Open Source File Transfer

24. WinSCP Replaces CuteFTP, FTP Commander

This utility makes it easy to transfer files using SFTP or SCP. It also includes a fairly basic file manager and FTP transfer capabilities. However, this is a file transfer client only—you can download files, but not set up your own FTP server. Operating System: Windows.

25. FileZilla Replaces CuteFTP, FTP Commander

FileZilla transfers files via FTP, SFTP and FTPS. Unlike WinSCP, it also includes a (Windows-only) server version so you can set up your own secure file transfer server. Operating System: Windows, Linux, OS X.

Open Source Forensics

26. ODESSA Replaces EnCase Forensics, X-ways Forensics, AccessData Forensic Toolkit

Short for "Open Digital Evidence Search and Seizure Architecture," ODESSA, incorporates a variety of tools for collecting and analyzing digital evidence. While the project hasn't been updated in a while, the tools continue to be helpful for analyzing Internet Explorer cookies and Windows files. Operating System: Windows, Linux, OS X.

27. The Sleuth Kit/Autopsy Browser Replaces EnCase Forensics, X-ways Forensics, AccessData Forensic Toolkit

This project offers a more robust set of forensic tools that run from the command line (The Sleuth Kit) or through a browser interface (Autopsy Browser). Both provide the user with detailed information about file systems, including deleted data. Operating System: Windows, Linux, OS X.

Open Source Gateway/Unified Threat Management Appliances

28. Endian Firewall Community Replaces Check Point Security Gateways, McAfee Unified Threat Management (UTM) Firewall , SonicWall, Symantec Web Gateway

The Community version of Endian Firewall transforms any PC (even a pretty old one) into a Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance that protects your network with a firewall, anti-virus, spam filtering, application level protection, content filtering, a VPN, and more. If you prefer, you can also buy a pre-configured hardware appliance that is based on the same open-source software. Operating System: Linux.

29. Untangle Replaces Check Point Security Gateways, McAfee Unified Threat Management (UTM) Firewall , SonicWall, Symantec Web Gateway

Untangle combines threat protection, network monitoring, and Web filtering capabilities into a single package. You can choose the open source package, one of several paid packages that include support, or you can download the open source virus blocker, spam blocker, firewall, Web filter, and other pieces separately. Operating System: Linux.

30. ClearOS Replaces Check Point Security Gateways, McAfee Unified Threat Management (UTM) Firewall , SonicWall, Symantec Web Gateway

Developed by Clear Foundation, ClearOS's goal is to "ensure that every small organization and distributed IT environment on the globe can have proper security, filtration, and management tools." It includes anti-spam, anti-virus, VPN, and all the other features you'd expect, and it comes with an easy-to-use Web interface. Operating System: Linux.

31. NetCop UTM Replaces Check Point Security Gateways, McAfee Unified Threat Management (UTM) Firewall , SonicWall, Symantec Web Gateway

Available as either a free open source download for up to five concurrent users or in an enterprise version for unlimited users, NetCop offers the same functions as Endian and Untangle and the commercial UTMs. However, it is not available as a pre-configured appliance. Operating System: Linux.

Open Source Intrusion Detection

32. Open Source Tripwire Replaces Tripwire

In 2000, the owners of the popular Tripwire intrusion detection and file integrity monitoring software released their source code. Although Tripwire has since become a commercial, closed source application, this app is based on the original Tripwire code. It alerts systems administrators when changes have been made to specific files on their networks. Operating System: Windows, Linux.

33. AFICK Replaces Tripwire

Specifically designed to provide similar functionality as Tripwire, AFICK (short for "Another File Integrity Checker") also alerts administrators to changes on systems connected to the network. Operating System: Windows, Linux.

Open Source Network Firewalls

34. IPCop Replaces Barricuda NG Firewall, Check Point Appliances

Instead of buying a firewall appliance, you can make your own with IPCop and an old PC. Note that while IPCop does provide a firewall for your network, it does not include anti-virus and some of the other features of the commercial product. Operating System: Linux.

35. Devil-Linux Replaces Barricuda NG Firewall, Check Point Appliances

Like IPCop, Devil-Linux also allows users to turn old hardware into a network firewall. It also lacks the anti-virus protection common in commercial appliances, but this project lets you use the system that is running the firewall as a secure server for a variety of applications. Operating System: Linux.

36. Turtle Firewall Replaces Barricuda NG Firewall, Check Point Appliances

Like the other tools in this category, Turtle Firewall makes it possible to create your own Linux-based network firewall. Based on Iptables, it offers a Web GUI that makes defining firewall elements and selecting services easy, or if you prefer, you can edit the XML files directly. Operating System: Linux.

37. Shorewall Replaces Barricuda NG Firewall, Check Point Appliances

Shorewall (a.k.a. "Shoreline Firewall") can be used as a network firewall, as a gateway/router/server, or to protect a standalone Linux system. While it may not be the most intuitive tool for configuring Iptables to create your own firewall, it is very powerful and flexible. Operating System: Linux.

38. Sentry Firewall Replaces Barricuda NG Firewall

When installed on a PC attached to your network, Sentry Firewall acts as a network firewall, secure server, and/or intrusion detection system. Like Devil-Linux it also boots from a CD. Operating System: Linux.

39. Vuurmuur Replaces Barricuda NG Firewall

This is yet another Iptables-based Firewall, this time designed to be very easy to use. It also enables remote administration via SSH. Operating System: Linux.

40. Vyatta Replaces Cisco products

Vyatta offers router, firewall, and VPN products so similar to Cisco products, that the Web site even contains a handy comparison tool. In addition to the "core" open source software download, the company also sells software subscriptions and hardware based on the open source product. Operating System: Linux.
