EuroOSCON: m0n0wall

Part of the fun of running a conference is stacking the program with things that you want the rest of the world to know about. I just added a session on m0n0wall to EuroOSCON. If you haven't seen m0n0wall yet, you should check it out. It's a sweet little embedded firewall on FreeBSD with some intriguing features, like XML config files and boot-time configuration done via PHP. It's an interesting use of PHP as well as a very powerful firewall (I know of one company that's busy replacing all its CheckPoint firewalls with m0n0wall boxes). It's a fine addition to the Security track, which features heavyhitters like John Viega, Bruce Potter, and Ben Laurie.

Here's something else the world should know about and since your radar hasn't picked it up yet, here's a free toss:

It's called the MouseHole proxy and it was written by Why the lucky stiff, this year's OSCON Rockstar (need I say more?). It's a GreaseMonkey replacement with the advantage that it'll run with any browser (eventually). It's written in Ruby (what isn't these days?) and is thus scriptable in Ruby. Also checkout hoodwink'd on the same site - it uses MouseHole to to create an overlay over the web so you can add comments to websites that currently do not allow them.
