Big Brother is a combination of monitoring methods. Unlike SNMP where information is just collected and devices polled, Big Brother is designed in such a way that each local system broadcasts its own information to a central location. Simultaneously, Big Brother also polls all networked systems from a central location. This creates a highly efficient and redundant method for proactive network monitoring.
Yin Yang is a real-time Linux file scanner that is activated whenever a file is accessed. When a file opening system call is detected, it will send the full pathname of the file to a network daemon. The network daemon will then pass the pathname of the file to a file scanner, such as an anti-virus scanner, and return the status. The status will then be reported back to the network daemon, and the response will be passed back to the system call. The default action logs a message to the system logger. The file scanner is wrapped with the original file opening system call, so it will open the file normally after the file scanning.
System Garden Habitat
Habitat is a performance management system which captures, stores, and visualises table-based time series data. Monitor probes exist for Linux and Solaris with Windows coming soon. It has a command line interface, a fast GUI client for graphical visualisation, and a simple format for extending data capture in the agent. It is written in C with Gtk and can access data from its peers directly, by file sharing, or with the use of a separate central archiving repository (harvest) to scale to installations of significant size.
CheckPoint FW1 VPN Tools (fw1vpntools)
fw1vpntools is a set of some nifty little helpers which can be used for monitoring and maintaining a VPN which is terminated with CheckPoint VPN-1 Firewalls.
ShoStats is a reimplementation of phpSysInfo in Perl, useful for running from crontab and outputting the stats to a PHP include file, which can then be displayed on a hosting account. It is also more modular and configurable, including modules to support both Linux and OpenBSD, an output module for PHP include files, and transfer modules for output to stdout (which can be redirected or piped) and uploading to an FTP server.
Aware is a high performance distributed event processing framework built for systems management. It comes with probes for common network services and system resources. Additionally, Aware allows the cross-correllation of many different streams of information, and includes a Web-based reporting interface.
Metacortex OpenBSD PF Toolbox
Metacortex consists of a PF graphical user interface. Built on the proactively secure OpenBSD operating system, and featuring an HTML based graphic interface for easy monitoring.
Login Anomaly Detection System
The Login Anomaly Detection System (LADS) detects anomalies in logins and logouts and is able to perform various actions in response.
Enforcer is a Linux security module designed to help improve integrity of a computer running Linux. The Enforcer provides a subset of Tripwire-like functionality. It runs continuously and as each protected file is opened its SHA1 is calculated and compared to a previously stored value. The Enforcer is designed to integrate with TCPA hardware to provide a secure boot when booted with a TCPA enabled boot loader. TCPA hardware can protect secrets and other sensitive data (for example, the secrets for an encrypted loopback file system) and bind those secrets to specific software.
TestMaker delivers a rich environment for building and running intelligent test agents that test Web-enabled applications for scalability, functionality, and performance. It comes with a friendly graphical user environment, an object-oriented scripting language (Jython) to build intelligent test agents, an extensible library of protocol handlers (HTTP, HTTPS, SOAP, XML-RPC, SMTP, POP3, IMAP), a new agent wizard featuring an Agent Recorder to write scripts for you, a library of fully-functional sample test agents, and shell scripts to run test agents from the command line and from unit test utilities.
