- If you are a broadband or dial-up user who doesn't have a firewall script, you need to get one to protect yourself. AutoFW is intended to help you do that with no hassles. Many people when connecting to the internet need a firewall script made for them so they can surf the net without being susceptible to various attacks. Most, if not all (until now :-), of the existing scripts are written for a large range of requirements and require some tweaking to make them work for a specific user. However many users do not know which parameters to fill in the script config file. AutoFW intends to provide a simple firewall script that you just need to fire and forget. You make sure to run it on computer start-up or just before connecting to the net, and it will detect network condition and setup appropriate firewall rules for you. In order to be "smart" AutoFW has to be limited, the current scope of AutoFW are standard broadband connections, it will also cover dial-up users and stand-alone servers.
- bitwarden-ruby is a server application for storing credentials, especially web-based login details. It includes an independent API reference. Compatible browser plugins can retrieve and fill in login credentials based on the current URL. bitwarden-ruby is a replacement for bitwarden-core, a freely licensed server application with a non-free dependency (the SQL Server database).
- BleachBit deletes unnecessary files to free valuable disk space, maintain privacy, and remove junk. It removes cache, Internet history, temporary files, cookies, and broken shortcuts.
Some common uses include:
- Free disk space
- Reduce the size of backups and the time to create them by removing unnecessary files
- Maintain privacy
- Improve system performance (by vacuuming your browser's database, for example)
- Prepare whole disk images for compression (common for "ghost" backups and virtual machines) by wiping free disk space
- Briar is a messaging app designed for activists, journalists, and anyone else who needs a safe, easy and robust way to communicate. Unlike traditional messaging apps, Briar doesn't rely on a central server - messages are synchronized directly between the users' devices. If the internet's down, Briar can sync via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, keeping the information flowing in a crisis. If the internet's up, Briar can sync via the Tor network, protecting users and their relationships from surveillance.
- 'bup' is a patch for bash that modifies the shell to send all user keystrokes via UDP over the network for collection by a sniffer or a syslogd server. It does not depend on syslogd to send the packets.
- Chameleon Addon
- Chameleon is a WebExtension port of the popular Firefox addon Random Agent Spoofer. The UI is near identical and contains most of the features found in the original extension.
- ChangePassword modifies the passwords of passwd, Samba, and Squid through the Web. All passwords are syncronized and changed in real time over a browser like Mozilla, Netscape, IE, Opera, and others.
- Cjdns implements an encrypted IPv6 network using public key cryptography for address allocation and a distributed hash table for routing. This provides near zero-configuration networking without many of the security and robustness issues that regular IPv4 and IPv6 networks have. Hyperboria is the largest cjdns network, with hundreds of active nodes around the world.
- Clipperz is a web based password manager. Local encryption within the browser guarantees that no one except you can read your data. With Clipperz you can quickly login to websites, as well as organize and store logins and any confidential data.
- Conversations is a Jabber/XMPP client for Android 4.0+ smartphones that has been optimized to provide a unique mobile experience. A port to iOS is envisaged in the medium-term future. Conversations allows you to easily send images, show if your contact has received and read your message, permit dynamic history and handles multiple devices (especially sync with desktop clients), allow you to create group chats and support one-to-one Audio/Video calls ! And thanks to the XMPP Protocol (that is a push protocol) you battery life is safe. Conversations also does not require a Google Account or specifically Google Cloud Messaging (GCM). Using the XMPP federated protocol, you can freely choose a trustworthy server (your own if you want) for yourself while still chatting with contacts that are using other servers. The communication between Conversations and the XMPP server as well as the communication between the individual servers is TLS encrypted. This way, not only your messages are safe but more importantly it is impossible for an outside attacker to intercept your meta data (with whom you are chatting) without attacking your server first. On top of that, Conversations gives you the choice to enable one of two end-to-end encryption mechanisms. The first one is OMEMO, a state of the art multi-end-to-multi-end encryption method which is very easy to setup and gives you forward secrecy and plausible deniability. For backwards compatibility reasons Conversations also supports OpenPGP. F-droid version: Installing the F-Droid client to get the app and timely app update notifications is highly recommended by the developers.
