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.
SOSSE (Simple Operating System for Smartcard Education) is a free smart card operating system. It is implemented in C and assembler for the Atmel AVR smart cards (Funcard, PinkCard, Jupiter). The aim of this project is to provide something like Linux for smart cards, which is a market full of NDAs. SOSSE should make it possible to learn about smart cards, and to implement and test your own ideas.
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.
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).
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.
Perl Advanced TCP Hijacking is a collection of tools for inspecting and hijacking network connections written in Perl. It consists of a packet generator, an RST daemon, a sniffer, an ICMP redirection tool, an ARP redirection tool, an IDS testing tool, and an automatic hijacking daemon for plain protocols, and features both GUI and terminal interfaces.
