iplog is a TCP/IP traffic logger. Currently, it is capable of logging TCP, UDP, and ICMP traffic. iplog is able to detect TCP port scans, TCP null scans, FIN scans, UDP and ICMP "smurf" attacks, bogus TCP flags, TCP SYN scans, TCP "Xmas" scans, ICMP ping floods, UDP scans, and IP fragment attacks. iplog is able to run in promiscuous mode and monitor traffic to all hosts on a network. iplog uses libpcap to read data from the network and can be ported to any system that supports pthreads and on which libpcap will function.
PPTP Client allows you to connect to a PPTP server from a Linux box. It sets up a PPTP call, after which the PPP daemon establishes a PPP link over that PPTP call. The client can access PPTP-based VPNs. Besides remote access to internal corporate networks, some CATV and ADSL ISPs are using PPTP to provide Internet access to their customers.
trf is an extension library to the script language tcl, as created by John Ousterhout. It extends the language at the C-level with so-called "transformer"-procedures. With the help of some patches to the core the package is able to intercept all read/write operations on designated channels, thus giving it the ability to transform the buffer contents as desired. Existing transforms include Base64, UUencode, Hashes (SHA, MD5, ...), error correction codec, zlib-based compression, script level transforms.
DashO is a Java application obfuscator, optimizer, and packager. It performs a dependency analysis on the application, removing unused methods and fields. Classes and members can be renamed using the patented Overload-induction renaming algorithm. Byte code optimization, control flow obfuscation, and string encryption can also be selectively applied. Special features include analytics for Java/Android/RIM/J2ME including exception reporting, Android obfuscation and tamper protection, and JAR watermarking.
Pidentd v3 is a much improved version of the original Ident daemon both in terms of speed, code quality and features. Features include multithreading, a "configure" script, startup autodetection, much clearer/rewritten C code, doesn't run as root after startup, has a configuration file and can be started from /etc/inittab (on systems using a SysV init).
fsh is a tool for establishing an ssh tunnel for remote execution of commands without requiring an ssh authentication on every connection. Once the tunnel is established, remote commands can be executed almost instantaneously. This makes systems such as remote cvs over ssh much faster. It includes fcp, an rcp variant that uses fsh.
distributed.net is a loosely knit group of computer users from all of the world that is taking up challenges requiring lots of computing power (most notably the RC5, DES, and OGR cracking contests). It is simple to participate in the challenges by downloading and running their client software (which uses idle CPU time to complete its tasks).
mcrypt is a program for encrypting files or streams. It is intended to be a replacement for the old UNIX crypt. It uses well-known and well-tested algorithms like BLOWFISH, AES, ARCFOUR, CAST-128, and more in several modes of operation. It also has a compatibility mode with the old UNIX crypt program and the des program found in Solaris.
