lldpd is an implementation of IEEE 802.1ab that provides LLDP sending and reception, It supports VLANs and includes an SNMP subagent that can interface to an SNMP agent through the AgentX protocol. LLDP is an industry standard protocol designed to supplant proprietary Link-Layer protocols such as Extreme's EDP (Extreme Discovery Protocol) and CDP (Cisco Discovery Protocol). The goal of LLDP is to provide an inter-vendor compatible mechanism to deliver Link-Layer notifications to adjacent network devices. The daemon is also able to deal with CDP, FDP, SONMP, and EDP protocols. It also handles the LLDP-MED extension.
sslsweep tests TCP services for the presence of SSL and reports things about the services found, such as the certificate's CN, the certificate's expiration timestamp, what kinds of ciphers the SSL service supports, and what versions of SSL the service supports. It can be used for security testing as well as ongoing monitoring of services. It can produce output in human readable text, HTML, and CSV. It can also run as a Nagios plugin. It can accept input on the command line or on standard input (one host:port pair per line). It can also accept Nmap scan output (in the greppable format) as input, and it will test all open TCP ports found by the Nmap scan.
Fing is a command line tool for network and service discovery. It provides you a complete view of any network in a very short time. Its smart discovery automatically detects the network type and uses the best technique to scan it. The best results are achieved on Ethernet networks (including Wireless ones), where Fing is able to detect all network hosts, firewalled ones included. The service discovery feature quickly detects active TCP services on a target host or network. Fing is based on Look@LAN.
Inject is program which can generate, inject and withdraw BGP routes, with a primary focus on network testing. It supports route and peer flapping, generation of random routes with (pseudo) random BGP attributes via a Cisco like CLI. Other features include a configuration file based on XML, test cases, help functions, and displaying of peer and route information.
The pylib library features the popular py.test command line tool for rapidly writing and running tests in Python and py.execnet, a new way to do ad-hoc distribution of Python code to remote processes. py.test runs well on Linux, Windows, and OSX using Python 2.4 through to 2.6. It can distribute a single test run to multiple machines. It is used in many projects, ranging from running tens of thousands of tests integrated with buildbot to a few inlined tests on a command line script.
Mettā is an OS for mobile, multimedia, and social applications. Mettā's purpose is to be easily deployable over a range of mobile and home devices, without tedious setup procedures, while allowing people to communicate easily in a very ambient way and express themselves freely by creating, modifying, and publishing text, audio, and video information in a simple way. Mettā's flexibility comes from transparent resource manipulation and transparently distributing computing tasks between nodes on the network, while maintaining data integrity and privacy.
