dhcpy6d delivers IPv6 addresses for DHCPv6 clients, which can be identified by DUID, hostname, or MAC address, as in the good old IPv4 days. Addresses may be generated randomly, by range, or by arbitrary ID or MAC address. Clients can get more than one address, leases and client configuration can be stored in databases, and DNS can be updated dynamically.
Class::EHierarchy is intended for use as a base class for custom objects. The objects need one or more of the following features: orderly bottom-up destruction of objects, opaque objects, class-based access restrictions for properties and methods, primitive strict property type awareness, and alias-based object retrieval.
autofwd is an automated firewalling daemon intended to block hosts performing unwanted acts. While it was designed to be used to thwart hosts running dictionary attacks on logins (of any service), it can be used for just about anything. The external commands it runs are configurable, allowing you to take additional actions against offending hosts such as running an nmap OS fingerprint before firewalling, or just silently logging the event.
The Paranoid modules provide a number of routines that are intended for use in strict and taint-safe scripts. The modules cover a variety of tasks from command-line argument parsing to process and network management. All of the modules use a debug trace framework for diagnostic output that is easily used and extended for application code as well.
Guardian Grab eases the process of downloading the digital editions of The Guardian and The Observer newspapers, which are available through Newspaper Direct. Guardian Grab interacts with the Newspaper Direct site to log-on, identify available sections, and download the newspaper in the PDF, mobi (Kindle), or ePub formats. Downloads are arranged by paper, date, and format under a specified directory. Guardian Grab also maintains a directory holding the latest copy of each paper for easy syncing.
Sentinella is a desktop application that monitors your system activity and, when a condition is met, takes the action that you've chosen. While monitoring your CPU, memory, hard drive, and network usage, Sentinella can be programmed to take specific actions when setpoints for utilization or time are met. It can power off, reboot, or hibernate your system, kill an active process, throw an alarm, or execute any command. Sentinella integrates perfectly with the main desktop enviroments (KDE, GNOME, XFCE, and others) and works under many Unix systems.
Sagan can alert you when events are occurring in your syslogs that need your attention right away. It can store events into a Snort database, so your IDS/IPS data and log data are in the same place. This enables a single console, like Snorby or BASE, to view not only your IDS/IPS data but your log (syslog, SNMP, etc.) data as well. Sagan will correlate the data for you. It also uses 'Snort-like' rule sets, which means it is compatible with Snort rule set management software. It supports multiple output formats that any network administrator will find useful. Sagan can also stop threats based on log analysis via "Snortsam". This allows Sagan to communicate with various types of network devices (Cisco routers/ASA/etc., Linux iptables, etc).
