GNUnet is a peer-to-peer framework with focus on providing security. All peer-to-peer messages in the network are confidential and authenticated. The framework provides a transport abstraction layer and can currently encapsulate the network traffic in UDP, TCP, HTTP, HTTPS, or direct 802.11 (WLAN). GNUnet supports accounting to provide contributing nodes with better service. The services built on top of the framework include anonymous file sharing and a virtual network providing IPv4-IPv6 transition via protocol translation over the P2P network.
The tcb suite implements the alternative password shadowing scheme on Openwall GNU/*/Linux (Owl) which allows many core system utilities (passwd(1) being the primary example) to operate with little privilege. It is being made available separately from Owl primarily for use by other distributions. This package contains three core components of the tcb suite: pam_tcb (a PAM module which supersedes pam_unix), libnss_tcb (the accompanying NSS module), and libtcb (a library for accessing tcb shadow files, used by the PAM and NSS modules as well as by user management tools on Owl).
crypt_blowfish is an efficient implementation of a modern password hashing algorithm, based on the Blowfish block cipher, provided via the crypt(3) and a reentrant interface. It is compatible with bcrypt as used in OpenBSD. It is adaptable to future processor performance improvements, allowing you to arbitrarily increase the processing cost of checking a password while still maintaining compatibility with your older password hashes. The hashes it produces are several orders of magnitude stronger than traditional Unix DES-based or FreeBSD-style MD5-based hashes.
Libslack is a library of general utilities designed to make UNIX/C programming a bit easier on the eye. It was originally implemented as part of the daemon program. It's a small library with lots of functionality, is accurately documented and was thoroughly tested. Good library naming conventions are not rigorously observed on the principle that common operations should always be easy to write and code should always be easy to read.
TnFOX is a modern secure, robust, multithreaded, exception aware, internationalizable, portable GUI toolkit library designed for mission-critical work in C++ and Python, forked from the FOX library. It replicates the Qt API in many places, comes with a full set of Python bindings, and has been designed primarily for Tn, the port of Tornado to FOX.
pam_userpass is a PAM module for use specifically by services implementing non-interactive protocols and wishing to verify a username/password pair. It uses Linux-PAM binary prompts to make it possible for applications to no longer make the flawed assumption that PAM_PROMPT_ECHO_ON requests the username and PAM_PROMPT_ECHO_OFF requests the password. It doesn't perform any actual user authentication; that is left up to further modules in the PAM stack (e.g., to pam_tcb or pam_unix).
Ice is a modern alternative to object middleware such as CORBA or COM/DCOM/COM+. It is easy to learn, yet provides a powerful network infrastructure for demanding technical applications. It features an object-oriented specification language, easy to use C++ and Java mappings, a highly efficient protocol (including protocol compression), asynchronous method invocation and dispatch, dynamic transport plug-ins, TCP/IP and UDP/IP support, SSL-based security, a firewall solution, and much more.
nexB OpenAssets is a tool for inventorying, managing, and monitoring applications, software, hardware, networks, and generally any IT asset. It is designed so that system administrators, IT, and finance can determine what they have, how it is configured, what it is used for, and how much it is being used, so that informed decisions can be made. It complements existing network management software, integrates with a growing number of protocols and tools, and features no-agent discovery and inventory, configuration management including dependencies and correlation, monitoring, and reporting. It makes extensive and innovative use of XML, Xpath, and Xquery.
OpenXAdES enables people to work with legally-binding digital signatures (primarily giving and verifying them). Legislation often defines a set of requirements that legal digital signature technologies and infrastructures must be compliant with, and OpenXAdES aims at meeting many, if not all, such requirements from different legislations.
