Metasploit Express is security software for security professionals in enterprises and government agencies who need to carry out penetration tests against their systems quickly and easily. It adds a graphical user interface to the Metasploit Framework, the de-facto leader in pentesting tools, and automates many of the tasks that otherwise require custom scripting, such as smart brute forcing, evidence collection, and reporting.
Polypy is a small program to analyze rings in structures read from xyz files. This can be used, for example, to identify defects in crystal structures. The program was initially developed to analyze graphitic carbon structures, but can be used for any other structure. It includes: ring search using Franzblau statistics [Phys. Rev. B 44, 4925]; output structures marked by ring size, which can used for visualization in a program such as VMD; and extensive output with which atoms are in which ring and the neighbors of each atom.
Cyclone is a low-level network toolkit that provides support for HTTP 1.1 in an API very similar to the one implemented by the Tornado Web server. It has localization based on gettext with pluralization support, native support for XMLRPC and JSONRPC, native support for WebSockets (drafts 75 and 76), decent support for sending plain text or HTML email with TLS and attachments, built-in support for Redis, and support for HTTP authentication.
The Enhanced MetaFile format (EMF) is the native vector graphics file format on Windows. Qt is a cross-platform application development framework, widely used for the development of GUI programs. Although it provides tools for almost every aspect of software development, Qt doesn't include a straightforward solution for the export of 2D graphics to the EMF format. EmfEngine covers this lack and enables Qt-based applications to easily export graphics to the Enhanced Metafile format.
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.
OwfsWeather is a package that scans and logs weather data from various One-Wire weather sensors. It uses OWFS, the One Wire File System, to communicate with the sensors. It currently supports logging of weather data to Weather Underground, a CSV file, and to an RRD database. Current hardware supported is the WSI-601 weather station from AAG, a DS1820 temperature sensor, and the humidity and barometric pressure modules from Hobby Boards.
