Program Guard allows the user of a Linux workstation to specify which applications are allowed to make TCP/IP connections to the Internet. Application program names can be specified by listing them in a file (Static Mode) or by querying the user (Query Mode). In Query Mode, connection attempts by unknown programs result in a Program Guard dialog box being displayed. In addition to providing connection information, this gives the workstation user the option of allowing or blocking the program either for the current instance of the program or for all future instances. It consists of a daemon, a kernel module, and a GUI interface component and makes use of the Linux Netfilter interface.
Password Tracker is an application to keep your passwords in an encrypted file on disk, protected by a pass phrase. Even if the file containing your passwords falls in the wrong hands, the pass phrase is needed to decrypt it. The application uses the unpatented Blowfish encryption algorithm. The application is based on the Password Safe application from Bruce Schneier, and it aims to be compatible with it.
Linvpn is a secure socket layer for pppd. It allows creation of virtual private networks by using an IP routing system between PPP network interfaces. Cryptography is done by libgcrypt's 3DES or blowfish, and Initialization Vector (IV) is changed in each packet transmission. As linvpn works as client and server, and communication is a single TCP connection, it allows creation of secure tunnels even in complex network layouts, when one or both endpoints are behind a firewall or NAT, with or without dynamic IP addresses.
LPMtool aims to be a complete package management and software distribution solution. It includes basic command line and PyGTK-based utilities for installing and removing packages, as well as tools to publish Web-based package repositories that use a GPG-based web-of-trust security model.
Tabfmt is a command line utility to format tabular data. The program reads lines from one or more files or from standard input, breaks the lines into fields given a set of input field delimiters, and prints a table with constant-width columns to standard output or a specified file. Many options exist to customise the output.
Sunbeam and moonshine are a KDE kicker panel applet and application pair that are intended to be used (together or in isolation) as an alternative to the current kicker panel. Apart from this, the functionality of the software has been somewhat extended to enable features like file and application search and browsing facilities, favourites, a window list, and desktop access.
