Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. It provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy. Individuals can use it to keep remote Websites from tracking them and their family members. They can also use it to connect to resources such as news sites or instant messaging services that are blocked by their local Internet service providers (ISPs).
Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit designed especially for email scanning on mail gateways. It provides a number of utilities, including a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a commandline scanner, and a tool for automatic database updates. The core of the package is an anti-virus engine available as a shared library.
P-Synch is a commercial password management toolkit which provides automated password synchronization, password strength enforcement, password self-reset by authenticated users, and streamlined password reset by helpdesk. P-Synch is available for both internal use as well as for Internet-based deployments in B2B and B2C applications.
IP-packetgenerator is a (ICMP/UDP/TCP)/IP packet generator written in Perl. When creating a TCP packet, it lets you specify the source and destination IP address, source and destination port, sequence and acknowledgement number, window size, and TCP flags. When creating a UDP packet, it lets you specify the source and destination IP and source and destination port. When creating an ICMP packet, it lets you specify the type, code, and mtu. Additionally, you can set the Time-to-live, set the fragmentation offset, send data within the packets, and select the number of packets to send over the wire. There are commandline and GUI versions. The configuration of packets can be read from a config file or saved to a config file.
The Router Audit Tool (rat) downloads configurations of router devices running IOS to be audited, and then checks them against the settings defined in the benchmark. For each configuration examined, it produces a report listing the following: a list of each rule checked with a pass/fail score, a raw overall score, a weighted overall score (1-10), and a list of IOS commands that will correct problems identified.
Easypass.pl is a short script that can be used to create secure, easy-to-remember passwords. It requires a dictionary file (which is standard on most Unix machines) and Perl. It features a lot of options that can be used to strengthen the password. The script was the focus of an article in the July 2002 issue ('Tools') of SysAdmin Magazine.
PacGen is an Ethernet IP TCP/UDP packet generating tool for Linux. Experimental ARP generation is included. This tool enables custom packets with configurable Ethernet, IP, TCP, and UDP layers as well as custom payloads. As an added feature there are configurations for packet count and a programmable time interval between packet sends. Plaintext config files control all the functions and represent all layers used to build packets. Included in the archive is commented source code and a recompiled binary along with example configurations.
