For users on Linux and Unix, KDE offers a full suite of user workspace applications which allow interaction with these operating systems in a modern, graphical user interface. This includes Plasma Desktop, KDE's innovative and powerful desktop interface. Other workspace applications are included to aid with system configuration, running programs, or interacting with hardware devices. While the fully integrated KDE Workspaces are only available on Linux and Unix, some of these features are available on other platforms. In addition to the workspace, KDE produces a number of key applications such as the Konqueror Web browser, Dolphin file manager, and Kontact, the comprehensive personal information management suite. The list of applications includes many others, including those for education, multimedia, office productivity, networking, games, and much more. Most applications are available on all platforms supported by the KDE Development. KDE also brings to the forefront many innovations for application developers. An entire infrastructure has been designed and implemented to help programmers create robust and comprehensive applications in the most efficient manner, eliminating the complexity and tediousness of creating highly functional applications.
GNU Radius is a RADIUS server and an accompanying set of monitoring utilities. It features MySQL and PostgreSQL interfaces for authentication and/or logging (the ODBC interface allows you to use almost any existing DBMS for that purpose), the ability to rewrite RADIUS requests from various NASs to normalize them to a more understandable format, and the ability to completely customize the behavior of RADIUS authentication and accounting based on NAS and user attributes.
PasTmon (Passive Application Response Time Monitor) passively monitors your application servers, measuring and reporting user response times, throughput and congestion. It currently works with HTTP, telnet, rlogin, rsh, FTP (control channel), SMTP, POP3, and IRC. Measurements are recorded in a PostgreSQL database and are presented graphically via a PHP Web front-end using R statistical analysis scripts to create the plots.
Poweradmin is a friendly Web-based DNS administration tool for Bert Hubert's PowerDNS server. The interface has full support for most of the features of PowerDNS including all zone types (master, native, and slave), supermasters for automatic provisioning of slave zones, full support for IPv6, and support for multiple languages.
NuFW is an authenticating firewall. It adds strict and secure identity-based filtering capabilities to enterprise-grade firewalls. It can also set quality of service on a per-user basis and log user activities into an SQL database. Furthermore, it can use multiple external authentication sources via PAM and be the key of a Single Sign On solution.
The WendzelNNTPd is an IPv6-ready Usenet server that aims to be as easy to use as possible. It is portable, supports AUTHINFO authentication, contains ACLs as well as role based ACLs (RBAC), supports invisible newsgroups, and features automatic prevention of double postings. WendzelNNTPd supports MySQL as well as SQlite3 backends.
Crossroads is a daemon running in user space, and features extensive configurability, polling of back ends using wake up calls, status reporting, many algorithms to select the "right" back end for a request (and user-defined algorithms for very special cases), and much more. Crossroads is service-independent: it is usable for any TCP service, such as HTTP(S), SSH, SMTP, RDP, and database connections. In the case of HTTP balancing, Crossroads can provide session stickiness for back end processes that need sessions, but aren't session-aware of other back ends. Crossroads can be run as a stand-alone daemon or via inetd, and features a management Web interface for monitoring and for modification of parameters.
