Tools
The Rogue Wireless Access Point Site Survey Triangulator provides an alternative to walk-about tools and expensive installed infrastructure-based tools.

Windows security analysis is repetative and time consuming. The Windows Security Tool (now part of ThreeShield Information Security) does the work for you.

Unix, Solaris, AIX, and Linux security analysis is repetative and time consuming. The Unix Security Tool (now part of ThreeShield Information Security) does the work for you.

This NIST Special Publication 800-63 password policy compliance checker spreadsheet helps to determine if password policies comply with the Electronic Authentication Guideline. Feel free to use it to test your own systems. If you like it, please donate to the development fund.

This little 84KB program from 2002 called Text Cleaner, is presently in use on over 15,470 computers and is still receiving accolades for its user interface and ease of use.
