Bash Port Knocking is a set of scripts that use standard Linux tools to acheive a portk nocking system. A Web page is used to open ports, and an email is sent each time the port knocking sequence is successfully achieved. Knocks are tracked independently for each knocking IP address. A basic firewall for a gateway is included.
The objective of the NIST Web Metrics Testbed is to explore the feasibility of a range of tools and techniques that support rapid, remote, and automated testing and evaluation of website usability. There are currently six components: 1. Web Static Analyzer Tool (WebSAT): checks web page HTML against typical usability guidelines. 2. Web Category Analysis Tool (WebCAT): lets the usability engineer construct and conduct a web category analysis (card-sorting). 3. Web Variable Instrumenter Program (WebVIP): instruments a website to capture a log of user interaction. 4. Framework for Logging Usability Data (FLUD): a file format and parser for representation of user interaction logs (such as those captured by WebVIP). 5. VisVIP Tool: produces a 3D visualization of user navigation paths through a website, based on FLUD data. 6. TreeDec: adds navigation aids to the pages of a website.
NewSyslog is an updated version of a package put together by Theodore Tso of MIT Project Athena (which is included in NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, etc.). It manages the rotation and archiving of log files (primarily those written to by syslogd). This version has a mix of features from all of the other versions, and it has been made more portable than any of the others with the help of GNU Autoconf.
Sniff formats hex packets from the tcpdump program and converts them to ASCII to make them easier to read and understand. Its features include colored console output, CSV file saving, and fully customizable output. The program directly accepts all tcpdump options, including parsing from packet files.
Splunk is an engine for machine data. Use Splunk to collect, index, and harness the fast moving machine data generated by all your applications, servers, and devices: physical, virtual, and in the cloud. Search and analyze all your real-time and historical data from one place. Splunking your machine data lets you troubleshoot problems and investigate security incidents in minutes, not hours or days. Monitor your end-to-end infrastructure to avoid service degradation or outages. Meet compliance mandates at lower cost. Correlate and analyze complex events spanning multiple systems. Gain new levels of operational visibility and intelligence for IT and the business.
Throughput Monitor monitors or analyzes event frequency in log files. Its main purpose is to detect if frequency crosses specified theresholds and report about it. Alerts can be mailed or logged in realtime on running logs. Old logs can also be analyzed. Log events are described by regexes, so almost every format is readable. It can be used to detect spam, too-frequent system resource usage (for example POP or IMAP), etc.
Web Statistics Montage is a tool that compiles statistics from multiple Web sites and sends them to you in an easy-to-read, easy-to-compare format. It gathers statistics including search engine spider activity, the PageRank of each of your sites, the unique visitors to your site over the last three months, the keywords used to get to your site since that last report was generated, and much more. It requires that you have a Web hosting account that uses the cPanel control panel with AWStats installed.
