Access Road is a universal simulator of access controls that is intended to improve design and auditing of IT security. It provides simulations of GNU/Linux (components and rights on the file system), MySQL Server (components and privileges), and a generic Role-Based-Access-Control application. It is designed for database, system, and application administrators, IT architects and developers, and auditors. Reliability and the ability to explain the results are the main objectives. Tutorials of 80 pages are provided. A powerful framework allows new simulations to be added.
Tor-ramdisk is a uClibc-based micro Linux distribution whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an environment that maximizes security and privacy. Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Security is enhanced in tor-ramdisk by employing a monolithically compiled GRSEC/PAX patched kernel and hardened system tools. Privacy is enhanced by turning off logging at all levels so that even the Tor operator only has access to minimal information. Finally, since everything runs in ephemeral memory, no information survives a reboot, except for the Tor configuration file and the private RSA key, which may be exported and imported by FTP or SSH.
John the Ripper is a fast password cracker, currently available for many flavors of Unix, Windows, DOS, BeOS, and OpenVMS. Its primary purpose is to detect weak Unix passwords. It supports several crypt(3) password hash types commonly found on Unix systems, as well as Windows LM hashes. On top of this, lots of other hashes and ciphers are added in the community-enhanced version (-jumbo), and some are added in John the Ripper Pro.
MIMEDefang is a flexible MIME email scanner designed to do all kinds of email processing, including anti-virus scanning, anti-spam scanning, replacing parts of messages with URLs, adding boilerplate disclaimers, and so on. It can alter or delete various parts of a MIME message according to a Perl-based policy filter. It can also bounce messages with unacceptable attachments and modify SMTP response codes on the fly. It works with the Sendmail 8.11 and newer "Milter" API, which makes it more flexible and efficient than procmail-based approaches.
fwlogwatch is a packet filter and firewall log analyzer with support for Linux ipchains, Linux netfilter/iptables, Solaris/BSD/HP-UX/IRIX ipfilter, Cisco IOS, Cisco PIX/ASA, Netscreen, Elsa Lancom router, and Snort IDS log files. It can output its summaries in text and HTML and has a lot of options. fwlogwatch also features a realtime anomaly response capability with a Web interface.
PacketFence Zero Effort NAC (ZEN) is a network access control (NAC) system. It supports registration of new network devices, detection of abnormal network activities, isolation of problematic devices, remediation through a captive portal, registration-based and scheduled vulnerability scans, VLAN isolation with VoIP support (even in heterogeneous environments) for multiple switch vendors, support for 802.1X through a FreeRADIUS module, wireless integration with FreeRADIUS, DHCP fingerprinting, and more. It consists of a fully installed and preconfigured version of PacketFence inside a VMWare image.
cryptmount is a utility for creating and managing secure filing systems on GNU/Linux systems. After initial setup, it allows any user to mount or unmount filesystems on demand, solely by providing the decryption password, with any system devices needed to access the filing system being configured automatically. A wide variety of encryption schemes (provided by the kernel dm-crypt system and the libgcrypt library) can be used to protect both the filesystem and the access key. The protected filing systems can reside in either ordinary files or disk partitions. The package also supports encrypted swap partitions, and automatic configuration on system boot-up.
CryptNET Passgen (passgen) is a password generator. It generates a list of password candidates for the user to choose from by mapping operating system sources of pseudo-randomness into printable character arrays using a mod operation. A number of available command line options gives it a great deal of flexibility. It is capable of generating passwords composed of printable characters, alphanumeric characters, alphabetic characters, or only numeric characters.
strongSwan is a complete IPsec implementation for the Linux, Android, Maemo, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X operating systems. It interoperates with with most other IPsec-based VPN products via the IKEv2 or IKEv1 key exchange protocols. The focus of the strongSwan project is on strong authentication mechanisms using X.509 public key certificates and optional secure storage of private keys on smartcards through a standardized PKCS#11 interface. A rich choice of modular plugins adds additional features like Trusted Network Connect or advanced cryptographical algorithms.
