shsecret takes a file and splits it into N parts of equal size such that any M parts can be used to reconstruct the secret, but fewer than M will give absolutely no information about the secret. This program is written in strict ANSI C, so it should be completely portable. It is also hopefully simpler and more efficient than other implementations of the same algorithm.
Secure Syslog is a cryptographically secure system logging tool for UNIX systems. Designed to replace the syslog daemon, ssyslog implements a cryptographic protocol called PEO-1 that allows the remote auditing of system logs. Auditing remains possible even if an intruder gains superuser privileges in the system, the protocol guarantees that the information logged before and during the intrusion process cannot be modified without the auditor (on a remote, trusted host) noticing.
RedHat CD Kit consists of a set of scripts to make creating your own Red Hat-derived, bootable installation CDs as easy as possible. Also included is a script for verifying the integrity of the created image, and short descriptions of the file formats used by the Red Hat installers.
xml_pickle performs serialization to an XML format with several properties not possessed by the standard pickle module, namely, the format is human-readable, the format supports validation of stored serialized objects, and the format may be parsed, manipulated, and objects imported, by languages other than Python,
Parallel Bladeenc is a true parallel version of the Bladeenc MP3 encoder; it distributes work across CPUs to speed up MP3 encoding. It uses the Message Passing Interface (MPI) for parallelization across SMPs and/or multiple machines. Hence, if you have a 4-way SMP, you can encode your MP3s about 4 times as fast as the regular Bladeenc; if you have two 4-way SMPs, you can encode about 8 times as fast.
