Snort is a network intrusion detection and prevention system. It is the most widely deployed technology of its kind in the world. It performs detection using a variety of methods including rules-based detection, anomaly detection, and heuristic analysis of network traffic. Its rules language is open source and available to the public as well.
AFD is a program to automatically distribute files either locally or to remote hosts. The files are distributed by using FTP or SMTP, and can be sent in parallel and with priority. It provides a GUI to monitor and control the distribution and extensive logging of all activities.
Libzdb is a database library with thread-safe connection pooling. The library can connect transparently to multiple database systems. It has zero runtime configuration and connections are specified via a URL scheme. A modern object-oriented API is provided. Libzdb supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and Oracle.
Dar is a shell command that makes backup of a directory tree and files. Its features include splitting archives over several files, DVD, CD, ZIP, or floppies, compression, full or differential backups, strong encryption, proper saving and restoration of hard links, extended attributes, file forks, Door inodes, and sparse files, remote backup using pipes and external commands (such as ssh), and rearrangement of the "slices" of an existing archive. It can run commands between slices, before and after saving some defined files or directories (for a proper database backup, for example), and quickly retrieve individual files from differential and full backups. Several external GUIs exist as alternatives to its CLI interface, like kdar, DarGUI, SaraB, etc.
OpenADK is a construction kit for embedded Linux. It creates Linux systems that are optimized for size and short bootup times. The toolchain supports many architectures (arm, m68k, mips, microblaze, ppc, sparc, superh, x86, and x86_64). It can build customized images for Qemu. Raspberry PI, Lemote Yeelong, and Sharp Zaurus devices are supported as a proof of concept. Approximately 685 source packages are available.
DISLIN is a high-level, easy-to-use plotting library for displaying data as curves, bar graphs, pie charts, 3D-colour plots, surfaces, contours, and maps. Several output formats are supported, such as X11, VGA, PostScript, PDF, CGM, HPGL, TIFF, and PNG. Plotting extensions for the interpreter-based languages Perl, Python, and Java are also supported for most operating systems.
SSLsplit is a tool that performs man-in-the-middle attacks against SSL/TLS encrypted network connections for network forensics and penetration testing. It terminates SSL/TLS and initiates a new connection to the original destination, logging all data transmitted. It supports plain TCP and SSL, HTTP and HTTPS, and IPv4 and IPv6. For SSL and HTTPS, it generates and signs forged X509v3 certificates on-the-fly using the original certificate's subject DN and subjectAltName extension. It supports Server Name Indication, RSA, DSA, and ECDSA keys, and DHE and ECDHE cipher suites. It can also use existing certificates if the private key is available.
