Bombardier is a software system that delivers visibility, control, and automation to data center environments. Bombardier provides a means for changes to be rolled out to a network of Linux and Windows servers in a highly controlled way, providing optimum security, logging, and centralized change control.
VanDyke ClientPack is a set of commandline utilities for securely automating file transfer, shell, and public-key administration tasks on Windows, Linux, and Unix platforms. It includes vsftp, an interactive SFTP commandline utility providing quick, easy, and secure file transfer operations, vsh, a commandline shell utility, vcp, a commandline file transfer utility, vkeygen, a public/private key generator utility, and vpka, a commandline tool for uploading keys to a Secure Shell server.
WebSH is a script that executes commands on a remote machine through Web requests. This script currently only works for Unix based servers and Unix based clients. It emphasizes the fact that a vulnerability that allows a file to be edited or uploaded is just as bad as a buffer overflow of PHP or an Apache thread.
phpRemoteShell is an all-in-one Web application to manage servers remotely. It contains a full-featured file manager, the ability to execute shell commands or code written for PHP, SQL, or LDAP, a crontab manager, and a zombie manager. It can also host itself into existing files and auto-deploy during their execution. In case it has been previously encrypted, it is able to self-decrypt on the fly.
PHPsh allows you to have shell commands run on your behalf by Web servers that serve PHP pages, and solves these issues and more. It is a simplified version of the shell that allows you to execute arbitrary commands remotely through PHP. It is a handy way to run simple commands and maintain a history of executed commands, and a helpful environment that allows you to browse the filesystem and fetch or upload files.
Ganymed SSH-2 for Java is a library that implements the SSH-2 protocol in pure Java (tested on J2SE 1.4.2, 5, and 6). It allows one to connect to SSH servers from within Java programs. It supports SSH sessions (remote command execution and shell access), local and remote port forwarding, local stream forwarding, X11 forwarding, SCP, and SFTP. There are no dependencies on any JCE provider, as all cryptographic functionality is included.
Grml is a live system (live CD) based on Debian. It includes a collection of GNU/Linux software especially for system administrators and users of texttools. It provides automatic hardware detection and its default shell is the zsh. You can use it e.g. as a rescue system, for analyzing systems/networks, or as a working environment. It is not necessary to install anything to a hard disk; you don't even need a hard disk to run it. Due to on-the-fly decompression, it includes more than 2 GB of software and documentation on the CD.
BUSH (Business Shell) combines the capabilities of BASH, PHP, GCC, and databases into a uniform design for rapidly building secure, reliable Web sites. Based on an ISO standard, it promotes code reuse: scripts and templates can be compiled with GCC or ported to JVM or .Net using third party tools with only minor changes. It can also replace BASH as an interactive command shell with SQL support, and is a general purpose scripting language.
libssh is a C library to access SSH services from a program. It can remotely execute programs, transfer files, and serve as a secure and transparent tunnel for remote programs. Its Secure FTP implementation can play with remote files easily, without third-party programs other than libcrypto (from OpenSSL) or libgcrypt.
