Software / Tools

 

Open Software by WYAE usually did not start as big project but clever collections of tiny, sometimes even simple tools that measurably ease the expert's work.

Sometimes the small tools simply stay just that - but sometimes they grow into fully fledged software suites, like e.g. FW1Rules or its successor, the FWdoc firewall documentation system.

Please refer to a separate page for support and licenses.

 

Current Tools and Programs

localsendmail
localsendmail is intended to allow delivery of local mails (e.g. system messages, cron results, etc.) to a single local "account" especially on personal workstations and laptops, where a full-scale maile like postfix is overkill and smarthost-forwarders like ssmtp don't work as network is not always available/online.

l.p.a.a. (rc5 2014-02-18)
A messaging system designed to be resilient against content and communication network analysis, network failure or blockade.

MoSShE 16.4.24
MoSShE (MOnitoring in Simple SHell Environment) is a simple, lightweight (both in size and system requirements) server monitoring package designed for secure and in-depth monitoring of a handful of typical/critical internet systems.

Passwordifier
Theoretically you'd need an "endlessly" long password to be protected against brute force guessing attacks. Practically this is very hard for the average human. Additionally you should use a different password for each and every system and login you are using. That noone can memorize any more.
And here the Passwordifier helps...

redetimer v15.11.20
In parliamentary discussions you often have time contingents for speeches of teh different factions. So here a simple JavaScript-based tool to track those.

Reportel v11.07.30
ReporTel - create podcasts by simply calling your AVM Fritz!Box from your (cell)phone.

Thekla v12.8.29
Thekla is a web spider/crawler designed to aid web application security tests. It extracts paramter-containing URLs and forms. The result are text and CSV files, listing the URLs of dynamic web pages and their referers.

VENEv (12.9.18) for Nessus 4.2 and newer
VENEv (Volker's & Enno's Nessus Evaluation) will extract a re-sortable overview as CSV table from a Nessus .NESSUS file (starting with Nessus version 4.2), speeding up security assessments.

Program / Projects hosted on Github

Auphonicast
This automatically creates podcast web page and feed from Auphonic provided files, so you do not need to do any work besides provisioning Auphonic.

Programs no longer actively developed

Software in this section no longer is actively developed by me. Sometimes necessity is no longer given (e.g. ReadConfig), sometimes I just moved on and have no more need to use the software myself.

Firewall Tools
Among these abandoned / outdated / superseded tools are the documentation classics like FW1Rules, ReadConfig, ASLrules, or converters like Raptor2Ckp, FW2tux, PFconf.
Most have been superseded by the FWdoc toolset.

Other Stuff
Various tools, webstuff I no longer maintain. Just peek in if you are interested.
