Borderline is a firewall generator. It takes a generic rule specification as input and generated an highly optimized firewall. It features IPv6 rule generation, support for multiple interfaces, and integrated support for network zones. It currently only supports firewall generation for Linux 2.6 (netfilter).
htrosbif is a tool that actively probes an HTTP server. It prods the Web server in all sorts of old, new, basic, fancy, spec-compliant, and spec-breaking ways. It tries to characterize both the well-spoken educated responses and the seriously deviant babble it receives in return. Signatures contain no user data, only header names and HTTP-level quirks. As a useful side effect, this might detect reverse proxies, HTTP load balancers, intrusion prevention systems, and Web application firewalls.
FastFwD is a small daemon that allows users to set up port forwarding from a source IP address and port number to a target IP address and port number easily without the need to deal with complicated ipchains/iptables-rules. FastFwD offers a fault-proof possibility for port forwarding between two networks or IP addresses and additionally gives the possibility to password-protect this connection. FastFwD has been tested for Linux and QNX and should compile and work with all POSIX-based systems.
netsniff-ng is a high performance Linux network sniffer for packet inspection. It is similar to analyzers like tcpdump, but without the need to perform system calls for fetching network packets. A memory-mapped area within kernelspace will be used for accessing packets, so there is no requirement for copying them to userspace (a 'zero-copy' mechanism). For this purpose, netsniff-ng is libpcap independent, but nevertheless supports the pcap file format for capturing, replaying, and performing offline analysis of pcap dumps. The project is focused on building a robust, clean, and secure analyzer and utilities that complete netsniff-ng as a support for penetration testing. netsniff-ng can be used for protocol analysis, reverse engineering, and network debugging.
HotSpotEngine is a Web based software for the HotSpot Billing System and all-in-one hotspot management solutions. It supports wireless or wired networking. It is designed to run on a dedicated PC, and it is available as an installable CD image (ISO). It comes with a Linux-based OS and all required software included. Its main features include the ability to create randomly generated vouchers, prepaid user accounts with time limits or data limits, the ability to refill vouchers, and user sign-up via PayPal integration.
Mpath-tools is a set of programs for Linux 2.6 (and later) that aim to facilitate load balancing and failover over multiple and heterogeneous ISP connections, it consists of four parts. Mpathd is a daemon and the core of mpath-tools; it runs in the background, monitoring the state of each connection. It dynamically updates routing tables according to the state of the gateways and enforces rules set by the administrator. Mpath is the command line control tool; it connects to a local or remote mpathd and uses the mpath-tools client library to send commands and receive responses from the daemon. Mping is a replacement for the classic ping command that takes advantage of multipath to send multiple simultaneous ping probes using different gateways. Mpwww is a realtime Web-based network monitor; it uses the mpath-tools client library to gather data and statistics from the mpathd daemon, and displays them using HTML5 canvas and AJAX.
