check_aaccli is a plugin for Nagios which checks the hardware health of Adaptec SCSI RAID controllers. To accomplish this, you must have installed the aaccli binary (from the aacapps package). The plugin checks the error log of single disks (with S.M.A.R.T.) and the health of mirror containers.
check_multi is kind of a Nagios wrapper plugin which takes advantage of the Nagios 3.x capability to display multiple lines of plugin output. It calls multiple child plugins and displays their output in the long_plugin_output. A summary is given in the standard plugin output. The child return code with the highest severity becomes the parent (check_multi) plugin return code. The configuration is very simple: a NRPE-stylish config file contains a tag for each child plugin and then the check command line.
picocom is a minimal dumb-terminal emulation program. It is ideal for embedded systems since its memory footprint is minimal (less than 20K, when stripped). Apart from being a handy little tool, the source distribution includes a simple, easy to use, and thoroughly documented terminal-management library.
INSERT (the Inside Security Rescue Toolkit) aims to be a multi-functional, multi-purpose disaster recovery and network analysis system. It boots from a credit card-sized CD-ROM and is basically a stripped-down version of Knoppix. It features good hardware detection, fluxbox, emelfm, links-hacked, ssh, tcpdump, nmap, chntpwd, and much more. It provides full read-write support for NTFS partitions (using ntfs-3g), and the ClamAV virus scanner (including a fairly recent signature database and a GUI). It provides partition handling with gParted and also has a network boot facility.
JSTUN is a STUN (Simple Traversal of UDP (User Datagram Protocol) through NAT (Network Address Translation)) implementation. STUN provides a means for applications to discover the presence and type of firewalls or NATs between them and the public Internet. In the presence of a NAT, STUN can also be used by applications to learn the public Internet Protocol (IP) address assigned to the NAT.
Advisory Check is a program that reads security advisories for you. It gathers security advisories using RSS, RDF, or XML feeds, compares them against the installed software, and alerts you if you're vulnerable. A wide variety of package managers can be queried to detect installed software. Remote systems can be monitored by using the integrated SSH, Windows-RPC, and Nmap support.
