ARP Neighbor Cache Fingerprinter is a tool that provides a mechanism for remote operating system detection by extrapolating characteristics of the target system's underlying neighbor cache and general ARP behavior. Given the non-existence of any standard specification for how the neighbor cache should behave, several differences in network stack implementations can be used for unique identification. The main disadvantage of this tool versus traditional fingerprinting is that because it's based on a Layer 2 protocol instead of a Layer 3 protocol, the target machine that is being tested must reside on the same Ethernet broadcast domain (usually the same physical network).
Armitage is a graphical cyber attack management tool for Metasploit that visualizes your targets, recommends exploits, and exposes the advanced capabilities of the framework. Armitage aims to make Metasploit usable for security practitioners who understand hacking but don't use Metasploit every day. If you want to learn Metasploit and grow into the advanced features, Armitage can help you.
HackIt! is a strategic game where your goal is to control as many Web sites as you can by hacking them. It is played on an infinite map (the whole Web) where hackers struggle for the control of the Internet. The game involves scanning sites to know who they belong to, hacking your friends' favorite pages, or tracking them to kick them out of the net.
OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is an easy-to-use integrated penetration testing tool for finding vulnerabilities in Web applications. It is designed to be used by people with a wide range of security experience and as such is ideal for developers and functional testers who are new to penetration testing as well as being a useful addition to an experienced pen tester's toolbox. ZAP provides automated scanners as well as a set of tools that allow you to find security vulnerabilities manually.
PRADS is a "Passive Real-time Asset Detection System". It passively listens to network traffic and gathers information on hosts and services it sees. This information can be used to map your network, letting you know what services and hosts are alive and used. It can also be used together with your favorite IDS/IPS setup for "event to host/service" correlation. It can help you make sure that your inventory database is up to date. PRADS commes in two versions. One written in Perl, and one written in C. Some features might only be found in one of the versions.
RubyDNS is a high-performance DNS server that can be easily integrated into other projects or used as a stand-alone daemon (via RExec). By default, it uses rule-based pattern matching. Results can be hard-coded, computed, fetched from a remote DNS server, or fetched from a local cache, depending on requirements. In addition, RubyDNS includes a high-performance asynchronous DNS resolver built on top of EventMachine. This module can be used by itself in client applications without using the full RubyDNS server stack.
StopHack is a simple to use and easy to install intrusion prevention system. It is fully adaptable and easily customized to your environment. It is built on top of proven bandwidth arbitration technology so the traffic passing through it won't be slowed down. Every packet is analyzed with regular expression-based behavior anomaly detection, and hackers are blocked immediately. It prevents reflected cross-site scripting, SQL injection, directory traversal, reflected URL redirects, login brute forcing, remote shell execution, and more.
