Pkviz is a tool for plotting and cycling through and animating a series of network packets captured by tcpdump. What makes it unique is that the packets’ structure is visualized, not any labels and not time itself. Pkviz takes each byte in a packet and plots it out end-to-end, left-to-right, from the first byte to the last. How high the dot gets plotted depends on the value of the byte: bytes with a value of 0 are at the bottom and those which are 255 (0xff) – the maximum value of a byte – get plotted at the top. This might not be interesting for one packet, but that changes when you start looking at thousands of packets. Pkviz can cycle through thousands of packets in the set so you can see what happened on the wire.
PRADS is a "Passive Real-time Asset Detection System". It passively listens to network traffic and gathers information on hosts and services it sees. This information can be used to map your network, letting you know what services and hosts are alive and used. It can also be used together with your favorite IDS/IPS setup for "event to host/service" correlation. It can help you make sure that your inventory database is up to date. PRADS commes in two versions. One written in Perl, and one written in C. Some features might only be found in one of the versions.
The Cafu Engine is an all-purpose, modern 3D graphics engine and game development kit. It is feature complete to get you started quickly. It can be used to create a variety of 3D applications, including games, simulations, and training and architectural software. Written in C++, the tools, libraries, and framework have been designed to make the development of new games and other 3D applications easy. They are actively and continuously developed in order to provide the latest technology.
Torrus is an alternative software platform to MRTG, Cricket, and Cacti. In most cases it brings more flexibility and performance. It is able to poll more than 50,000 SNMP OIDs every 5 minutes from a single moderately equipped server, with simultaneous threshold monitoring of half of them. Torrus is designed to be a universal data series processing framework. Its scalable hierarchical design, application-independent core, and highly customizable architecture make it an attractive choice both for small installations and for big enterprise or carrier networks. Although most users deploy Torrus for SNMP monitoring, it might be useful for data series of any nature. Tobi Oetiker's RRDtool is used for data storage.
FastFwD is a small daemon that allows users to set up port forwarding from a source IP address and port number to a target IP address and port number easily without the need to deal with complicated ipchains/iptables-rules. FastFwD offers a fault-proof possibility for port forwarding between two networks or IP addresses and additionally gives the possibility to password-protect this connection. FastFwD has been tested for Linux and QNX and should compile and work with all POSIX-based systems.
