The XE Toolkit is a multi-platform, network-aware, secure performance monitoring solution for tactical analysis of enterprise computing systems. It uses Java and provides an API in the form of Java jar files that contain the programmatic interfaces needed to craft custom tools. It remains a toolkit, perhaps more complex than the SE Toolkit, but also far more versatile.
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.
Data Center Audit (DCA) is a low cost Web-based configuration management (CMDB) software application for IT data center asset management and inventory control. It is targeted for small to medium size data centers looking for a simple, non-intrusive method of management of their data center. It offers the ability to view granular details of all IT data center elements as well as the ability to view host-to-switch-to-storage mappings, reserve (check out) elements, a visual layout view of your data center, audit logging, and the ability to export views to CSV.
