CkFormLogin is a plug-in for the Nagios network monitoring system that makes it more useful in the context of secured Web sites (with login forms) and access management/single sign-on protected environments. Originally developed to monitor Web applications that require authenticated access, it works by simulating an actual user login to verify each and every step in the process. It can be used to continuously verify the "end-user" functionality of secured Web sites, detect outages in commercial access management products or externalized security plug-ins, and quickly verify security system stability after large configuration changes.
Cloonix is a Linux router and host simulation platform. It fully encapsulates application, host, and network l2 and l3 into a relatively easy-to-use simulation GUI. Network delay and loss characteristics can be configured per link. It provides support for running kvm or UML virtual machines configured into an arbitrary complex network configuration. It is possible to run a 12 router UML simulation on a small x86 host (a P4 with 512 MB RAM). 32- and 64-bit KVM machines are provided.
Flan is a network simulator written in Java. It is meant to be easily expandable by adding new protocols, which are also written in Java. It includes a graphical network construction interface, a RIPv2 (with subnets, that is) protocol, IP packets handling, etc. Flan is based on a continuous time-discrete event simulation engine (with real-time sync).
GASP is a generic protocol encoder and decoder. It offers a complete scripting language (based on Tcl) which allows you to construct or analyze any packet of data based on abstract protocol definition. This version includes all the basics networking protocols (IP, ARP, ICMP, TCP, UDP, and DNS), some protocols for archivers (ZIP, GZIP, and TAR), and some multimedia protocols (JPEG, GIF, and PNG).
IPv6 CARE, "IPv6 Compliant Automatic Runtime Environment", provides an environment where applications instantly become IPv6-compliant ('patch' mode, see RFC6535). It can also generate a diagnosis about the IPv6 compliance of an application ('check' mode). It uses an LD_PRELOAD-based library injection technique.
Impost is a network security auditing tool designed to analyze the forensics behind compromised and/or vulnerable daemons. There are two different kinds of operating modes; it can either act as a honey pot and take orders from a Perl script controlling how it responds and communicates with connecting clients, or it can operate as a packet sniffer and monitor incoming data to specified destination port supplied by the command-line arguments.
The Java Application Monitor (JAMon) is a free, simple, high performance, thread safe, Java API that allows developers to easily monitor production applications. JAMon can be used to determine application performance bottlenecks, user/application interactions, and application scalability. JAMon gathers summary statistics such as hits, execution times (total, average, minimum, maximum, standard deviation), and simultaneous application requests. JAMon statistics are displayed in the sortable JAMon report.
LANforge is a unified multi-protocol network traffic generation and WAN emulation application. It allows users to generate real world customer traffic in a controllable manner. The WAN emulator allows the injection of latency and other network oddities like dropped, duplicated, and re-ordered packets. LANforge includes a drag-and-drop virtual network builder that supports virtual routers, WAN links, traffic-generating nodes, and more. It provides a scriptable command line interface with Perl libraries as well as a graphical user interface.
