Weed-FS is a simple and highly scalable distributed file system. There are two objectives: to store billions of files, and to serve the files fast! Instead of supporting full POSIX file system semantics, it implements only a key-file mapping. Instead of managing all file metadata in a central master, it manages file volumes in the central master and lets volume servers manage files and the metadata. This relieves concurrency pressure from the central master and spreads file metadata into volume servers' memories, allowing faster file access with just one disk read operation. It is modelled on Facebook's Haystack design paper. Only 40 bytes of disk storage are required for each file's metadata, and disk reads are O(1).
Weplab is a tool to review the security of WEP encryption in wireless networks from an educational point of view. Several attacks are available, so it can measure the effectiveness and minimum requirements of each one. Currently, weplab supports several methods, and it is able to crack the WEP key from 600,000 encrypted packets.
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.
Whisper IM is a secure IM client that provides end-to-end encryption over a XMPP/Jabber network. The encryption system (The Whisper Protocol) is designed for instant messaging, and is IM protocol and platform neutral. It supports all standard instant messaging features, such as messages, one to one chat, and online presence. The user interface is clean and easy to use. It also features multi-user chat (JEP45), context sensitive help, a service discovery tool (JEP30), and internationalization support.
