Pagekite is software to make servers on "localhost" visible to the wider Internet. It can be used by Web developers to show off their works in progress to clients or colleagues, embedded developers who need direct access to devices in the field, or as an alternative to dynamic DNS for individuals/hobbyists who would rather host their own content than rely on 3rd party hosting. It creates and maintains a tunnel between your server on localhost and a remote "front-end" (a reverse proxy). Only the front-end has to have a visible IP address; the server itself can reside on a heavily firewalled computer, a mobile device, or even an anonymous node on the Tor network.
sec-wall is a feature-packed security proxy that supports SSL/TLS, WS-Security, HTTP Auth Basic/Digest, extensible authentication schemes based on custom HTTP headers and XPath expressions, powerful URL matching/rewriting, and an optional header enrichment. It's a security wall with which you can conveniently fence otherwise defenseless backend servers.
pymiproxy is a small, lightweight, man-in-the-middle embeddable proxy capable of performing HTTP and HTTPS (or SSL) inspection. The proxy provides a built-in certificate authority that is capable of generating certificates for SSL-based destinations. Pymiproxy is also extensible, and provides two methods for extending the proxy: method overloading and a pluggable interface. It is ideal for situations where you're in dire need of a proxy to tamper with out- and/or in-bound HTTP data.
