startvnc.pl is a script to start VNC on a system-determined port. Placed in /etc/skel/bin/ or the like, it allows each user to start VNC on his own port without having to guess or use trial-an-error on which port he should use. Based on his numerical ID (from /etc/password), this script autogenerates a static port number which should not change.
SHA_HTTP_Auth is a Perl module which allows secure HTTP Authentication using salted password hashes stored in MySQL or another database. Since (presumably) all Web traffic is wrapped in SSL and the passwords themselves are not plaintext, HTTP Basic Authentication is all that's needed to ensure secure Web logins to a protected site. Furthermore, since the user is authenticated by the Web server at layer 4, the need for session cookies is eliminated.
The program arbtt, the automatic rule-based time tracker, allows you to investigate how you spend your time, without having to manually specify what you are doing. arbtt records which windows are open and active, and provides you with a powerful rule-based language to afterwards categorize your work.

Firejail is a SUID sandbox program that reduces the risk of security breaches by restricting the running environment of untrusted applications using Linux namespaces. It currently implements hostname, filesystem, PID, IPC, and networking stack isolation, and it runs on any recent Linux system. It includes a sandbox profile for Mozilla Firefox. Firejail also expands the restricted shell facility found in bash by adding Linux namespace support. It supports sandboxing specific users upon login. The software also includes a small monitoring utility, firemon.
