arudius

Arudius is an information assurance (IA) Linux live CD with tools for penetration testing and vulnerability analysis. Information assurance has many other aspects besides network security. However, it seems that the mainstream public identifies information assurance primarily with securing network-enabled systems, so we decided to go with the mainstream and call Arudius a tool for information assurance. The CD consists of a Zenwalk Linux base on top of which a large collection of network security testing software (full list) has been installed - including tools listed on Insecure.org Top 75 list plus many other tools listed on Freshmeat, Sf.net and other information assurance sites around the world.

netbsd tools

In addition to the information assurance live CD we also release a number of tools based on NetBSD. Why based on NetBSD? Because contrary to the popular opinion, NetBSD is not some obscure BSD flavor that is only good for powering your toaster, but is a powerful, rock-solid, secure and highly portable operating system that managed to break some records. In many aspects it is better than its more famous cousins and is also very well suited for the purposes of information assurance.

polyBSD

polyBSD is a "multi"-purpose (hence "poly") framework for building embedded systems that address certain aspects of information assurance. Essentially, it is a minimalistic install of NetBSD (i386) designed to run from a 256MB flash card or USB memory stick. Read the "polyBSD" section of this file for more information.

pocketSAN

pocketSAN uses polyBSD as a basis and builds on top of that to provide a functional, secure and completely free NAS/SAN solution with RAID and encrypted virtual disk support that can fit in your shirt pocket. Thus it can be used to address the data at-rest aspect of information assurance. Read the "pocketSAN" section of this file with instruction on how to set up your NAS/SAN. Here is also a list of all packages installed on pocketSAN.
