    Favorite Linux Security Programs


    I'm wondering what your favorite security programs in Linux are.

    Here's some of mine...

    Ethereal
    Nmap
    Nessus
    Portsentry
    Snort


    I know I missed a ton but I'm just courious to see what others think.

    wow, its like the crackers toolkit, i use airsnort, not malicously, but it can be handy in those coffe shops. nmap is my ultimate in network security, i scan with it all the time.

    gcc and patch ;)

    I don't really much use 'security programs'; I'm more into transparent security. I use PaX and SSP, as noted in another post ( http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=22604 ).

    I guess because of PaX breaking things on x86, and having to remove PaX restrictions, I'll have to say. . .

    chpax
    paxctl
    cat pax-linux-2.6.7.patch | patch -p1
    gcc -fstack-protector -fPIC -pie

    nmap I use for network checking to see wtf port cups was supposed to use
