Jitac is a Java application that converts images into ASCII art by associating blocks of the image with ASCII characters. It supports several image formats (GIF, JPEG, TIFF, and PNG) and some image manipulations that can be performed before the conversion (inversion, grayscale, resize, and gamma correction).
Papillon is a security module designed for the Solaris Operating Environment. It provides security mechanisms and protections that improve the overall security of the system by adding new functionality to the kernel such as a restricted proc, chroot environment protections, secure STDIO file descriptors, restricted symlinks in /tmp, setuid protections, and more. In the current version Papillon supports Solaris (8, 9, and 10) and OpenSolaris running on x86 and SPARC architectures in 32- or 64-bit mode.
BSM Pseudonymizer pseudonymizes records from Solaris BSM audit trail files. Personal data such as user IDs, pathnames, timestamps, etc. is replaced with pseudonyms so that the generated output doesn't reveal private information about the system's users, but still preserves a maximum of integrity and consistency.
Malheur is a tool for the automatic analysis of malware behavior (program behavior recorded from malicious software in a sandbox environment). It is designed to support the regular analysis of malicious software and the development of detection and defense measures. It allows for identifying novel classes of malware with similar behavior and assigning unknown malware to discovered classes. It can be applied to recorded program behavior of various formats as long as monitored events are separated by delimiter symbols, e.g. as in reports generated by the popular malware sandboxes CWSandbox, Anubis, Norman Sandbox, and Joebox.
Sally is a tool for mapping a set of strings to a set of vectors. This mapping is referred to as embedding and allows techniques of machine learning and data mining to be applied for the analysis of string data. It can be used with data such as text documents, DNA sequences, or log files. The vector space model or bag-of-words model is used. Strings are characterized by a set of features, where each feature is associated with one dimension of the vector space. Occurrences of the features in each string are counted. Alternatively, binary or TF-IDF values can be computed. Vectors can be output in plain text, LibSVM, or Matlab format.
Derrick is a simple tool for recording data streams of TCP and UDP traffic. It shares similarities with other network recorders, such as tcpflow and wireshark, though it is more advanced than the first and clearly inferior to the latter. It has been specifically designed to monitor application-layer communication. In contrast to other tools, the application data is logged in a line-based ASCII format. Common Unix tools, such as grep, sed, and awk, can be directly applied. Even replay of recorded communication is straightforward using netcat. Derrick supports on-the-fly compression and rotation of log files.
Harry is a small tool for comparing strings and measuring their similarity. It implements several common distance and kernel functions for strings, as well as some exotic similarity measures. For example, Harry supports the Levenshtein (edit) distance, the Jaro-Winkler distance, and the compression distance. Harry is implemented using OpenMP, so its runtime scales linearly with the number of available CPU cores. Efficient implementations and effective caching speed comparison of strings.
Actually this is not a "real" comment, but who cares.
I am really interested in feedback regarding Papillon. As you can
imagine, I can't afford a farm of different Sun boxes to test
this module, actually I can't even afford one multi-processor
Sun box. I am justing testing the code on my Ultra 10, a
a lonely Intel system and some poor Sparc Classics.
So... If you have made any experiences with Papillon, positive
or negative, let me know.
Jitac... people you are crazy.
When I wrote this little application, I didn't expect any response.
But for some strange reason people seem to be interested in
Image To ASCII Conversion.
I thought I could ignore this and tried to continue with my rather
serious projects, but... I was wrong.
So here I am. If you have generated impressing artwork using
Jitac post an URL, if you need new features, just say a word and
if you think this all is crap, well, okay!
