Portfwd is a small C++ utility which forwards incoming TCP connections and/or UDP packets to remote hosts. Multiple forwarders can be specified in a flexible configuration file. There is support for FTP forwarding.
ModSecurity is an open source intrusion detection and prevention engine for web applications. It operates embedded into the web server, acting as a powerful umbrella - shielding applications from attacks. ModSecurity supports Apache (both branches) today, with support for Java-based servers coming soon.
Local Area Security Linux
Local Area Security has released the 0.4 MAIN of their 'live CD' security toolkit which fits on a 185MB miniCD. With full Fluxbox desktop and over 250 security related tools encompassing pen testing, forensics, administration, monitoring, etc. Many additions and fixes have been made since the beta version. Along with the addition of the 'toram' boot option which allows it to be run entirely from RAM.
Rule Set Based Access Control
Rule Set Based Access Control (RSBAC) is a Free Software security extension for current Linux kernels. It is based on the Generalized Framework for Access Control (GFAC) by Abrams and LaPadula and provides a flexible system of access control based on several modules. All security relevant system calls are extended by security enforcement code. This code calls the central decision component, which in turn calls all active decision modules and generates a combined decision. This decision is then enforced by the system call extensions.
SecurityFilter is intended for use by Java Web application developers. It provides robust security and automatic authentication services for Web applications. It mimics the behavior and configuration format of container-managed security, but has several important advantages that make it an ideal solution for single-context, public Web sites, or when it is necessary or simply desirable to avoid the server configuration hassles and portability issues associated with container-managed security.
FieryFilter is an interactive desktop firewall for Linux. It will ask the user every time a new network connection is made if they want to allow or deny it. The user is able to generate rules from connections and thus minimize the amount of questions asked.
GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner (N.S.S.)
GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner (N.S.S.) is a tool that checks your network for all potential methods that a hacker might use to attack your network. By analyzing the operating system and the applications running on your network, GFI LANguard N.S.S. identifies possible security holes in your network. In other words, it plays the devil's advocate and alerts you to weaknesses before a hacker can find them, enabling you to deal with these issues before a hacker can exploit them.
Instead of having one program perform file integrity checks, another program monitoring the connectivity and health of your network, and yet another monitoring your network for intrusion detection attempts, Demarc PureSecure combines all these services into one powerful client/server program. Not only can you monitor the status of the different machines in your network, but you can also respond to changes in your network all from one centralized location. Security is already a full time job in any network, and the burden of monitoring the reports from multiple programs across dozens of servers can result in information overload. The human mind can only process so much data at any given time before it simply becomes too much to analyze. Demarc PureSecure centralizes the reporting and analysis for the entire network which allows you to more easily weed out the important data from the superfluous background noise, thereby targeting your efforts where they really belong.
Password Policy Enforcer
Password Policy Enforcer allows network administrators to create and enforce a password policy. A password policy ensures that users are choosing strong (difficult to crack) passwords. PPE checks every new password for compliance with the policy. Passwords that do not comply with the policy are rejected. PPE also displays password policy messages that help users to choose compliant passwords without having to call the helpdesk for assistance.
The Centron Gateway is an "out-of-band" strong authentication and connection gateway system. Centron is an access concentrator which performs strong authentication of user requests. In a security conscious environment, it allows an organization to effectively provide wide-ranging access to systems or services through a single, secure access point.
