The Cambridge Z88 Software project was created by and for the "die-hard" users of the Cambridge Z88, the iPad of the 80s. Its object is to streamline the operating system, OZ, and build new Z88 applications by replacing the built-in ROM with a larger device. It also includes a Z88 emulator and debugging environment.
TkSessionManager is an X11 session manager. It is started as the last or only command in a .xinitrc or .xsession script file. It provides a user definable menu of commands that can be launched and a text area that can be used for electronic note taking. The contents of the text area can be edited, saved, cleared, copied to the X11 copy buffer, and printed.
Spectra is a simple tool designed to aid in evaluating the quality of random numbers generated by TRNGs and PRNGs. It does this by counting the occurrences of characters within a given input file to help detect perceived bias, and then visualizes the data as colored (or black and white) pixels in an image file to aid in detection of repeating patterns. As the human mind is exceptionally good at picking up on patterns that might otherwise be difficult to detect mathematically, Spectra allows the user to rapidly make a determination on the repeatability of numbers generated from the suspect RNG.
bgt is a program for creating and maintaining a budget from the UNIX/Linux command line. It is written in ANSI C. For number processing, it uses the Binary Coded Decimal number engine from bc. For data storage, it uses SQLite. All functionality for the program is available from the command line and does not require a GUI. It should be portable to other environments, including Windows, but it uses Unix-only directory names, so it would need some tweaking.
tpe-lkm is a Linux kernel module implementing Trusted Path Execution, a security feature that denies users from executing programs that are not owned by root, or are writable. This closes the door on a whole category of exploits where a malicious user tries to execute his or her own code to hack the system. Since the module doesn't use any kind of ACLs, it works out of the box with no configuration. It isn't complicated to test or deploy to current production systems. The module also has a few other grsecurity-inspired features implemented as "extras".
bcg729 is an Open Source implementation of both the encoder and decoder of the ITU G729 Annex A speech codec. It is written in C 99, is fully portable, and can be executed on many platforms, including both ARM and x86. libbcg729 supports concurrent channel encoding/decoding for multi-call applications such as conferencing. This project was initially developed as part of Mediastreamer2, Linphone's media processing engine, so it contains the glue to be integrated into Linphone/Mediastreamer2.
check_nwc_health is a plugin for the Shinken (or Nagios/Icinga) monitoring system. It is used to check hardware health, environment, interfaces, pools, uptime, etc. of a great range of the most popular network components like switches, routers, firewalls, proxies, load balancers, etc. Currently it can monitor: Cisco IOS, Cisco Nexus, F5 BIG-IP, CheckPoint Firewall1, Juniper NetScreen, HP Procurve, Nortel, Brocade 4100/4900, EMC DS 4700, EMC DS 24, Allied Telesyn, and Blue Coat SG600.
BAD (BAckup Daemon) "watches" a directory and copies any files or directories moved/copied into it to another "backup" directory automatically using inotify. It will automatically generates hashes for files using the md5 hashing algorithm, and stores them in a file for quick and easy integrity checking. It will log (mostly) everything it's doing, and makes it very convenient to grep for certain messages using multiple logging levels which the user can set to get the desired output. It has its own built-in uninstaller which will delete any and all files it has created (besides the user's watch and backup directories).
