mhvtl is a Linux-based virtual tape library. Supported tape emulations are IBM and HP LTO1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, Sony AIT4, STK T10000A, B, and C, and STK 9x40. It supports WORM, data, and cleaning media. Most applications work using STK L180/L700 library emulation. It has been successfully used with NetBackup, BackupExec, NetWorker, TSM, Oracle Secure Backup, and many other programs.
USB Network Gate (former USB to Ethernet Connector) easily connects one or more remote USB devices to your computer over Ethernet (Internet/LAN/WAN) as if the device was plugged into your own machine. It helps you share a USB device over Ethernet among multiple computers so people from all over the world (or your office) can use it. By intercepting the USB port activity of a shared USB device and redirecting it via TCP/IP,USB Network Gate lets you access your printer, scanner, Web cam, USB dongle, or any other supported USB device from your home PC or office laptop. Just plug the device in and it will automatically appear on the remote side of the connection. You can secure your USB data by enabling traffic encryption and access your USB devices remotely via WiFi.
radare2 aims to create a complete, portable, multi-architecture, Unix-like toolchain for reverse engineering. It is composed of a hexadecimal editor (radare) with a wrapped I/O layer supporting multiple backends for local/remote files, debugger (OS X, BSD, Linux, W32), stream analyzer, assembler/disassembler (rasm) for x86, ARM, PPC, m68k, Java, MSIL, and SPARC, code analysis modules, and scripting facilities. It also has a bindiffer named radiff, base converter (rax), a shellcode development helper (rasc), a binary information extractor supporting PE, Mach0, ELF, class, etc. named rabin, and a block-based hash utility called rahash. Radare was rewritten as radare2, and the old version is only maintained for bugfixes.
EmilPRO is a graphical disassembler for most architectures. It supports quick navigation through the code, visualizing jump destinations, and easy lookup of symbols and addresses. It also supports cross-referencing symbols and displays data (or instructions) in a hexview. Instruction types can be easily edited by the user and shared with others via a Web service. For binaries with debugging information, the high-level source code is shown in addition to the disassembled instructions. EmilPRO can open binaries of many formats, including ELF, Mach-O, and PE executables, with or without symbols.
libjpeg-turbo is a high-speed version of libjpeg for x86 and x86-64 processors. It uses SIMD instructions (MMX, SSE, SSE2) to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and decompression. libjpeg-turbo is generally 2-4 times as fast as the unmodified version of libjpeg. It also includes a wrapper library for the TurboJPEG API used by VirtualGL and TurboVNC. It was originally based on libjpeg/SIMD but has improved support for Mac OS X, 64-bit platforms, 32-bit and big endian pixel formats (RGBA/BGRA/ABGR/ARGB), accelerated Huffman encoding/decoding, and various other fixes.
checkit is a file integrity tool that adds basic data assurance capabilities to file systems which support extended attributes. It allows you to detect any data integrity issues or file changes to any file. By storing a checksum as an extended attribute, checkit provides an efficient way to detect silent data corruption, bit rot, or other modification errors. It was inspired by the checksumming performed by filesystems like BTRFS and ZFS. Checkit allows similar functionality, the ability to compare stored files and entire directory trees against a checksum at a glance.
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.
OpenNetHome is a home automation software project with a focus on being able to mix different technologies. It currently supports a number of different RF transceivers for controlling remote switches and receiving temperature and moisture data. It also supports Philips Hue lights. Its user interface is Web based, but all features are also accessible via a TCP/IP interface. It supports plugins for new features but also for new protocol encoders/decoders. Also included is a signal analyzer tool for reverse engineering new RF protocols.
comedirecord is an oscilloscope program to record data from a COMEDI-compatible device. Its philosophy is to save the data in its original unfiltered form but allow comfortable viewing of the data during an experiment. One can acquire data from multiple DAQ boards simultaneously, and also append data via an incoming TCP port, which could be a telnet connection into comedirecord or data from another program. Low-pass, high-pass, and notch filters can be switched on for each channel. A DC filter can be switched on, which is useful when observing small voltage changes at a high gain (for example, measuring small temperature changes). The output format is ASCII so that the data can be imported into GNUPLOT, scilab, or octave.
