This is a simple list that I intend to come back and update/edit as we go through the semester. I encourage you to suggest more via the comments below our via a Tweet using #TC2027 and #Tools
- Rescuetime, where is your time going? Fun to look at after about a month of use.
- IP Tables. Setup a firewall on a Linux machine and watch the logs. What traffic is going out and coming in? Why?
- Setup a cheap router with open source firmware like DD-WRT or Tomato
- Port Scanners and Intrusion detection, find your favourite tools but do *not* scan networks without permission.
