Aps is a small tool for analyzing network traffic. It prints out a great deal of information about the relevant protocols including TCP, UDP, ARP, and ICMP. It allows you to filter IP addresses, hardware addresses, ports, and specific protocols. It comes with a little GTK-GUI displaying packet counters for each protocol.
Advisory Check is a program that reads security advisories for you. It gathers security advisories using RSS, RDF, or XML feeds, compares them against the installed software, and alerts you if you're vulnerable. A wide variety of package managers can be queried to detect installed software. Remote systems can be monitored by using the integrated SSH, Windows-RPC, and Nmap support.
AirSAM is a desktop GUI that compliments the Web based Snort Alert Monitor. AirSAM gives up to date insight into who might be attacking your network. The ultimate goal is to give audio/visual cues right at the time of the attack. AirSAM is an Adobe Air application and should run on Mac OS, Linux, and Windows.
The AirWave Management Platform (AMP) is server software which provides a Web-based UI that gives you a single point of intelligent control for remotely monitoring and configuring multi-vendor wireless access points and other network devices. The AMP software offers device discovery, centralized policy definition, automated configuration management, firmware management, real-time monitoring, diagnostics, and reporting. AMP supports hardware from leading enterprise-grade vendors.
aircrack-ng is a set of tools for auditing wireless networks. It's an enhanced/reborn version of aircrack. It consists of airodump (an 802.11 packet capture program), aireplay (an 802.11 packet injection program), aircrack (static WEP and WPA-PSK cracking), airdecap (decrypts WEP/WPA capture files), and some tools to handle capture files (merge, convert, etc.).
AirFart is a wireless tool created to detect wireless devices, detect their signal strengths, and present them to the user in an easy-to-understand fashion. It is written in C/C++ with a GTK front end. Airfart supports all wireless network cards supported by the linux-wlan-ng Prism2 driver.
Alarm Pinger (apinger) is a little tool which monitors various IP devices by simple ICMP echo requests. Unlike most Perl or shell script tools, it does not spawn processes or use much CPU time, and is ideal for when one wants continuous monitoring and fast response upon target failure. It is written in C and supports both IPv4 and IPv6.
