Bastille Unix (formerly Bastille Linux) aims to be the most comprehensive, flexible, and educational Security Hardening Program for Red Hat (Fedora Core, Enterprise Linux, and original Red Hat), SuSE, Gentoo, Mandrake, and Debian Linux, as well as HP-UX and Mac OS X. Virtually every task it performs is optional, providing immense flexibility. It educates the installing admin regarding the topic at hand before asking any question. The interactive nature allows the program to be more thorough when securing, while the educational component produces an admin who is less likely to compromise the increased security.
bcnu is a Web-based system management tool which delivers information on the status of networked systems in a simple and easy-to-use manner. It uses a web browser to display information about hosts in a tabular form. Historical information can be held indefinitely, and there is a powerful query tool available to interrogate it. Client systems can run an agent which logs information back to a central system. An agent scheduler is integrated to allow agents to be run at different intervals. Standard agents include ftp, http, disk space, logfiles, processes, and more.
Berkeley DB (libdb) is a programmatic toolkit that provides embedded database support for both traditional and client/server applications. It includes b+tree, queue, extended linear hashing, fixed, and variable-length record access methods, transactions, locking, logging, shared memory caching, database recovery, and replication for highly available systems. DB supports C, C++, C#, Java, PHP, and Perl APIs. It supports key-value pair (NoSQL), SQL, and Java Object formatted data. It is available for a wide variety of Unix platforms as well as QNX, Android, Mac OS X, and several varieties of Windows.
Big Brother is a combination of monitoring methods. Unlike SNMP where information is just collected and devices polled, Big Brother is designed in such a way that each local system broadcasts its own information to a central location. Simultaneously, Big Brother also polls all networked systems from a central location. This creates a highly efficient and redundant method for proactive network monitoring.
BrowserExpress is a Web-based e-mail client. BrowserExpress provides a Web browser interface to any mail server, giving all your users Web-based e-mail from any Web browser. The BrowserExpress interface is fully customizable to support your branding, banner advertisements, and language choice. BrowserExpress implements POP3, SMTP, LDAP, and MIME standards.
The BRU Backup and Restore Utility features data-verified backups, scalability, configurability, and ease of use for Linux and Unix. Versions are available for Linux, FreeBSD, and most UNIX variants. It works via an X11 interface, command line interactive, or through a scripted, scheduled (CRON) mechanism.
Builder Xcessory PRO for Linux is the industry's most advanced graphical user interface builder for Motif. BX PRO provides a comprehensive visual reuse environment that speeds development of mission-critical applications. BX PRO integrates three best-of-breed tools to create an unparalleled application development suite.
BX/XIK automates the integration of Sitraka's (formerly KL Group) Motif based XRT widgets into Builder Xcessory PRO. After installing the XRT Integration Kit, the XRT widgets will appear on the BX PRO palette and can be "dragged-and-dropped" to create a sophisticated Motif-based user interface.
C-Kermit is a combined serial and network communication software package offering a consistent, medium-independent, cross-platform approach to connection establishment, terminal sessions, file transfer, character-set translation, numeric and alphanumeric paging, and automation of communication tasks. Recent versions include FTP and HTTP clients as well as an SSH interface, all of which can be scripted and aware of character-sets. It supports built-in security methods, including Kerberos IV, Kerberos V, SSL/TLS, and SRP, FTP protocol features such as MLSD, and source-code parity with Kermit 95 2.1 for Windows and OS/2.
CDSA stands for Common Data Security Architecture. It provides a security framework that includes cryptographically signed modules to present an abstracted unified API to the application developer to perform cryptographic and security related operations. It also includes hardware support for cryptographic tokens and biometric devices, such as thumbprint scanners. Intel has implemented the CDSA 2 specification and released it as open source.
