The Mandos system allows computers to have encrypted root file systems and at the same time be capable of remote or unattended reboots. The computers run a small client program in the initial RAM disk environment which will communicate with a server over a network. All network communication is encrypted using TLS. The clients are identified by the server using an OpenPGP key that is unique to each client. The server sends the clients an encrypted password. The encrypted password is decrypted by the clients using the same OpenPGP key, and the password is then used to unlock the root file system.
The purpose of the glideinWMS is to provide a simple way to access the Grid resources. To achieve this without reinventing the wheel, glideinWMS is a Glidein-based WMS (Workload Management System) that works on top of Condor. Once setup, final users can submit regular Condor jobs to the local queue and the glidein factory will provide the computing resources behind the scenes. From the final user point of view, the Condor pool just magically grows and shrinks as needed.
TRIXER creates catalogs of transparent file indexes. A transparent file index is an exact mirror of a directory, except that each of its file is void, thus "taking no space", while apparently having the same size of its indexed counterpart so as to describe it fully. This is accomplished by combining sparse files support with fusecompress on-the-fly compression technology. This is useful for many purposes, e.g. creating a catalog of your CD/DVD-ROM library to browse its contents without having to physically access it. The advantage of this software is that a TRIXER catalog is a plain mountable ext2 filesystem, allowing enhanced interoperability with the huge lot of available software to handle the catalog in a number of ways.
DRS Looper is a program for running a list of commands, a certain number of commands at a time. It facilitates a variety of forms of parameterization, including hostnames for ssh or rsync. It features good error checking. Output is saved in one file per command, optionally interleaving output to stdout. It can exit on the first success or failure, or run all commands irrespective of their exit status.
Cooperation IWS is an Intranet Nomad Web Server. It is a Web server to provide hosting services for Web applications for collaborative work that contributes to knowledge management and knowledge engineering. Cooperation-iws servers are available in sixteen flavors divided into two groups: the standalone servers and the intranet system of servers.
