Network Security Application of the Year
 
We broke Security Application of the Year into Network and Host this year (yes, some are borderline).

Really should include psad in this list, there's a few other tools as well that might qualify to replace some of the borderline listed above:

another missing
 
I don't use it, but I think kmyfirewall (homepage) is worth adding to this list. It can be used both by pros (graphical iptables tool) and users (simple click-and-use tool). Thanks.

you miss those two for OS fingerprinting:

(passive) p0f: http://freshmeat.net/projects/p0f/

What about smoothwall - http://www.smoothwall.org

archtoad6 01-02-2008 07:50 AM

Or its fork IPCop, or perhaps m0n0wall (BSD based), or any of the other make-a-boat-anchor-into-a-perimeter-firewall-appliance distros.

trickykid 01-03-2008 10:33 AM

My vote is for psad, not on the list.

jag2000 01-03-2008 12:22 PM

i didnt see pf sense either. but its not really an app its more of a distro

esaym 01-03-2008 02:48 PM

might as well add ettercap and add a whole new poll for the firewall distros and routers (smoothwall, ipcop, pfsense, linksys wrt54gl, monowall, ect)

I'm in complete agreement here.

I'll throw in another plug for IPCop.
Although perhaps it is better considered a distribution?

I dont know if this is the right place to post this, but Avast! is my trusted anti-virus. However, the only thing it has found on my system are windows viruses. :D

My network is protected by pf (the OpenBSD PacketFilter), though a lot of these like Wireshark and ClamAv, are really good tools as well.

drokmed 01-09-2008 12:14 AM

Shorewall. Complex configs made easy from the command line.

pfsense is great too, quick install, noob friendly.

I use Slax 0.6 pre-release with Clam, Klam and updated database package I made myself.

Ever since I scan my customer's PCs offline and hit more positives than with pro tools.
the caveat is I have to erase manually...

With the trends or infection rates and frequencies, i believe that Clam project deserves more public exposure and support up until the point the all known malware-receptive OS becomes insignificant part of the market.

My vote goes to Clam this year.
Anti viral companies, I f You red this - make more free editions (trade feed back for support) - or perish.
