Thursday, April 24, 2014 A sysadmin is entrusted to constantly monitor the system. Sysadmins have to be aware of everything about the system starting from CPU load and network traffic statistics to how much free disk space is available. In addition, things go haywire from time to time, in which case it is better that the sysadmin finds out from the monitoring system than from an user. The following tools come in handy when such a case arrives.

SysAdmin, Random Password Generator, Eraser, OWASP Mantra, Retina Network Community, OpenStego, Freeraser, OpenPuff, Network Security Toolkit, Security Onion




1.Random Password Generator

This form allows you to generate random passwords. The randomness comes from atmospheric noise, which for many purposes is better than the pseudo-random number algorithms typically used in computer programs.

2.Eraser

Eraser is an advanced security tool for Windows which allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns.

3.OWASP Mantra

Mantra is brought to you by OWASP, a free and open software security community focusing on improving the security of software. OWASP Mantra comes with a powerful set of tools. FireCAT integration makes it even more accessible.

4.Retina Network Community

Retina Community gives you powerful vulnerability management across your entire environment. For up to 256 IPs free, Retina Community identifies network vulnerabilities (including zero-day), configuration issues, and missing patches across operating systems, applications, devices, and virtual environments.

5.OpenStego

OpenStego provides two main functionalities- It can hide any data within a cover file (e.g. images), Watermarking files (e.g. images) with an invisible signature. It can be used to detect unauthorised file copying.

6.Freeraser

Destroy files and eliminate any possibility of their restoration with Portable Freeraser. This free files shredder destroys the data you choose before the deletion by filling the actual content of the file according to the predefined method.

7.OpenPuff

OpenPuff is a professional steganography tool, with unique features you won't find among any other free or commercial software. OpenPuff is 100 per cent free and suitable for highly sensitive data covert transmission. Data is split among many carriers. Only the correct carrier sequence enables unhiding. Moreover, up to 256Mb can be hidden, if you have enough carriers at disposal. Last carrier will be filled with random bits in order to make it undistinguishable from others.

8.OpenVAS

OpenVAS is a framework of several services and tools offering a comprehensive and powerful vulnerability scanning and vulnerability management solution. The actual security scanner is accompanied with a daily updated feed of Network Vulnerability Tests (NVTs).

9.Network Security Toolkit

This bootable ISO live CD/DVD (NST Live) is based on Fedora. The toolkit was designed to provide easy access to best-of-breed Open Source Network Security Applications and should run on most x86/x86_64 platforms.

10.Security Onion

Security Onion is a Linux distro for intrusion detection, network security monitoring, and log management. It's based on Ubuntu and contains Snort, Suricata, Bro, OSSEC, Sguil, Squert, Snorby, ELSA, Xplico, NetworkMiner, and many other security tools.
