Projects @ Mindrot.org

Projects and quick hacks that (to some extent) live here include:

Portable OpenSSH
The port of OpenBSD's SSH protocol implementation to other POSIX operating systems (including most Unices and Windows via Cygwin).
A small, fast, secure and featureful NetFlow™ collector daemon. [moved to Google Code]
Cisco NetFlow™ datagram export for OpenBSD's PF packet filter.
A set of makefiles and scripts for building small, customised OpenBSD distributions suitable for running off read-only boot media (especially flash). Based on OpenBSD's install floppy build system.
This is a software implementation of Cisco's NetFlow™ traffic accounting protocol. It collects and tracks traffic flows by listening on a promiscuous interface. Designed for minimal CPU load on busy networks. [moved to Google Code]
Miscellaneous Code
Various other things developed or patched here, including Python modules:
A suite of network traffic monitoring tools, which can write reports in a number of formats. Largely unmaintained.
OpenBSD-related things
Patches and config snippets related to OpenBSD.
SSH Protocol, Tips and Tricks tutorial
In 2002 I was invited to give a tutorial at the Australian Unix Users Group's Winter conference introducing the SSH protocols, the OpenSSH implementation and demonstrating some of the its fundamental and more advanced uses. The slides and the tutorial notes are distributed here in a number of formats which I occasionally update to keep abrest of continuing development.

I have just comitted xobject to CVS. It is a minimal generic type library for C, similar to Python's and Glib's GObject but way simpler and smaller. At present it is only available in CVS, but if it interests you then please mail me and I will consider making a release.

Jakob Schlyter and Rickard Dahlstrand have completed and released flashboot-4.0. This release is based on OpenBSD 4.0 and introduces the new version numbering scheme that directly follows OpenBSD releases. Flashboot binary releases are available, and now include disk images that can be written directly to flash media.
