jidgen is a Java-based id generator that can be used as a command line program or as a library. The idea is to make automated generation of user IDs as easy as possible by introducing a simple, straightforward template language to describe the structure of the desired IDs. jidgen uses 100% Java and is thus platform independent. Itsupports collision filters for different backends to ensure the generated ID is unique in your environment. Blacklists are available to make sure all IDs are socially acceptable. As a command line program, it can easily be accessed by scripts or directly by the user. As an embedded library, it can easily be employed in the process of automated ID generation and suggestion.
The Mandos system allows computers to have encrypted root file systems and at the same time be capable of remote or unattended reboots. The computers run a small client program in the initial RAM disk environment which will communicate with a server over a network. All network communication is encrypted using TLS. The clients are identified by the server using an OpenPGP key that is unique to each client. The server sends the clients an encrypted password. The encrypted password is decrypted by the clients using the same OpenPGP key, and the password is then used to unlock the root file system.
Trafmetux is a network traffic meter for Linux. It tells you how much IP traffic has been seen by the Linux kernel module during the last few minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months. It's very useful when you have a limited Internet connection with quotas. For instance, many mobile broadband ISP provide only 3GB/month. In that case, you need to know how many megabytes you already used.
The 64 Studio Platform Development Kit (PDK) is a version control system for GNU/Linux distributions, allowing the creation and management of many different projects, based on Debian and Ubuntu sources. PDK is written in Python, and the source code is well commented and contains documented examples.
Config::Model::Backend::Augeas provides a bridge between Config::Model and Augeas configuration managements systems (à la /etc, not SCM). Augeas is able to load and write data while respecting the structure and comments of the original configuration file. Config::Model is able to validate the semantic content of the configuration file, but it will discard all comments and will write back configuration data using a canonical order.
The Monkeysphere enables you to use the OpenPGP web of trust to verify ssh connections. SSH key-based authentication is tried-and-true, but it lacks a true public key infrastructure for key certification, revocation, and expiration. Monkeysphere is a framework that uses the OpenPGP web of trust for these PKI functions. It can be used in both directions: for users to get validated host keys, and for hosts to authenticate users.
Open DHCP Server is full fledged, all purpose DHCP server. It supports nearly all industry standard functionality. It supports both dynamic and static leases, multiple domains, multiple subnets, and relay agents. It also supports BOOTP and PXEBOOT. It allows user-defined options, which can be global, range-specific, or client-specific. DHCP ranges can be further filtered by MAC address ranges, Vendor Class, or User Class.
Phacter is a Python port of facter, a tool included in Puppet. It provides an inventory of your system and, depending on how it is run, will return this data to stdout or as a Python dict. It is the first part of a project that aims to be a Python-based systems administration framework called Speed (ServersOnSpeed).
aMember Member Coupons is a plugin for aMember that allows for the creation of targeted coupons available for a single member only (rather than normal coupons). It is fully integrated with aMember, and it allows coupons to have time limits, discount by amount or percentage, and either one shot or recurring use.
