GNU Generic Security Service Library
Generic Security Service (GSS) is an implementation of the Generic Security Service API (GSSAPI). It is used by network applications to provide security services, such as authenticating SMTP/IMAP, via the GSSAPI SASL mechanism. It consists of a library and a manual, and a Kerberos 5 mechanism that supports mutual authentication and the DES and 3DES ciphers.
Fingerprint Verification System
Fingerprint Verification System is an easy-to-use library that allows programmers to integrate fingerprint technology into their software without specific know-how. It is fast and small, and is great for embedded systems.
ekkoBSD Firewall is a full-featured operating system with security enhancements, a state tracking packet filter, and a NAT firewall. Its features include firewall traffic shaping, an FTP proxy, an authenticating gateway, a complete logging facility, easy management with the administration tool set, IP address pooling (common address redundancy), and a state log daemon.
Figaro's Password Manager
Figaro's Password Manager (FPM) is a GNOME application that allows you to securely store your passwords, which are encrypted with the blowfish algorithm. It allows you to copy passwords or usernames to the clipboard or primary selection. If a password is for a Web site, FPM can keep track of the URLs of your login screens and can automatically launch your browser. You can also teach FPM to launch other applications. FPM can sort your passwords into categories. Finally, it has a password generator that can help you choose good passwords.
pam_usb is a PAM module that enables authentication using a USB storage device (such as a USB pen) through DSA private/public keys. It can be set up to work with any application using PAM, such as your system login (login), your X login (XDM/KDM/GDM), your screensaver (e.g. xscreensaver), and many others. It supports multiple users for the same device, multiple hostnames for the same user, a serial number access list, and private key encryption. It includes usbadm, a tool which helps managing users and keys. In short, you will be able to login by simply plugging in the USB pen and entering your login name.
hsftp is an ftp emulator that provides the look-and-feel of an ftp session, but uses ssh to transport commands and data. hsftp executes UNIX commands on the remote host, and thus will fail on non-Unix remote hosts. If hsftp is not set SUID root, and you have supplied a password/passphrase, it might get paged out to your swap partition during prolonged inactivity. For security, hsftp can be compiled to drop SUID root privileges irrevocably on startup, immediately after locking the memory for the password. For RSA authentication, you can avoid to have hsftp caching the passphrase if you use ssh-agent. In this case, you can use hsftp securely without setting it SUID root. hsftp has been developed on Linux. It is known to compile on a variety of other UNIX flavours (at least FreeBSD, Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX), but may not work on all. Fixes for portability are welcome for inclusion.
Generic Security Service
A bug that prevented 3DES gss_wrap from working in the Kerberos 5 mechanism was fixed. The library headers file now works even when the Kerberos 5 mechanism is disabled. The package has been tested on more platforms.
PAM X509 Authentication Module
This module provides password-less login authentication on local consoles based on X509 certificates and private keys stored on some personal data holders like USB sticks, Bluetooth mobile phones, etc. It currently supports authentication with a user certificate and private key in some auto-mountable location using supermount or automount, such as a USB stick, floppy disk, CD, SD card, etc., or from a Bluetooth device.
sud (superuser daemon) permits a user to switch to root privileges and to use a suid program in a nosuid environment. It is based on a client/server model and on the ability to pass file descriptors between processes. sud permits you to choose your authentication method, and your effective credentials will be checked by using a Unix domain socket.
phpSecureSite is an authorization and session-handling system for Web applications built using PHP and MySQL. It is designed to be highly secure and easy to deploy. It gives newbie Web developers an easy way to add session-handling and authorization to their sites, and provides experienced developers with a trustworthy, functional, and flexible security system.
