DMAring demonstrates a novel generic network interface card driver architecture which works in hybrid interrupt-polling mode to deliver superior real-time performance on Linux, Red Hat Linux, or Linux-RTAI-LXRT (a real-time co-kernel for Linux with user level extension). Existing Linux drivers saturate the CPU at a much lower packet rate than the maximum possible wire line packet rate, but this driver allows vanilla network cards to be used for high speed packet capturing.
The CryptoNAS project wants to bring data encryption to the masses. It provides two packages: CryptoNAS-Server and CryptoNAS-CD.
