9 Excellent Open Source Configuration Management Applications
This software automates the configuration of machines to a particular state. Like any other tools, they are designed to solve specific problems in certain ways. The goal is to get a system from whatever state it is in, into the desired state. Configuration management software are the tools of choice for many system administrators and devops professionals.

  • pam_checkpassword
    pam_checkpassword was written to allow the qmail's pop system to run with RedHat's PAM-based authentication system.
  • pam_csync
    pam_csync is a PAM module to provide roaming home directories for a user session. The authentication module verifies the identity of a user and triggers a synchronization using csync with the server on the first login and the last logout.
  • pam_dotfile
    pam_dotfile is a PAM module which allows users to have more than one password for a single account, each for a different service. This is desirable because many users have objections to using the same password for (as an example) an IMAP4 mailbox and SSH access.
  • pam_imap
    pam_imap is based on the pam_mysql module. It has been modified to use the c-client (IMAP2000) to authenticate remotely using the imap protocol.
  • pam_ldap
    pam_ldap provides the means for Solaris and Linux workstations to authenticate against LDAP directories, and to change their passwords in the directory.
  • pam_mount
    pam_mount is a Pluggable Authentication Module that can mount volumes for a user session.
  • PAM_pkcs#11
    PAM_pkcs#11 is a Linux-PAM login module that allows a X.509 certificate based user login. The certificate and its dedicated private key are thereby accessed by means of an appropriate PKCS #11 module. For the verification of the users' certificates, locally stored CA certificates as well as either online or locally accessible CRLs are used. A very flexible, stackable, and configurable Certificate-To-Login mapping scheme is provided to deduce/verify the username to log in.
  • pam_pwcheck
    a PAM module for password strength checking. It makes additional checks upon password changes, but it doesn't make the change itself. It only provides functionality for one PAM management group: password changing
  • pam_radius_auth
    the PAM RADIUS authentication module. It allows any PAM-capable machine to become a RADIUS client for authentication and accounting requests
  • pam_require
    pam_require is a simple Plugable Authentication Module (PAM) for Linux (and maybe other systems which use PAM). It is an account module that allows you to require a special group or user to access a service.
  • pam_shield
    pam_shield is a PAM module that uses iptables to lock out script kiddies that probe your computer for open logins or easy guessable passwords. pam_shield is meant as an aid to protect public computers on the Internet.
  • pam_smbmount
    a Pluggable Authentication Module for FreeBSD that authenticates users against an SMB server (like Samba) and automatically mounts their home shares
  • pam_smbmount for linux
    Pam_smbmount for linux is a pam module that can be used to mount (and unmount) smb/cifs shares when user is logging in (or logging off). Pam_smbmount has lots of advantages compared with similar pam modules that mount/unmount volumes.
  • pam_ssh_agent
    a PAM module that spawns a ssh-agent and adds identities using the password supplied at login
  • pam_tacplus
    pam_tacplus is a PAM module that supports the following functions: authentication, authorization (account management) & accounting (session management).
  • pam_tally
    pam_tally is a pretty simple module to count logins, optionally refusing login after a given number of failures.
  • pam_usb
    a PAM module that enables authentication using an USB-Storage device (such as an USB Pen) through DSA private/public keys
  • pam_usbauth
    USBauth is a module for PAM allowing end-users to locally authenticate via USB storage devices. USBAuth currently supports user-dependent authentication via password-hashing as well as one-time-password mechanisms, which make the verification process via USB-dongles much more secure. In addition, USBAuth comes with USB device serial checking support, so attackers won't be able to grab and copy your device easily (if this is the case, the device will be rejected).
  • pcdio48-linux
    a client module for pcmcia-cs (Linux), allowing the use of Measurement Computing´s PC-DIO-CARD48 under Linux
  • PHOB
    PCI Helper to Observe Boards: a kernel module that can be used to access registers in arbitrary PCI devices from user space. The device also offers a very simplified mechanism to define interrupt handlers
  • Poldi
    Poldi is a PAM module that implements authentication through the OpenPGP smart card. It uses the smart card daemon from the GnuPG project for smart card access.
  • RapidDisk
    RapidDisk is a Linux RAM disk kernel module like the brd and zram modules, but with a different feature-set.
  • rshaper
    rshaper is a module for network shaping while receiving. Linux-2.0, 2.2, and 2.4.
  • rsuid LSM
    rsuid LSM is a Linux LSM kernel module that allows a user with a specific UID to switch to all users within certain ranges.
  • Saint Jude LKM
    Saint Jude LKM is a Linux kernel module that implements the Saint Jude model for improper privilege transitions. This will permit the discovery of local, and ultimately, remote root exploits during the exploit itself.
  • sch_ooo
    sch_ooo is a queueing discipline that produces out-of-order packets.
  • SDPL
    SDPL is a simple disk partition layer which is highly configurable and tunable. It can be adapted to a wide range of uses, from embedded devices to 64-bit servers.
  • SHFS
    SHell FileSystem Linux kernel module: a simple and easy to use Linux kernel (2.4) module which allows you to mount remote filesystems using plain shell (ssh/rsh) connection. It supports some nice features like number of different caches for access speedup, target system optimisations, etc
  • sptrace
    sptrace is a LKM designed to give administrators more control over the ptrace() call.
  • The Plastic File System
    The Plastic File System is an LD_PRELOAD module for manipulating what the file system looks like for programs. This allows virtual file systems to exist in user space, without kernel hacks or modules.
  • translucency linux kernel module
    translucency linux kernel module installs tweaked syscall handlers that redirect each access for files within a given directory to another one while failed reads (nonexistent overlay files) will cause fallback to the original files thus virtually (logically) merging both directories (possibly being on different medii with different filesystems each).
  • u24mixer-module
    u24mixer-module is a simple module that provides ALSA mixer controls for the ESI U24 USB sound card.
  • unionfs-fuse
    unionfs-fuse is an effort to create a userland unionfs implementation that is probably slower but way more flexible than the current kernel-only based unionfs solution.
  • usbmgr
    usbmgr loads kernel modules according to configuration info in usbmgr.conf when USB devices connect into USB HUB.
  • usbmodules
    an analog to the pcimodules program. It prints the list of kernel modules that are relevant to a particular USB device specified
  • Xtables-addons
    Xtables-addons is a package that mostly supersedes the old patch-o-matic repository for the Linux kernel and iptables. Instead of patching the kernel source, extensions are built as modules and thus allow extending kernels without recompilation.
  • Yin Yang
    Yin Yang detects file opening and passes it to a daemon for action such as logging file transactions, anti-virus checking, and other file activities. Ideal for real-time on-access file scanning.
