PH7 is an in-process software library that implements a highly-efficient embeddable bytecode compiler and a virtual machine for the PHP programming language. It implements most PHP 5.3 constructs, including heredoc, nowdoc, gotos, classes, anonymous functions, and closures, along with powerful extensions such as function overloading, comma expressions, full type hinting, string comparison operators, and more. It is the ideal library for enhancing your application or device (such as router or set-top box) with dynamic Web interfaces, with the benefits and power of PHP and without the overhead incurred by process creation. As an embedded interpreter, it allows multiple interpreter states to coexist in the same program, without any interference between them.
LDAP Authentication Plugin for MySQL (auth_ldap) is an authentication plugin for MySQL Server. It allows you to create SQL users which are going to be authenticated using an LDAP server. This minimizes administrative duties, since your users will be able to reuse their existing accounts to access the database. The plugin requires MySQL 5.5.7 and up. It is compiled as an add-on, and does not require you to alter MySQL source code or recompile the entire server. The plugin adds support for LDAP using the openLDAP library.
Wayland is a protocol for a compositor to talk to its clients, as well as a C library implementation of that protocol. The compositor can be a standalone display server running on Linux kernel modesetting and evdev input devices, an X application, or a wayland client itself. The clients can be traditional applications, X servers (rootless or fullscreen), or other display servers.
Derrick is a simple tool for recording data streams of TCP and UDP traffic. It shares similarities with other network recorders, such as tcpflow and wireshark, though it is more advanced than the first and clearly inferior to the latter. It has been specifically designed to monitor application-layer communication. In contrast to other tools, the application data is logged in a line-based ASCII format. Common Unix tools, such as grep, sed, and awk, can be directly applied. Even replay of recorded communication is straightforward using netcat. Derrick supports on-the-fly compression and rotation of log files.
pg_xnode is an extension (module) which adds several data types to the PostgreSQL database server, allowing it to store XML documents, XML (tree) nodes, and XPath expressions. Unlike the in-core implementation of XML, pg_xnode does not require repeated parsing of XML data, and thus should be more efficient. In addition, the extension has functions to add/remove nodes to/from existing XML documents, and templates to create XML documents from tables.
Unnamed un-names unwanted DNS entries. It was written to solve the problem of upstream DNS servers inserting bogus records for NXDOMAINs. It can be used to filter unwanted domain names like ads, porn, time wasters, etc. It is modular, so extensions are easy. Extensions can be written in Lua or compiled as shared objects.
Wisecracker is a high performance distributed cryptanalysis framework that leverages GPUs and multiple CPUs. It allows security researchers to write their own cryptanalysis tools that can distribute brute-force cryptanalysis work across multiple systems with multiple multi-core processors and GPUs. Security researchers can also use the sample tools provided out-of-the-box. The differentiating aspect of Wisecracker is that it uses OpenCL and MPI together to distribute the work across multiple systems, each having multiple CPUs and/or GPUs.
Archivist is a network device configuration archiving and versioning program. It uses Subversion as its revision control system. Its multithreaded design makes it quite fast and thus suitable for operation on large networks with thousands of network devices. It supports Cisco IOS, Cisco CatOS, Juniper JUNOS, and Brocade/Foundry MLX series, but it can be easily extended to support any SSH or telnet-based network device by creating your own config download and post-processing scripts.
