Expresso Framework is an open standards-based J2EE architectural framework that allows the developer to concentrate on application logic. It is a library of extensible Java Server application framework components for creating database-driven Web applications based on open standards. Expresso integrates with Apache Jakarta Struts, which emphasizes presentation and application configuration, and bringing a powerful tag library to Expresso. Expresso adds capabilities for security, robust object-relational mapping, background job handling and scheduling, self-tests, logging integration, automated table manipulation, database connection pooling, email connectivity, event notification, error handling, caching, internationalization, XML automation, testing, registration objects, configuration management, workflow, automatic database maintenance, and a JSP tag library.
fireparse is an ADMLogger plugin that emails a report of all packets that have been logged by the kernel's packet filtering subsystem (iptables/netfilter or ipchains). The report includes source and destination ports, direction, logged packet count, matched rule, and fully resolved host names (if available). The email report can be formatted to plain text or a colored HTML table.
Firewall Log Daemon is a program written in C which will watch for ipchains or iptables log alerts in realtime. The program will start a small daemon process that parses and resolves firewall logs by reading a FIFO that syslog writes to. It can queue a batch of alerts and mail them to you, or can be used in a script to crunch an existing log file or data stream. It features hostname, port, protocol, and ICMP type/code lookup, with output formatted by a user-defined template.
iplog is a TCP/IP traffic logger. Currently, it is capable of logging TCP, UDP, and ICMP traffic. iplog is able to detect TCP port scans, TCP null scans, FIN scans, UDP and ICMP "smurf" attacks, bogus TCP flags, TCP SYN scans, TCP "Xmas" scans, ICMP ping floods, UDP scans, and IP fragment attacks. iplog is able to run in promiscuous mode and monitor traffic to all hosts on a network. iplog uses libpcap to read data from the network and can be ported to any system that supports pthreads and on which libpcap will function.
Logcheck Consolidator is a utility which manages the log files from multiple computers to help you keep track of your network. It takes logcheck e-mail and parses it for each of your systems into one piece of mail. It has a lot of built-in logic. For example, if a host does not send its hourly e-mail, the logcheck consolidator will notice this and flag it as an error at the top of the consolidated e-mail.
md5mon is a shell script that verifies files by computing their checksums. The script is suitable for use as a basic security checking tool from cron. It features configurable monitoring levels, local copies of find/md5sum, and integrity checks to prevent tampering with itself. It can also use a more secure shasum instead of md5sum.
The modular syslog allows for an easy implementation of input and output modules. The modules that mantain compatibility with its precursor are included in the standard distribution along with four modules: om_peo (an implementation of PEO-1 and L-PEO, two algorithmic protocols for integrity checking), om_mysql and om_pgsql (modules that sends output to a mysql and postgresql database, respectively) and om_regex (a module that allows output redirection using regular expressions).
nsat is a fast, stable bulk security scanner designed to audit remote network services and check for versions, security problems, gather information about the servers and the machine, and much more. Unlike many other auditing tools, it can collect information about services independently of vulnerabilities, which makes it less dependent on frequent updates as new vulnerabilities are found.
Osiris is a host integrity management system that can be used to monitor changes to a network of hosts over time and report those changes back to the administrator(s). Osiris takes periodic snapshots of the filesystem, configurations, and logs, and stores them on a central management host. When changes are detected, Osiris will log these events and optionally send email to an administrator. Osiris also has preliminary support for monitoring other system data, including user lists, file system details, kernel modules, and network interface configurations.
PIKT is cross-categorical, multi-purpose software for monitoring and configuring computer systems, administering networks, organizing system security, and much more. PIKT is intended primarily for system monitoring, and secondarily for configuration management, but its versatility and extensibility evoke many other wide-ranging uses. PIKT consists of a sophisticated, feature-rich file preprocessor; an innovative scripting language with unique labor-saving features; a flexible, centrally directed process scheduler; a customizing file installer; a collection of powerful command-line extensions; and other useful tools.
