The Dazuko project provides a virtual device driver allowing (userland) applications to execute online file access control. It was originally developed by Avira GmbH (formerly known as H+BEDV Datentechnik GmbH) to allow on-access virus scanning. Other uses include a file-access monitor/logger or external security tools. Dazuko operates by intercepting file access calls and passing the file information to a userland application. The application then has the opportunity to tell the virtual device driver to allow or deny the file access. The application also receives information about the file access event, such as accessed file name, type of access, process id, and user id.

Linice is a source-level kernel debugger for x86 systems with the look and feel of SoftIce for MS Windows. It is designed for people who are already familiar with SoftIce, but anyone can quickly get used to it. It can break into a running kernel at any time using a hotkey and supports breakpoints and single step on modules, the kernel, or user programs. It supports the VGA frame buffer, the X Window System, serial connections, and monochrome adapters.

HelenOS is a microkernel-based multiserver operating system designed from scratch. By decomposing the operating system functionality into tens of isolated but intensively communicating userspace servers, it provides a computing environment that has several virtues such as flexibility, increased robustness, well defined explicit interfaces, and smaller complexity of individual components. HelenOS does not aim to be another clone of Unix or some other legacy system and is not POSIX-compliant (even though it may seem POSIX-similar at times). Instead, the goal has been to design it according to what is the most elegant and right thing to do. What makes HelenOS unique among the other multiserver operating systems is its multiplatform and multiprocessor microkernel. It will run on seven different processor architectures ranging from a 32-bit uniprocessor little-endian ARMv4 to a 64-bit multicore big-endian UltraSPARC T1.

Mail2sh makes it possible to carry out shell commands by email. Email is sent to a particular user on your host and the commands will be carried out if the user and password given matches ones in /etc/passwd. Commands are executed with the user's privileges, and combined with a PGP module ensures a certain level of security for use. Note that the system is not natively encrypted, so use of an encryption mechanism is highly recommended for security reasons.

The system call tracker is a Linux kernel module and supporting user space applications which allow interception of and possibly taking action upon system calls that match user-defined criteria. It allows you to set such rules as "tell me when someone tries to open /etc/passwd" and "if user '500' tries to connect to the network, fail the system call". It can also be thought of as strace on steroids.

Bastard is virtual server oriented patchset, containing essential elements for building virtual server container machines. It includes a CTX-VS patch, squashfs for creating a small template server, lufs and bme for easily creating overlayed filesystems on top of the template, and honeynet- inspired extensions to enhance monitoring of hosted servers. It also includes VPN extensions like OpenSWAN, MPPE, and CIPE to enable direct access to hosted virtual servers in situations where IPs are scarce.

BlueZ is Bluetooth protocol stack for Linux. It provides supports for core Bluetooth layers and protocols, and has flexible, efficient, and modular architecture. It has many interesting features, like support for multiple Bluetooth devices, multithreaded data processing, hardware abstraction, and standard socket interface to all layers. BlueZ is part of the official Linux kernel (since 2.4.6).

DragonFly belongs to the same class of operating systems as other BSD-derived systems and Linux. It is based on the same Unix ideals and APIs and shares ancestor code with other BSD operating systems. DragonFly is differentiated from other operating systems in its class by, among others, the HAMMER file system, Virtual Kernels, swapcache, and the pervasive use of soft token locks. DragonFly provides an opportunity for the BSD base to grow in an entirely different direction from the ones taken in the FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD series.

cpulimit is a simple program that attempts to limit the CPU usage of a process (expressed in percentage, not in CPU time). This is useful to control batch jobs when you don't want they eat too much CPU. It does not act on the nice value or other scheduling priority details, but on the real CPU usage. Also, it is able to adapt itself to the overall system load, dynamically and quickly.
