Endian Firewall Community is a "turn-key" linux security distribution that turns every system into a full featured security appliance. The software has been designed with "usability in mind" and is very easy to install, use and manage, without losing its flexibility. The features include a stateful packet inspection firewall, application-level proxies for various protocols (HTTP, FTP, POP3, SMTP) with antivirus support, virus and spamfiltering for email traffic (POP and SMTP), content filtering of Web traffic and a "hassle free" VPN solution (based on OpenVPN). The main advantage of Endian Firewall is that it is a pure "Open Source" solution that is sponsored by Endian.

'''Nessus'''
'''Nessus'''
Besides getting the best out of well known open source tools, some of which are quickly described below these lines, ossim provides a strong correlation engine, detailed low, mid and high level visualization interfaces as well as reporting and incident managing tools, working on a set of defined assets such as hosts, networks, groups and services. All this information can be limited by network or sensor in order to provide just the needed information to specific users allowing for a fine grained multi-user security environment. Also, the ability to act as an IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) based on correlated information from virtually any source result in a useful addition to any security professional.

'''PreludeIDS'''
'''PreludeIDS'''
Prelude is an Hybrid IDS framework, that is, it is a product that enable all available security application, be it open source or proprietary, to report to a centralized system. In order to achieve this task, Prelude relies on the IDMEF (Intrusion Detection Message Exchange Format) IETF standard, that enables different kinds of sensors to generate events using an unified language. Prelude benefits from its ability to find traces of malicious activity from different sensors (Snort, honeyd, Nessus Vulnerability Scanner, Samhain, over 30 types of systems logs, and many others) in order to better verify an attack and in the end to perform automatic correlation between the various events.
