Authentic is a Liberty-enabled identity provider aiming to address a broad range of needs, from simple to complex setups. Its Liberty compliance relies on Lasso, a free software implementation of the Liberty Alliance specifications. It is a quixote application and is commonly run inside the Apache Web server.
AuthenticRoast allows you to build highly flexible authentication mechanisms for the Java Web tier. This can be anything from HTTP Basic authentication to authenticating with openid, facebook, or your company's Kerberos setup. The authentication modules can be combined at will and even changed at runtime. This currently works for glassfish and plain Tomcat, and allows you to use all the features of container-managed security without being constrained to the simple login methods provided.
AutoNOC is a high performance, production integrated, peer-to-peer network operations management platform for Windows and Linux. It provides real-time historical analysis, root cause, fault detection, reporting, alerts and alarms, and no-nonsense correlation. It is an interoperable vendor independent solution with built-in support for Microsoft, Cisco, Linux, IBM, and other major technologies. Additionally it offers many novel capabilities, including end user personalization, easy scalability, compressed historical databases, infinite histories, event archiving (it works as a syslog server), and multi-language support.
AutoScan is an application designed to explore and manage your network. Entire subnets can be scanned simultaneously without human intervention. It features OS detection, automatic network discovery, a port scanner, a Nessus client, a Samba share browser, and the ability to save the network state.
Automated Password Generator is a set of tools for random password generation including a standalone password generator, an RFC972 password generation server, and a Perl client for the password generation server. These feature a built-in X9.17 random number generator, and 35 modes of password generation, including pronounceable password generation.
Autossh is a program to monitor and automatically reestablish SSH connections. It is similar to rstunnel (Reliable SSH Tunnel), however, it is implemented in C, and is easier to set up and use, especially for connections to multiple hosts. Autossh has been compiled and tested on OpenBSD, Linux, and Solaris, and should run without needing changes on FreeBSD and NetBSD.
Awesum is a graphical checksum verification utility. It is very easy to use and includes support for both MD5 and SHA checksum algorithms. Unlike many checksum verification utilities, it features a progress bar that makes working with large files (such as CD-ROM ISO images) much more bearable.
BCWipe securely erases data from magnetic and solid-state memory, by repeatedly overwriting special patterns in the files to be destroyed. In normal mode, 34 patterns are used (of which 8 are random); in quick mode, U.S. DoD (Department of Defence) 5200.28 standard are used with 7-pass wiping; and in custom mode, U.S. DoD 5200.28 standards are used with a user-defined number of passes.
