fpwdman manages a file of passwords that is accessed by one master passphrase. It can import and export password files and makes it possible for encrypted password files to easily be transferred across operating systems. It supports multiple password files, which could be used when a number set of system administrators share a site-wide file of passwords for common tasks, while each maintaining a file of personal passwords. It also exports and imports password files to and from plain text and optionally uses user-generated random entropy. The source includes two command lines tools to encrypt and decrypt: ensbc and desbc.
alph implements and analyzes historical and traditional ciphers and codes, such as polyalphabetic, substitutional, and mixed employing human-reconstructable algorithms. It provides a pipe filter interface in order to encrypt and decrypt block text to achieve transparency. The program is meant to be used in conjunction with external programs that transfer data, resulting in transparent encryption or decryption of information. The program can thus be used as a mail filter, IRC filter, IM filter, and so on.
Alerttail monitors a given file and executes a list of actions when a user-defined text pattern has been written to the file. For example, the user can pop up a GTK notification window when a certain message is written to a log file. Actions can be alerttail built in actions (GTK notify action, geoipLocalization action, or filtering text action) or a custom user defined shell command action. A Qt 4 GUI frontend helps with configuration.
vlock is a program to lock one or more sessions on the Linux console. This is especially useful for Linux machines which have multiple users with access to the console. One user may lock his or her session(s) while still allowing other users to use the system on other virtual consoles. If desired, the entire console may be locked and virtual console switching disabled.
BlueProximity helps add a little more security to the desktop. It does so by detecting a certain Bluetooth device, most likely a mobile phone, and keeping track of its distance. If it is moved away from the computer and the distance is above a certain level (no measurement in meters is possible) for a given time, it automatically locks the desktop (or starts any other shell command wanted). Once away, the computer awaits its master's return: if the device is nearer than a given level for a set time, the computer unlocks without any interaction (or starts any other shell command wanted).
Javeau is a small tool meant to provide an easy way to create and use encrypted directories, using strong cryptography and a simple interface. It works under Java 6. Data stored in these folders are encrypted and safe (using 256 bit encryption); they can be accessed only by the user (by providing the password used to create the folder), and their integrity is checked to prevent data tampering. The application sports a convenient file-manager-like interface, is very fast and small, and is completely cross-platform: you can access your encrypted storage everywhere you can run a Java 6 VM.
MN Viewer (Mobile Network Viewer) is a lightweight framework designed for system administrators who would like to be able to monitor many aspects of their network from their mobile phone. It allows for very simple expansion using simple PHP plugins. It is designed to integrate with other monitoring tools such as Cacti.
