jpwgen is a Java-based password generator that can be used as a command line program or as a library. The implemented functionality resembles the one provided by the popular pwgen program. The basic idea is generating passwords that, although relatively easy to remember, are complex enough for real-life usage. jpwdgen uses regular expressions for checking different types of conditions such as whether a password starts with a symbol or not, with a digit or not, etc. It supports blacklists and different types of secure random generators. As an embedded library, it can be employed in the process of password generation against certain password policies or for password suggestion services.
rmp2dstream will convert an RPM package to a dstream format package under Solaris. It preserves the user, group, and permissions of the RPM files as well as pre and post install scripts. It is intended for using RPM to build a package but using Solaris' tools to manage the final product.
Bind DLZ on Rails is a Web-based user interface for managing BIND with the bind-dlz extensions on a MySQL 5.0 backend. BIND is a DNS server, and the bind-dlz extensions enhance BIND with support for database backeneds. This simplifies the management of thousands of zones and provides added redundancy (by way of database replication).
Urpkg is software to install programs in a safe and undoable way. It is able to see what files any given installation command creates, and list and remove them. You are able to restrict the installation command so that it only writes where you allow it to, and does not overwrite files from other packages. Urpkg is especially useful if you want to install programs from source, or create binary packages in an automated way. Under the hood, urpkg creates a user for each package it has to install, which prevents the installation command from run with root privileges. It can be seen as a "command tracer" that remembers what files a command created and prevents it from doing forbidden things. It is written in C but relies on some external commands, like GNU Find.
xlax is an X11 input multiplexer: it sends your keyboard input from the xlax window to a group of windows simultaneously. The tool is designed for system administrators who typically have to do the same thing on several machines (or in several different directories). Windows can be added or deleted interactively, or temporarily disconnected and reconnected. xlax allows you to assign a custom string to each window (e.g. a hostname) that can be sent with a button click. An included script handles starting up and arranging windows, and allows you to set up commonly used window groupings in a config file.
check_websites is a very simple virus scanner for Web sites. It checks a document root directory for files with the .js extension and for codewords which might be a hint of defacement or SQL injection. This tool is made to run as a cronjob. There's no output on the screen, but it generates a logfile and mails output.
