This is a repost from my personal website Ulyaoth

This month we have chosen for the following:
*
angr
* Brakeman
* Moloch
* OSXCollector
* Zeek

angr

Information from the angr website:

angr is a python framework for analyzing binaries. It combines both static and dynamic symbolic (“concolic”) analysis, making it applicable to a variety of tasks.

Brakeman

Information from the Brakeman website:

Brakeman is a security scanner for Ruby on Rails applications. Unlike many web security scanners, Brakeman looks at the source code of your application. This means you do not need to set up your whole application stack to use it. Once Brakeman scans the application code, it produces a report of all security issues it has found.

Moloch

Information from the Moloch website:

Moloch augments your current security infrastructure to store and index network traffic in standard PCAP format, providing fast, indexed access. An intuitive and simple web interface is provided for PCAP browsing, searching, and exporting. Moloch exposes APIs which allow for PCAP data and JSON formatted session data to be downloaded and consumed directly. Moloch stores and exports all packets in standard PCAP format, allowing you to also use your favorite PCAP ingesting tools, such as wireshark, during your analysis workflow.

Zeek

Information from the Zeek website:

Zeek is a powerful network analysis framework that is much different from the typical IDS you may know. While focusing on network security monitoring, Zeek provides a comprehensive platform for more general network traffic analysis as well. Well grounded in more than 20 years of research, Zeek has successfully bridged the traditional gap between academia and operations since its inception. Today, it is relied upon operationally by both major companies and numerous many educational and scientific institutions for securing their cyberinfrastructure.
