fsh is a tool for establishing an ssh tunnel for remote execution of commands without requiring an ssh authentication on every connection. Once the tunnel is established, remote commands can be executed almost instantaneously. This makes systems such as remote cvs over ssh much faster. It includes fcp, an rcp variant that uses fsh.
FSlint is a toolkit to find various forms of lint on a filesystem. At the moment it reports duplicate files, bad symbolic links, troublesome file names, empty directories, non stripped executables, temporary files, duplicate/conflicting (binary) names, and unused ext2 directory blocks.
mxCrypto is an extension package that provides OO-style access to the cipher algorithms and hash functions included in OpenSSL/SSLeay, a very nifty cryptographic library originally written by Eric Young and now maintained by the OpenSSL team. Its main purpose is filling in the missing parts in Andrew Kuchling's pycrypt export package with high quality implementations. Due to the ITAR export restrictions on cryptographic software, Andrew's implementations are not legally downloadable from outside the US.
pyCA is a project to create Certification Authority in Python. It will generate a CA certificate hierarchy and initial CRLs, generate certificate requests with widely used web browsers, provides a search tool for client certificates in the OpenSSL certificate database, download of client certificates/certificate revocation lists with appropriate MIME types, storing all certificate data in LDAP repositories, scripts for the handling of the certification process on a non-networked system holding the CA's private key(s) and fairly easy configuration based on the OpenSSL configuration file.
XmlBlaster is XML based MOM (Message oriented Middleware) with a lot of features. It is a publish/subscribe and point-to-point MOM server which exchanges XML-encoded messages. Communication with the server is based on CORBA (using JacORB), RMI, XML-RPC, native socket, or a persistent HTTP plugin. Subscribers can use XPath expressions to filter the messages they wish to receive and add their own MIME-based filter plugins. C/C++, Java, Perl, Python, VisualBasic.net, C#, and PHP client demos are included in the xmlBlaster test suite, and Tcl and Python demo clients are scheduled. XmlBlaster also provides a browser callback framework, allowing browsers (Netscape, Mozilla, MSIE) to receive instant callbacks over a persistent http connection. A security plugin framework allows authentication/authorization in many ways. Currently there are LDAP- and passwd-based plugins available.
Zorp is a proxy firewall suite with its core architecture is built around today's security demands: it uses application level proxies, is modular and component based, uses a script language to describe policy decisions, makes it possible to monitor encrypted traffic, lets you override client actions, and lets you protect your servers with its built in IDS capabilities.
ssh-multiadd adds multiple ssh keys to the ssh authentication agent. These may use the same passphrase. When run without arguments, it adds $HOME/.ssh/identity and $HOME/.ssh/id_dsa. Alternative file names can be given on the command line or in the configuration file. It uses ssh-askpass if necessary. Unlike ssh-add, if any of the keys use the same passphrase, you will only need to enter each unique passphrase once, and keys that are already added will not be prompted for again.
