Astaro Security Gateway (formerly Astaro Security Linux) is an all-in-one network security gateway that includes a firewall, intrusion protection, antivirus, spam protection, URL filtering, and a VPN gateway. Features include a modern packet filter, intrusion detection and prevention, portscan detection, application control, content filtering, virus detection for email and Web traffic, profile handling, L2TP, IPSec, SSL, and PPTP VPN tunneling, spam blocking, proxies for HTTPS, HTTP, FTP, POP3, SMTP, DNS, VoIP, SOCKS, and Ident, logging, and reporting. It supports Ethernet, VLAN, PPP, PPPoE, PPPoA, Cable Modem, IPv6, QoS, Link Aggregation, and WAN-Uplink-Load balancing in routing, and bridge mode. The WebAdmin GUI, Install Wizard, Change Tracking, Printable Configuration, and Up2Date service make it easy to install, manage, and maintain.
Birch is a simple proxy or tunnel application with a filter mechanism for line based application protocols built on TCP. Initially it was written to add encryption in a transparent way to the IRC protocol but as the encryption mechanism is implemented in a modular way, it is not restricted to just supporting encryption. Filters can be supplied via Java's Service Provider mechanism. A CLI and a GUI are available.
sshh is a set of two daemons that allows you to maintain a TCP connection if all you have available is an HTTP proxy. It is similar in functionality to httptunnel, but has a few more features. Once you have it set up, sshh will allow you to make connections forward through the proxy or backwards through it, so you can open connections in either direction.
xNBD is yet another NBD (Network Block Device) server program, which is fully compatible with the NBD client driver in the Linux kernel. In comparison with the original NBD server, it provides possibly better I/O performance by using mmap(), concurrent access from multiple clients, distributed Copy-on-Write disk, and live storage migration for virtual machines.
SSA SQL sniffer is an TCP SQL stream adapter that allows you to capture, adapt, and forward TCP streams with SQL statements sent through the network. It allows you to adapt your software database repository to a different database. It has an Oracle/PostgreSQL driver to perform conversion from an Oracle TCP SQL stream to PostGreSQL. It supports SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE.
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.
SquidTL allows proxy administrators to manage proxy users: define how much time users can spend on a specific Web site, block sites, limit total time users can spend on the Web daily, and watch users' activity. For example, you can limit the use of Facebook or other social networks with per-user rules or IP. It has a small memory footprint and very fast execution. Management can be done with a smart Web-based administration GUI.
