mimic is a server that mimics Internet servers. It includes imitators for ftpd and telnetd, and can be extended with scripting to support other types of imitation. Users will believe they are connected to authentic services (such as ftpd or telnetd) but will never be able to log in. Everything that they type is logged. In addition, scripting new imitator services is simple. The program includes a one-liner example of a fully-functional echo server. The project's goal is to create a script for imitating most, if not all, popular Internet services.
ReVirt is part of the CoVirt project, which investigated on the use of virtual machines to provide security in an operating-system-independent manner to enable the security system to function independently from the guest operating system. ReVirt logs enough information to replay the entire intrusive sequence instruction-by-instruction so that a detailed observation on the attack can be documented. It includes a system called BackTracker that helps system administrators understand (and thereby recover from) an intrusion, by automatically identifying potential sequences of steps that occurred in an intrusion. Starting with a single detection point (e.g., a suspicious file), BackTracker identifies files and processes that could have affected that detection point and displays chains of events in a dependency graph.
log4net is a tool to help the programmer output log statements to a variety of output targets. log4net is a port of the excellent log4j framework to the .NET runtime. log4net runs on the following frameworks: Microsoft .Net Framework 1.0, Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1, Microsoft .Net Compact Framework 1.0, Mono 0.23, Microsoft Shared Source CLI 1.0.
Ulog enables you to list past and present X11 sessions on a whole domain of machines. It is the X11 equivalent of "who" or "last" commands, with much more sophisticated options and search criteria (such as login username, hostname, display name, login/logout times, etc.). It relies on a ulogd daemon which keeps track of events (login, logout, etc.) sent via, for example, the startup and reset scripts of xdm.
apachelogrotate.pl rotates and packs the logfiles of the Apache Web server on a Linux system without interrupting its service and without the need for a permanent change in the Web server configuration. Assuming that Apache is running, it will identify the log files which have to be rotated without any configuration, making it easy to install. By default, logfiles with more than 10 MB are rotated, but this parameter may be changed and/or a daily, monthly, or yearly rotation period can be configured. Documentation is included in the script itself.
my-swatch pretends to be an implementation of msyslog and swatch together. What it pretends to accomplish is put all together, to log events to a remote database (like msyslog), and to awake triggers (like swatch). When a certain condition occurs you can be notified by email and awake certain events, like play a sound. You can also log the event to a remote database and use a Web browser to surf through the logs.
