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.
MailStripper Pro is a mail scanner that aims to remove spam and viruses from incoming mail. It recognises and decodes many obfuscation techniques used by spammers and uses several different mechanisms to recognise spam which are immune to Bayes poisoning, and has achieved real-world success of over 99.8%. It is MTA-independent and does not implant itself into your mail server. Instead, it functions as a proxy, allowing the MTA to reside on a different server.
Password Gorilla is a password manager that stores your login information, sorted by groups, in a blowfish-encrypted file, protected by a master password. User names, passwords, and URLs can be pasted into applications via the clipboard. It is file-format compatible with the well-known Password Safe software.
NSBD (Not-So-Bad Distribution) is an automated Web-based distribution system that is designed for distributing free software on the internet, where users cannot trust the network and cannot entirely trust the maintainers of software. NSBD authenticates packages with GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) or "Pretty Good(Tm) Privacy" (PGP(Tm)) digital signatures so users can be assured that packages have not been tampered with, and it limits the maintainer to only update selected files and directories on the user's computer. NSBD's focus is on security, leaving as much control as is practical in the users' hands. Network transfers are done with http or rsync.
tkccrypt is a small text file editor frontend for Peter Selinger's ccrypt written in basic Tcl/Tk. The program allows opening and storing only encrypted files, and it guarantees that the decrypted content is never written to disk. Its target audience is made up of users who don't feel confident using a console encryption tool, but need encryption for some text data. The dependency only on ccrypt and Tcl/Tk makes this program very easy to run on many Unix systems.
TCL2FTP is an extension library for Tcl scripts which allows Tcl programs to perform FTP client and gateway actions. It fully supports the FTP/FXP protocols, is ready for use with SSL/TLS, and is compatible with glFTPd. It can run simple FTP commands, and it supports 25 simultaneous FTP sessions.
trf is an extension library to the script language tcl, as created by John Ousterhout. It extends the language at the C-level with so-called "transformer"-procedures. With the help of some patches to the core the package is able to intercept all read/write operations on designated channels, thus giving it the ability to transform the buffer contents as desired. Existing transforms include Base64, UUencode, Hashes (SHA, MD5, ...), error correction codec, zlib-based compression, script level transforms.
OpenSignature is a project for the digital signature of documents. It works with all cards supported by OpenSC, and focuses on adding support for cards from accredited Italian CAs. The goal is to provide the first single product capable of supporting cards from multiple vendors/countries. This contrasts the approach taken by card vendors/providers whose software follows an exclusive single-vendor approach. OpenSignature attempts to make a major contribution to interoperability in the digital signature domain, and aims to greatly facilitate the setup of public access points that are currently the objective of several projects in Italy.
