Open Source Tools and Technology Sponsored by Tresys
This Open Source Software site provides a home for
collaborative software development of tools and technology
sponsored by Tresys Technology. Many of the projects originated in
the R&D division at Tresys. Other projects, such as the
Security Enhanced Linux Project,
started elsewhere but are now hosted here.
We invite contributors to be a part of the effort. From the
project list below, choose a project and browse the current
Projects hosted on oss.tresys.com
CDS Framework IDE : an open source IDE that provides an easy-to-use language specifically designed for cross domain solution developers
Certifiable Linux Integration Platform (CLIP) : a toolkit for creating a secure computing environment suitable for hosting U.S. Government applications
Policy Management Server : fine-grained access control and delegation of policy access
Reference Policy : makes it easier to maintain and apply baseline security policy for Security Enhanced Linux (SELinux)
SCC : generating OVAL content just got easier
SELinux Policy IDE (SLIDE) : an open source tool to aid in the development and customization of SELinux policies for applications, services, and other secure Linux based solutions
SETools Policy Analysis Suite : SETools is a suite of open source tools that allow a policy developer or tester to perform detailed analysis and debugging of an SELinux policy
SIPC : Secure one way interprocess communication library for SELinux systems
The SELinux Project: Userspace Development : mandatory access controls for enforcing a wide range of security policies in Linux
Projects hosted on other sites
Tresys contributes to numerous open source projects. Some of these projects started on oss.tresys.com but have moved elsewhere. These moves were the result of community feedback. Folks wanted to see the projects merged into Red Hat's Fedora distribution which we see as a vote of confidence in the software we developed and a chance to ensure broader adoption of the technologies. Please check out our projects at their new online homes.
Other projects we help with in the security community
While we maintain several open source projects we are also contributors to several other projects maintained by other members of the security community.
- SELinux Project - Since 2003 Tresys has been actively contributing to the large the Security-Enhanced Linux project. It is one of our proudest endeavors wherein we participated in maturing a key technology in the Linux space enabling numerous environments to leverage the benefits of this technolgy without the pain typically associated with security.
As an organization focused on the cutting edge we occasionally shelve projects. Sometimes things just don't pan out as we expected. We learn from each and every experience and feel these projects provide value, if only through lessons-learned. They are no longer maintained but since we learned from our experiences we want to share the knowledge with the community so we list them below.
- SELinux Policy Server - This was an effort to create SELinux policy access controls via a meta policy for SELinux policy and a system for managing and deploying policy in a networked environment.
