Alaya Webdav Server 1.2.0

Mon, 07/04/2014 - 2:11am
Alaya is a primitive chrooting Web server with basic WebDAV support. It can serve HTTPS and HTTP, and can authenticate using PAM, /etc/shadow, /etc/passwd, or using its own authentication files that allow for 'native' users that only have access to alaya content. It's intended to be a simple method of sharing content over WebDAV, and though it can be configured with a config file, it's easy to configure by command-line switches alone. Alaya always chroots to ensure that malicious users can't use '..' within a URL to access unintended documents, and that users can't accidentally leave documents in places outside of the chroot. It has a 'ChHome' mode that chroots users into their home directory and serves content from there. It supports .cgi scripts out of a trusted path (so not from within the chrooted WebDAV share) and read-only shared directories that are outside of the chroot (allowing access to shared content when in ChHome mode).

Release Notes: IPv6 support has been added. Support for the Linux 'sendfile' syscall has been added for lower CPU usage when transferring files with plain HTTP. Capabilities support has been added (most capabilities are dropped on program startup).

Multi-OTP 4.2.4.1

Sun, 06/04/2014 - 9:53pm
Multi-OTP is an OATH-certified PHP class, a Web interface, and a powerful command line tool that can be used to authenticate and manage OTP user tokens for strong two-factor authentication. It can create, update, and delete tokens to authenticate users with one time passwords (OTP). The users' data are stored in files. The class can also check the user token using several algorithms: Mobile OTP (MOTP), OATH/HOTP (RFC 4226), and OATH/TOTP HOTP Time Based (RFC 4226 extension). It works with compatible software tokens (iPhone, Android, PalmOS, Nokia, and other Java J2ME capable phones) and hardware tokens (such as Feitian, ZyXEL, Authenex, or Seamoon). The multiotp command line utility is also provided, both in "compiled" form (for Windows) and in source code (for Linux or educational purpose). The multiotp command line can be combined with FreeRADIUS (under Linux) or the free TekRADIUS LT (under Windows) in order to have a powerful radius strong authentication server.

Release Notes: This release has a new -user-info option, the ability to import tokens defined in a CSV file, to display the NT_KEY for further handling by FreeRADIUS (like ntlm_auth), more than 60 QA tests, and better MySQL support with mysqli library support.

Seed7 2014-04-06

Sun, 06/04/2014 - 6:55pm
Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.

Release Notes: The chapters in the manual about primitive actions and the foreign function interface have been improved. The names of C types and the elements of unions have been refactored to use camel case. The library bigint.s7i has been changed to define the operators radix and RADIX with actions. Testcases for the operators radix and RADIX have been added to chkbig.sd7. The compiler has been improved to do an optimization for the action INT_MDIV when the divisor is known at compile time. In traceutl.c the function mapTraceFlags has been improved to work correctly when several options are defined.
