  • opensnitch

    OpenSnitch is a GNU/Linux interactive application firewall inspired by Little Snitch.

    Project mention: Safari share menu now violates privacy | | 2023-10-26

    opensnitch has existed for a while now. I've never used it, so I can't comment on how well it works.

  • trio

    Trio – a friendly Python library for async concurrency and I/O

    Project mention: In what ways are channels are better than the traditional await? | /r/golang | 2023-05-18

    Incidentally, the alternative event loop implementation trio in python does not have "gather", you also need channels, and it's a deliberate design choice - there is some discussion about that in this ticket

  • Onboard AI

  • Twisted

    Event-driven networking engine written in Python.

  • curio

    Good Curio!

    Project mention: Ask HN: How can I get better at writing production-level Python? | | 2023-07-18
  • pyzmq

    PyZMQ: Python bindings for zeromq

  • IVRE

    Network recon framework. Build your own, self-hosted and fully-controlled alternatives to Shodan / ZoomEye / Censys and GreyNoise, run your Passive DNS service, collect and analyse network intelligence from your sensors, and much more! Uses Nmap, Masscan, Zeek, p0f, etc.


    Network Automation and Programmability Abstraction Layer with Multivendor support

    Project mention: Anything you wish there was an open source solution for? | /r/selfhosted | 2023-05-16

    OOTB i would say support what you have and use. Abstract controls to public interfaces that would allow people to write their own modules for their own equipment and software. Kind of like how NAPALM does it, but more (if that makes sense).

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • Crossbar - WAMP application router

    Project mention: Is Down (Forever?) | | 2023-08-25
  • gns3-gui

    GNS3 Graphical Network Simulator

    Project mention: Can you create Windows 11 VMs in GNS3? | /r/gns3 | 2023-04-07

    Yes, it's possible. They even have added TPM option support for QEMU nodes.

  • geneva

    automated censorship evasion for the client-side and server-side

    Project mention: What Type of Research Can Bring Value to the Community? | /r/LocalLLaMA | 2023-06-20

    I think cryptography is a decentralizing force in general, though its intersection with ML is small, Also, related things, steganography, differential privacy, federated learning, all things that tend to decentralize. Anonymizing text fingerprint with LLMs, ML-ish censor evading algo , possibility of a decentralized vector database

  • evillimiter

    Tool that monitors, analyzes and limits the bandwidth of devices on the local network without administrative access.

  • requests-ip-rotator

    A Python library to utilize AWS API Gateway's large IP pool as a proxy to generate pseudo-infinite IPs for web scraping and brute forcing.

  • habu

    Hacking Toolkit

  • LDAP3

    a strictly RFC 4510 conforming LDAP V3 pure Python client. The same codebase works with Python 2. Python 3, PyPy and PyPy3

  • wg-meshconf

    WireGuard full mesh configuration generator.

  • pyCraft

    Minecraft-client networking library in Python (by ammaraskar)

  • suzieq

    Using network observability to operate and design healthier networks

  • gns3-server

    GNS3 server

  • diesel

    Greenlet-based event I/O Framework for Python (by dieseldev)

  • trigger

    Trigger is a robust network automation toolkit written in Python that was designed for interfacing with network devices.

  • hyperglass

    hyperglass is the network looking glass that tries to make the internet better.

    Project mention: Hyperglass – the network looking glass that tries to make the internet better | | 2023-09-12
  • picosnitch

    Monitor Network Traffic Per Executable, Beautifully Visualized

    Project mention: Linux runtime security agent powered by eBPF | | 2023-10-19

    Yep, and from my experience too (made a tool that monitors network traffic with eBPF [1]) in addition to those issues there is also a sizable latency hit.


  • p4-learning

    Compilation of P4 exercises, examples, documentation, slides for learning or teaching

    Project mention: Curious about networking | /r/networking | 2023-07-04

    I recommend P4. It is well-maintained, has good tutorials and an active community (practically all of academia in network programming uses it): - - - Intel now closed Tofino (which made P4-programmable chips), but some others are developing P4-capable switches. Others in the tbps area usually use something very similar. It's all very closed off. Broadcom did open access NPL ( once, but it seems they stopped half-way. Their repositories are not maintained at all.
