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.
Hados stores files in a cluster of servers. Its goal is to handle high availability by storing copies of the same file on several nodes. It provides RESTFUL APIs to easily store, check, or retrieve files. Using the cluster APIs, you can retrieve files from whichever node hosts them. To avoid any single point of failure, it is possible to apply a request to any node of the cluster; there is no master node.
Kpl is a KDE program for two- and three-dimensional graphical presentation of data sets and functions (plotter). Multidimensional nonlinear parameter fits of functions to data sets can be performed using the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm. General linear least square parameter fits are also possible. A D-BUS interface can be used to control Kpl by other applications and scripts.
LavaFlow creates useful reports on the usage of high-performance computing clusters. It takes data from the batch scheduling system, monitoring, and other tooling, and creates reports which help administrators, managers, and end users better understand their cluster environment. The reports are modular, and new modules are easy to create using templates and Django's query set API. LavaFlow uses human-readable RESTful URLs, making it easy to automate and share links to reports.
Liberté Linux is a secure, reliable, lightweight, and easy to use Gentoo-based live USB Linux distribution intended as a communication aid in hostile environments. It installs as a regular directory on a USB/SD key, and after a single-click setup, boots on any desktop computer or laptop. The Internet connection is then used to set up a Tor circuit, which handles all network communication. During first boot, a unique email ID is generated from fingerprints of user's certificate and Tor hidden service key. This persistent ID allows one to stealthily communicate with other Liberté users. The distribution includes image and document processing applications, and can function as a secure Web browsing platform. For developers, Liberté can also serve as a robust framework for mastering Gentoo-based live USBs/CDs. The build process is fully automated with incremental build support, and is more mature and reliable than most of Gentoo's own outdated live CD tools.
