PowerBroker Identity Services is an application that joins Linux, Unix, and Mac OS machines to Microsoft Active Directory and securely authenticates users with their domain credentials. Features include: joining non-Windows systems to Active Directory domains in a single step from the command line or from a GUI; authenticating users with a single user name and password; enforcing the same password policies for all platforms; supporting multiple forests with one-way and two-way cross forest trusts; caching credentials in case your domain controller goes down; and providing single sign-on for SSH and Putty. It does not require Active Directory schema changes for installation.
Whiskers is an educational PocketPC application that tries to exploit all the hardware available on most common PDAs providing a link between different features such as GPS-Bluetooth-Wireless. Generally, whiskers was built with radio reconnaissance in mind as help for geocachers or wardrivers, but also as a penetration and audit tool. There is support for in-depth device scanning, triggering actions based on filters when certain devices are in range, centralized GPS logging with search functions for private or public databases, and much more.
Check_MK is a complex addon for Nagios/Icinga and consists of three subprojects. The check and inventory system Check_MK is a general purpose Nagios plugin for retrieving data. It adopts a new approach for collecting data and obsoletes NRPE, check_by_ssh, NSClient, and check_snmp. It features a significant reduction of CPU use on the Nagios host and automatic inventory of items to be checked, and is especially useful with larger Nagios installations. "MK Livestatus" gives immediate and fast access to live and historic Nagios status data. It's a supported backend for many addons including NagVis, NagiosBP, and Thruk. "Check_MK Multisite" is a feature complete replacement for the Nagios GUI, and uses MK Livestatus as a backend. It is very fast, and supports efficient distributed monitoring.
Jmx4Perl provides an alternate way of accessing Java JEE Server management interfaces that are based on JMX (Java Management Extensions). It is an agent-based approach where a small Web application deployed on the application server provides HTTP/JSON-based access to JMX MBeans registered within the application server. It is set up from a handful of Perl modules, which can be integrated seamlessly in your own programs. It also includes a Nagios plugin, check_jmx4perl, a jmx4perl command line tool for remote JMX queries and operations, and a readline-based JMX shell j4psh, with context sensitive command completion and syntax highlighting.
Membrane SOAP Router is a modular SOAP intermediary written in Java. It is fully configurable due to Spring style configuration. You can audit SOAP traffic, route messages through DMZ, and gather performance statistics. The small memory consumption of less than 20 Megabytes makes it possible to run an instance of Membrane SOAP Monitor on any computer that provides or consumes Web services.

Orabbix is a plugin designed to work with Zabbix Enterprise Monitor to provide multi-tiered monitoring and performance and availability reporting and measurement for Oracle Databases, along with server performance metrics. It provides an effective mechanism to acquire data from numerous Oracle instances, and in turn provides this information for monitoring and performance metrics to your Zabbix server. You can then utilise the reporting capabilities of Zabbix for all data collected, and provide analysis such as graphs and service level agreement metrics for stakeholders. The current distribution contains a set of pre-defined templates that incorporate alerting and graphing capabilities from initial deployment. However, these can be fine tuned to suit your needs and data/monitoring requirements.
MoCo is a system that monitors and controls SCADA points, such as temperature, HVAC, power, lighting, sprinkler systems, and more. It has industrial capabilities, but is scalable from very small home systems to enterprise, world-wide ones. It works with inexpensive I/O bridges (including X10, Insteon, and 1-wire) from a number of manufacturers. It has sophisticated history logging and diverse control capabilities, as well as a 117-page implementation manual.
openpom is a Web interface based on NDO for Nagios or Icinga. It allows you to view almost everything about Nagios or Icinga in a single page: alert, ack, downtime, comment. You can also interact with Nagios or Icinga through ack, downtime, comment, disable, and reset buttons. You can filter on hosts and services states (such as critical, warning, unknown, ok, or outage). The status popin allows you to display graphs, either the ones from Nagios (trends.cgi) or custom ones based on RRD (such as pnp4nagios).
