a unique compilation of security tools. It is based on a single file image or firmware that transforms almost any hardware equipment into a fully functional NIDS appliance. Appliance- based technology simplifies administration and provides the capability for remote upgrades.
GLD-fork is a fork of the GLD program by Salim Gasmi. The fork has been made because the original project has been dead for many years, and some new featured were needed. GLD-fork, as with the original GLD, adds greylisting functionality to the Postfix mail server. Greylisting is a fairly resource friendly anti-spam technique. GLD-fork can easily be combined with other (more resource consuming) tools to build anti-spam protection.
Minnow is a concurrent programming language with a Ruby-like syntax. It compiles to an executable and uses a companion library to allow fully-rebalanced microthreads. Minnow gains a lot of strength from its actor model, which uses message passing, as opposed to threads and locking, as its concurrency model. Taking a cue from Erlang, actor creation and message passing is extremely lightweight (often on the order of a few nanoseconds). The language has a built-in foreign function interface that allows developers to leverage existing C-based libraries in a simple SWIG-like manner. Minnow's object model is based on "melding" features together to form objects.
