BFBTester is good for doing quick, proactive security checks of binary programs. BFBTester will perform checks of single and multiple argument command line overflows and environment variable overflows. It can also watch for tempfile creation activity to alert the user of any programs using unsafe tempfile names.
Dynamic Probes (Dprobes) is a generic and pervasive system debugging facility that will operate under the most extreme software conditions such as debugging a deep-rooted operating system problem in a live environment. Dprobes allows the insertion of fully automated breakpoints or probepoints anywhere in the system and user space. Each probepoint has an associated set of probe instructions that are interpreted when the probe fires. These instructions allow memory and CPU registers to be examined and altered using conditional logic. When the probe command terminates, prior to returning to the probed code, a syslog record may be optionally generated.
Ftwalk is a high level script programming language, very similar to awk, but greatly extended to include a richer type system, object-oriented features, 300+ built-in functions, extensibility through dynamic libraries, etc., which makes it roughly comparable to languages like Perl. It does file tree searches, and was originally used to implement selective redundant copy backup stores. It can be run interactively as a calculator.
Hammerhead is a stress testing tool for Web sites. It initiates connections from multiple IP aliases and simulates a user from each alias. It is fully configurable, and there are numerous other options for creating problems with a site. Extensive data collection is also available.
lsb-fhs tests the Filesystem Hierarchy aspects of the Linux Standard Base. The V1.0 and V2.1-X tests correspond to FHS2.0 and FHS2.1, respectively, and are now obsolete. The V2.2-X tests correspond to the FHS2.2 specification. The 2.2 tests are the current tests used for LSB 1.3 certification. The V2.3-X tests correspond to the FHS 2.3 specification and will replace the V2.2 tests for LSB 2.x certification. The V2.3 tests have yet to be formally approved by the LSB test team.
The Open Hardware Certification Program (OHCP) Test Suite is a collection of tests to verify the compatibility of your hardware with Open Source operating systems. Tests have been contributed by multiple authors and organizations, and are bundled with documentation, test procedures, and some automation scripts to help run the tests.
