TuxBot is an IRC bot written in Lua. It was created to fit the requirements of the #linux channels on irc.oftc.net and irc.esper.net, but it is also used as a helpful bot in some other, non-Linux channels on other networks. The bot is able to link Linux channels on different networks by relaying messages between them. It is also able to kick flooders and to show the title of HTML pages after someone posted a link in a channel. Furthermore, TuxBot works as a raw multi-network IRC client for the console. There are some other features, such as the ability to extend TuxBot’s functionality using a simple module system.
Netzob supports the expert in reverse engineering, evaluation, and simulation of communication protocols. Its main goals are to help security evaluators to assess the robustness of proprietary or unknown protocol implementations, simulate realistic communications to test third-party products (IDS, firewalls, etc.), and create an Open Source implementation of a proprietary or unknown protocol. Netzob provides a semi-automatic inferring process, and includes everything necessary to passively learn the vocabulary of a protocol and actively infer its grammar. The learnt protocol can afterward be simulated. Netzob handles text protocols (like HTTP and IRC), fixed field protocols (like IP and TCP), and variable field protocols (like ASN.1-based formats).
Serial TUN/TAP Encapsulation (Stuntapen) is a simple program that implements a SLIP (RFC 1055)-like algorithm, extended to allow either IPv6 packets (when using a TUN device) or Ethernet frames (when using TAP) to be transferred over some kind of a serial line, such as a computer's serial port, a TCP stream, or an SSH session. When used together with Netcat or SSH, it could be used to create a crude but working IP tunnel or VPN, or to forward IP traffic to a low-feature embedded system via a serial line or USB, or for educational purposes.
