CIPE (Crypto IP Encapsulation) is an ongoing project to build encrypting IP routers. The protocol used is as lightweight as possible. It is designed for passing encrypted packets between prearranged routers in the form of UDP packets. This is not as flexible as IPSEC but it is enough for the original intended purpose: securely connecting subnets over an insecure transit network.
ClusterNFS is a set of patches for the "Universal NFS Daemon" (UNFSD) to allow multiple clients to nfs mount the same root filesystem by providing "tagged" filenames. When a client requests the file "/path/filename", the ClusterNFS server checks for the existence of files of the form "/path/filename$$TAG=value$$". If such a file exists and the client has a matching value for KEY, this file is returned. If the client does not have a matching value or no such file exists, the file request proceeds as normal. Currently supported keys include HOST (hostname), IP (IP number), CLIENT (matches any nfs client) and CREATE (for "tagged" creation of files).
COSA and SRP are synchronous serial boards for ISA bus which have two channels. Each channel can be set up to one of the X.21, V.24, V.35 and V.36 hardware interfaces. The Linux kernel driver and user-space tools serve for setting up and using the COSA and SRP boards under Linux. It allows you to use it with the following link-level protocols: Cisco HDLC , synchronous PPP, or as the frame-based character device.
Coyote Linux is a mini distribution designed for setting up network utility services such as Internet connection sharing, firewalling, or wireless access points. The goal is to make it as quick and easy as possible to set up a Linux system with only a minimal amount of Linux knowledge.
DansGuardian is a Web content filtering proxy that uses Squid to do all the fetching. It filters using multiple methods including, but not limited to, phrase matching, file extension matching, MIME type matching, PICS filtering, and URL/domain blocking. It has the ability to switch off filtering by certain criteria including username, domain name, source IP, etc. The configurable logging produces a log in an easy to read format. It has the option to only log text-based pages, thus significantly reducing redundant information (such as every image on a page).
The DECnet for Linux project aims to provide the kernel-level socket layer and a set of applications to allow Linux systems to participate in a DECnet phase IV network. It currently has an application library (suitable for building DECnet functionality into X11R6), file and terminal access.
dhcpcd is an RFC2131 compliant DHCP client. It is fully featured and yet lightweight: the binary is 60k as reported by size(1) on Linux i386. It has support for duplicate address detection, IPv4LL, carrier detection, and a merged resolv.conf and ntp.conf for which other DHCP clients require third party tools.
Diald manages network links, particularly on-demand links such as dial-up SLIP or PPP. It can also be used to manage and/or monitor any network interface. Diald monitors traffic on the link and makes intelligent (and highly configurable) decisions as to when the link should be brought up or taken down. The included control program, dctrl, runs on any system with Tcl/Tk (yes, even Windows) and allows diald to be controlled and monitored remotely.
