Late Note. In my haste to get the last entry published I overlooked PIKT, which is an embedded scripting language and accompanying script interpreter.

What does a scripting language have to do with security? It was designed to be an embedded tool for developing monitoring and problem resolution solutions. The Introduction to PIKT fully describes the design philosophy and how to use PIKT to achieve these goals.

Other resources for PIKT include:

You can download PIKT if you feel that it may be useful to your purposes. It is compatible with AIX, Digital UNIX, FreeBSD, GNU/Linux, HP-UX, IRIX, OpenBSD, SCO OpenServer, Solaris and SunOS.

Also see related applications that work with or like PIKT.
