The SLAN project is focused on developing a flexible open source Virutal Private Networking system, primarily for securing Internet uplinks which use broadcast media such as 802.11 wireless links or public/shared ethernets. The system is flexible enough to support traditional VPN applications as well. As well as featuring an open design and strong security, the SLAN project hopes to eventually provide support for all major computing platforms.
libdvdcss is a cross-platform library for transparent DVD device access with on-the-fly CSS decryption. It currently runs under Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, BSD/OS, Solaris, BeOS, Win95/Win98, Win2k/WinXP, MacOS X, HP-UX, QNX, and OS/2. It is used by libdvdread and most DVD players such as VLC because of its portability and because, unlike similar libraries, it does not require your DVD drive to be region locked.
MuPO (Multi-Purpose-Organizer) is a powerful PIM application for desktop and PDA systems. It features a hierarchical todo-list and notes, appointments, a project-time recorder, a calendar, recurring items, and more. It is fully searchable, and it includes a tool to sync several mupo-files. You can use it on an Agenda PDA, Compaq iPaq, or on a PC running Linux or Windows. Items can be encrypted.
OpenSC provides a set of libraries and utilities to work with smart cards. Its main focus is on cards that support cryptographic operations, and facilitates their use in security applications such as authentication, mail encryption, and digital signatures. OpenSC implements the PKCS#11 API so that applications supporting this API (such as Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird) can use it. On the card, OpenSC implements the PKCS#15 standard, and aims to be compatible with every software/card that does so.
GNUnet is a peer-to-peer framework with focus on providing security. All peer-to-peer messages in the network are confidential and authenticated. The framework provides a transport abstraction layer and can currently encapsulate the network traffic in UDP, TCP, HTTP, HTTPS, or direct 802.11 (WLAN). GNUnet supports accounting to provide contributing nodes with better service. The services built on top of the framework include anonymous file sharing and a virtual network providing IPv4-IPv6 transition via protocol translation over the P2P network.
The OpenAI site is centered around an Open Source project and community involving artificial intelligence. The project itself is the creation of a set of tools that are considered to be models of human intelligence or biomimicry. These tools are intended to be integrated into applications or used stand alone for research.
