A 'honeypot' is designed to detect server-side attacks. In contrast, a 'honeyclient' is designed to detect client-side attacks. Specifically, a honeyclient is a dedicated host that drives specially instrumented applications to access remote servers to see if those servers are behaving in a malicious manner (by compromising the client). Honeyclients can proactively detect exploits against client applications without known signatures. This framework uses a client-server model with SOAP messaging as the primary communication method, and uses the free version of VMware Server as a means of virtualizing the client environment.
Firekeeper is an intrusion detection and prevention system for Firefox. It is able to detect, block and warn the user about malicious sites. Firekeeper uses flexible rules similar to Snort ones to describe browser-based attack attempts. Rules can also be used to effectively filter different kinds of unwanted content.
Cyan Secure Web Proxy Server is a carrier grade, high performance Internet filtering proxy server for Linux. It includes scalable (user/group/host) Web filter and virus scan utilities for blocking malicious applications at the gateway. It has an advanced URL database, authentication support (Active Directory, LDAP, NTLM), SSL Interception, easy deployment, and remote administration.
Wiseman is an implementation of the WS-Management specification for the Java SE platform. The project scope includes the WS-Management specification and its dependent specifications, which can be found at http://www.dmtf.org/standards/wbem/wsman/. The project requires Java SE 5+ or above, and is built on JAXB 2.0 and SAAJ 1.3 (part of the JAX-WS project). Ant scripts for standalone and Netbeans builds are supplied.
MCS MyVoIP very accurately measures the quality and performance of Internet connections for Voice over IP (VoIP) usage by simulating UDP voice data traffic between a server and browser clients. Connections are tested for jitter and packet loss and rated for the supported level of sound quality. The VoIP test can be set to various codecs or customized by packet size, packet rate, and test length. The test can further be combined with a bandwidth speed test or network route diagnostics for more in-depth connection analysis.
TDA (Thread Dump Analyzer) is a small Swing GUI for analyzing thread dumps generated by the Sun Java VM. It has been tested with 1.4.2_x, 1.5.0_x, and 1.6.0_x releases. It provides statistics, gives information about locked monitors and waiting threads, can diff between threads to look for similarities, and has "long running thread" detection.
DB_eSession is a feature-packed PHP class that stores session data in a MySQL database rather than files. It is powerful, designed with security in mind, and is easy to utilize. The code contains lots of comments, and it comes with full documentation and examples of how to use the class including a basic authentication login/logout process. It includes member functions useful (to webmasters) for monitoring or viewing, deleting, and altering sessions validity for the case of locking one or more sessions upon detection of unauthorized use.
