Grand Unified Builder (GUB) is a mini source-based distribution and packaging system. It cross-compiles several packages with their dependencies and assembles them into a single installation package. It currently supports GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows installation packages. All packages are fully relocatable and can be installed with user privileges. Plain Python classes are used to describe package build specifics. For reasonably well behaved packages, individual build specifications can stay very simple by extending the generic build specification classes. It was originally developed for turnkey building of all LilyPond binary installers.
METSlib is an object-oriented metaheuristics framework in C++ designed to make implementing or adapting models easy. The model is modular: all the implemented search algorithms can be applied to the same model. METSlib implements the basics of some metaheuristics algorithms, such as Random Restart Local Search, Variable Neighborhood Search, Iterated Local Search, Simulated Annealing, and Tabu Search. For each algorithm, you must implement an objective function, a neighborhood (move manager), and some moves. Tabu Search is one of the fastest ways to generate near-optimal solutions to a wide range of hard combinatorial optimization problems.
A 'honeypot' is designed to detect server-side attacks. In contrast, a 'honeyclient' is designed to detect client-side attacks. Specifically, a honeyclient is a dedicated host that drives specially instrumented applications to access remote servers to see if those servers are behaving in a malicious manner (by compromising the client). Honeyclients can proactively detect exploits against client applications without known signatures. This framework uses a client-server model with SOAP messaging as the primary communication method, and uses the free version of VMware Server as a means of virtualizing the client environment.
A reasonable way to achieve a long term backup of OpenPGP (GnuPG, PGP, etc) keys is to print them out on paper. Due to metadata and redundancy, OpenPGP secret keys are significantly larger than just the "secret bits". In fact, the secret key contains a complete copy of the public key. Since the public key generally doesn't need to be backed up in this way (most people have many copies of it on various keyservers, Web pages, etc), only extracting the secret parts can be a real advantage. Paperkey extracts just those secret bytes and prints them. To reconstruct, you re-enter those bytes (whether by hand or via OCR), and paperkey can use them to transform your existing public key into a secret key.
System and Process Monitor in Java provides a JNI (Java Native Interface) implementation for monitoring global system resources and processes (outside JVM) via a unified (cross-platform) interface. The Java interface and all native libraries are compiled into a single JAR and are loaded transparently on any architecture upon request. It should be easy to embedd this code into your Java applications, either as a separate JAR or as one single application archive.
