The Shrew Soft VPN Client for Unix is a free IPsec Client for FreeBSD, NetBSD, and Linux based operating systems. It can be used to communicate with systems running ipsec-tools. The Unix client utilizes the IPsec kernel support included with the operating system, and comes with the complete Internet Key Exchange daemon and client front end application source code. A Windows version is also available.
mxallowd is a daemon for Linux Netfilter (using libnetfilter-queue) and BSD pf (using pflog) which implements a slightly improved nolisting mechanism. It requires your name server to be configured to return two MX IP addresses, and the one with higher priority must not run a mail server on port 25. mxallowd blocks attempts to connect to the mail server unless the sender tries to connect to the first mail server before the second. Since most spammers will attempt direct connections to each mail server, they will be blocked.
OpenDD is a DynDNS client, written in C, and especially designed for small gateway machines, like a Soekris box. Its main feature is that it does not require any Perl or Python interpreter. It supports HTTPS, can send a mail report, and can run as daemon. It is also very easy to deploy.
The CyaSSL embedded SSL library is a lightweight SSL library written in ANSI C and targeted for embedded and RTOS environments, primarily because of its small size, speed, and feature set. It is commonly used in standard operating environments and cloud services as well because of its royalty-free pricing and excellent cross platform support. CyaSSL supports industry standards up to the current TLS 1.2 and DTLS 1.2 levels, is up to 20 times smaller than OpenSSL, and offers progressive ciphers such as HC-128, RABBIT, and NTRU.
The MiniUPnP project is a library and a daemon. The library is aimed to enable applications to use the capabilities of a UPnP Internet Gateway Device present on the network to forward ports. The daemon adds the UPnP Internet Gateway Device functionality to a NAT gateway running OpenBSD/NetBSD/FreeBSD/Solaris with PF/IPF or Linux 2.4.x/2.6.x with netfilter. One of its most interesting features is to enforce some permissions to allow or deny redirections, bringing some security to UPnP. Newer versions also support the NAT-PMP protocol from Apple.
