Monitoring Application for Resources and Servers
MARS is a host based system monitoring tool. It contains a distributed agent, SPOT, which is placed on each host. The MARS server can then obtain information about each of the machines the agent is running on, including status, load information, disk activity and memory information. MARS is Java based, and should run on any Unix supporting Java, as well as Microsoft Windows products.
DISCO is a passive IP discovery utility designed to sit on segments throughout a network to discover unique IPs and passively fingerprint TCP SYN packets.
Calamaris parses Squid and NetCache Native Logfiles and generates reports about Peak-usage, Request-Methods, Status- report of incoming and outgoing requests, second and Top-level destinations, content-types and performance.
Sysmon is a network monitoring tool designed to provide high performance and accurate network monitoring. Currently supported tests include monitoring of SMTP, IMAP, HTTP, TCP, UDP, Radius, NNTP, and POP3 servers. It also includes the ability to ping hosts and routers. Sysmon has the ability to understand real network topologies, including the ability to monitor multiple paths and only report the actual device that is down instead of a router that is down, and all the hosts behind it.
Damascus is a GTK+ 2.x client for the Gale communication protocol. It is somewhat modelled after IM/ICQ-style interfaces. If you don't know what Gale is, this client probably won't be very useful; you need a valid Gale key to send anything, and Damascus can't generate them (yet). Gale is also scary and confusing.
NetSplitter is a 'reverse' load balance like EQLPlus or bounding, but at the firewall/NAT level. If more than one internet connection exists, it will balance the NAT connections on those links. It runs on FreeBSD and Linux.
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.
SMSAuthenticator is an authentication module for situations where "username and password"-login provide insufficient security. The additional security is achieved by sending keys (single-use passwords) by SMS to the user's mobile phone. It solves some of the main problems with ordinary passwords (e.g., password guessing and password sniffing) without requiring special hardware on the user's side. It is a Java-based (J2SE 1.2 or higher) Web service using SOAP for communication. It also requires a database with JDBC support (tested with PostgreSQL).
checkpassword-ldap searches a specified LDAP directory with a constructed LDAP filter from a given prefix, username, and suffix, and fetches an entry. It then compares a given password with the stored password, and proceeds to run a program as specified if passwords match.
ProSum is a terminal based program that protects your files, sys_call_table, and IDT in a Tripwire-like way (all in user space, without kernel modules). In addition, a database with files could be encrypted with the Blowfish algorithm, and files that are protected can be stored on a secure/bastion host to later replace them. You can disable sys_call_table and IDT support for non-Linux systems. ProSum can run on any UNIX system with file protect mode (without IDT and sys_call_table support). ProSum is designed to run on the Linux x86 platform. This is not neccesary, but is recommended.
