yaSSL is a C++ based SSL library for embedded and RTOS environments, designed for individuals who prefer to use the C++ language. For a C-based solution, please see CyaSSL. yaSSL supports the industry standards up to TLS 1.2, and also includes an OpenSSL compatibility interface.
The CyaSSL embedded SSL library is a lightweight SSL library written in ANSI C and targeted for embedded and RTOS environments, primarily because of its small size, speed, and feature set. It is commonly used in standard operating environments and cloud services as well because of its royalty-free pricing and excellent cross platform support. CyaSSL supports industry standards up to the current TLS 1.2 and DTLS 1.2 levels, is up to 20 times smaller than OpenSSL, and offers progressive ciphers such as HC-128, RABBIT, and NTRU.
Pyrit takes a step ahead in attacking WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK, the protocols that protect today's public WiFi-airspace. Pyrit's implementation allows you to create massive databases, pre-computing part of the WPA/WPA2-PSK authentication phase in a space-time-tradeoff. The performance gain for real-world-attacks is in the range of three orders of magnitude, which urges for re-consideration of the protocol's security. It exploits the computational power of multiple cores and other platforms through ATI-Stream, Nvidia CUDA, OpenCL, and VIA Padlock. It is a powerful attack against one of the world's most used security-protocols.
The Open Component Portability Infrastructure (OpenCPI) is a real-time embedded (RTE) middleware solution that simplifies programming of heterogeneous processing applications requiring a mix of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA), general-purpose processors (GPP), digital signal processors (DSP), and high-speed switch fabrics. The "mix" can be over a lifecycle (technology insertion) as well as within a single implementation (to meet SWAP constraints). CPI improves code portability, interoperability, and performance in FPGA and DSP-based environments by providing well-defined waveform component APIs with a set of infrastructure blocks that act as a hardware abstraction layer (HAL).
FastFlow is a pattern-based programming framework targeting streaming applications. It implements pipeline, farm, divide and conquer, and their composition, as well as generic streaming networks. It is specifically designed to support the development and the seamless porting of existing applications on multi-core, GPGPUs, and clusters of them. The layered template-based C++ design ensures flexibility and extendibility. Its lock-free/fence-free run-time support minimizes cache invalidation traffic and enforces the development of high-performance (high-throughput, low-latency) scalable applications. It has been proven comparable or faster than TBB, OpenMP, and Cilk on several micro-benchmarcks and real-world applications, especially when dealing with fine-grained parallelism and high-throughput applications.
Libfairydust is a small wrapper library intended for use with GPU clusters that 'hijacks' CUDA and OpenCL calls. It can be used to 're-route' calls to a certain GPU, so a process requesting GPU#0 might end up running on GPU#4 without knowing (or caring) about it. This works completely transparently and does not need any sort of 'cooperation' from the application, changes to code, or relinking.
