RAR is a general purpose archiving and compression program competing with/replacing programs such as PKZip, ARJ and others. RAR offers significantly improved compression ratios, easier use and a better price as well as supporting long file names, disk spanning and self-extracting file creation. RAR introduces an original compression algorithm. It allows higher compression ratios than other PC archiving tools, especially on executable files, Object libraries, large text files, etc.
GImageView is a GTK+ based image viewer. It supports tabbed browsing, thumbnail table views, directory tree views, drag and drop, reading the thumbnail cache of other famous image viewers, and a flexible user interface. It also support movies using the Xine library and MPlayer, and supports images in compressed archive formats like tar.gz, zip, and lha.
Ingres is a feature rich and robust database (RDBMS) that's free to use, modify, and redistribute. Support is available for a reasonable price if you need it. Ingres supports many programming languages, including Python, Ruby, Java, Perl, C/C++, and more. Ingres has a bit of a learning curve, but once mastered is extremely powerful and highly tunable. It is also very stable and reliable. Ingres is one of a fairly small number of databases providing excellent geospatial features including data types and functions compliant with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Simple Feature Specification (SFS) for SQL.
scponly is an alternative "shell" of sorts for system administrators who would like to provide access to remote users to both read and write local files without providing any remote execution priviledges. Functionally, it is a wrapper around the ssh suite of applications. It is typically used by creating a user whose shell is set to scponly. This user can neither login interactively nor execute commands remotely, but it can use scp and sftp to download and upload files to the computer, governed by the usual Unix file permissions.
Stegdetect is an automated tool for detecting steganographic content in images. It is capable of detecting several different steganographic methods to embed hidden information in JPEG images. Currently, the detectable schemes are jsteg, jphide, invisible secrets, outguess 01.3b, F5, appendX, and camouflage. Using linear discriminant analysis, it also supports detection of new stego systems. Stegbreak is used to launch dictionary attacks against JSteg-Shell, JPHide, and OutGuess 0.13b.
The Sentry Firewall CD is a Linux-based bootable CD-ROM, suitable for use as an inexpensive and easy to maintain firewall, router, server, or IDS (Intrusion Detection System) node. The system is designed to be immediately configurable for a variety of different operating environments via a configuration file located on a floppy disk or on a remote server.
