AQuoSA is an open architecture for the provisioning of adaptive Quality of Service functionality into the Linux kernel. The project features a flexible, portable, and lightweight software architecture for supporting QoS-related services on top of a general-purpose operating system as Linux. The architecture is well founded on formal scheduling analysis and control theoretical results. At the core of the software is an adaptive Resource Reservation layer that is capable of dynamically adapting the CPU allocation for QoS-aware applications based on their run-time requirements.
SCOTT is a toolkit aimed to support the automated testing of smart-card based applications. Its core resides in the SCOTT Shell, a command-line interpreter which can be driven by scripts that can manipulate smart-card devices via commands made available by card-specific plug-ins. The SCOTT toolkit has been designed with portability in mind.
