TinyIDS is a distributed intrusion detection system (IDS) for Unix systems. It is based on the client/server architecture and has been developed with security in mind. The client, tinyids, collects information from the local system by running its collector backends. The collected information may include anything, from file contents to file metadata or even the output of system commands. The client passes all this data through a hashing algorithm and a unique checksum (hash) is calculated. This hash is then sent to one or more TinyIDS servers (tinyidsd), where it is compared with a hash that had previously been stored in the databases of those remote servers for this specific client. A response indicating the result of the hash comparison is finally sent back to the client. Management of the remotely stored hash is possible through the client's command line interface. Communication between the client and the server can be encrypted using RSA public key infrastructure (PKI).
Xpostulate is a blog/microblogging client that posts to Livejournal, InsaneJournal, IziBlog.net, DeadJournal, Scribbld, Inksome, Wordpress, and DreamWidth. It can tweet to twitter.com and dent to identi.ca so that you can announce new articles. This is all done via one interface, saving your login information for each, and thus simplifying cross-posting to your various social networking sites.
The stx::CBTreeDB is a collection of C++ classes with which read-only key-value database files can be created and read. A database efficiently maps a large number of integral fixed-length keys to opaque binary value blobs. Variable-length or duplicate keys are currently not supported. Keys are organized into a highly compact index structure, which is very similar to a B-tree and allows very fast key lookups. Both keys and values are stored in order and thus queries in a local proximity can benefit from caching effects. All applications mapping a large number of constant, integral keys to string or data blobs can benefit from this library.
When moving files between filesystems that have permissions and those that do not, the user home directory is populated with files of all sorts of permissions. UFPM (Uniform File Permission Modifier) has been designed to modify all files and directories to have a uniform permission set based upon their file type.
CloudLinux is a Linux operating system designed to improve control in the shared hosting and data center arena, while simultaneously increasing control and stability, as well as improving overall performance. It employs kernel level technology called LVE to allow Web hosting companies to control QoS of each individual Web site as well as each section of the Web site. The technology can be used for any multi-tenant environment, where it is beneficial to control resource usage of individual tenant. With CloudLinux, hosting companies can make sure that a single site cannot slow down or take down other Web sites. The OS is interchangeable with CentOS.
ptee is a Unix shell tool similar to tee, but it allows you to invoke multiple sub-shells in parallel. Standard input to ptee is copied to both normal standard output and to each sub-shell running under ptee. Each sub-command is run concurrently and fed the same input. The output of each sub-command is thrown away, but any shell expression can be used, such as redirecting to a file. Note that there are some limits on ptee. The shell pipeline will only execute at the pace of the slowest sub-command; otherwise large amounts of data would have to be buffered. Also, the shell that ptee invokes requires 'sh'-like semantics, such as supporting the -c option.
