Client for Kascade, a distributed Open directory search-engine Kascade is a novel type of search-engine, based on the Open directory principle. This means that anyone can structure a small part of the information on the internet, corresponding to their personal interests or expertise. The resulting parts are placed in a large categorical structure that others can browse to search for information. Examples of Open Directory initiatives are Dmoz and Infomarker. In contrast with other Open Directory initiatives, though, the parts that people maintain now reside on their own server. What results is a distributed Open Directory! As with Gnutella, though, there are no fixed central servers. This implies that anyone can start a new structure. Actually any piece can be easily replaced, hopefully leading to competitive improvement. The distributed nature and lack of central control facilities make for a system immune to company or government control, much like Gnutella and the Internet itself. From Debian 3.0r0 APT

An authentication standard. History: Developed at MIT in the 1980s as part of its project Athena (the netpc product that also spawned X Windows and other technologies). Kerberos has long been available as an add-on to virtually all UNIX systems. Version 4 was discovered to be insecure, and was followed by version 5. Microsoft implemented a variant of version 5 in Win2k. Key point: Microsoft's implementation in Win2k is not quite standard in much the same way that its implementations of PPP, PPTP, IPsec, etc. all make use of proprietary extensions. Kerberos: DES From Hacking-Lexicon


Part of an operating system that implements the interaction with hardware and the sharing of resources.


The core of the operating system. The kernel has complete control over everything that happens. When your computer crashes, it means the kernel has crashed. If only a single program crashes but the rest of the system remains running, then the kernel itself hasn't crashed. The kernel is designed to coordinate among the different components of the operating system, such as disk drive, networking, keyboard, and running programs. Key point: The kernel is responsible for security, preventing one program from one user from breaking into other programs running on the same system. All systems except the older Mac and Windows do not provide this level of security. Key point: The kernel itself does not interact with the user. For example, the word "Linux" really means just the kernel. What we see in Linux distributions is actually the kernel plus a whole bunch of UNIX-like applications built on top of it. Contrast: There are two modes your software might be running in. Kernel mode is running within the context of the kernel itself, and describes not only the kernel but also device drivers. User mode is the context the rest of the software runs in. The key point is that when you are running in kernel mode, you've got access to the entire system and nobody can stop you. However, when you are running in user mode (especially when not logged in as root), then the kernel imposes security on your activity. This means that if you break into a normal HTTP server, you may not actually be able to break into the entire machine. However, newer versions of the Linux kernel are putting things like HTTP servers into the kernel itself (for performance reasons). An exploitable flaw in such services will allow the entire machine to be compromised. From Hacking-Lexicon

In cryptography, the value needed to encrypt and/or decrypt something. It is usually a number or a short string less than 20 characters long. Contrast: People are confused as to the difference between a key and a password. A key is a large number whereas a password is simply a series of letters (and possibly digits and punctuation). Since cryptography only uses keys, the password is generally converted to a number through the use of an appropriate mathematical function, like a hash. Public/private keys present a special difficulty in that they contain extremely large, unwieldy numbers that are protected by a separate password. Contrast: There are two types of keys: symmetric keys use the same key for both encryption and decryption asymmetric (aka. public/private key) are produced in pairs, where one key encrypts, but a mirror key must be used to decrypt the message, and somebody with one key cannot figure out the other key. Contrast: A common question deals with the difference between 40-bit and 128-bit encryption in web browsers like Netscape. The answer is that the most obvious way to break the encryption and read the plain text is to simply try all possible keys. A 40-bit key has roughly one trillion (1,000,000,000,000) combinations. It could take your computer several weeks to try all these combinations. The implication: the average person only needs a few weeks to decrypt any message you send across the wire with a 40-bit browser, should they manage to sniff it from the wire. Every extra bit of key length means the key will take twice as long to crack. Therefore, if a system takes one week to crack a 40-bit key, it will take two weeks to crack a 41-bit key. Therefore, a 128-bit key will take 2^(128-40) times longer to crack than a 40-bit key (i.e. 309,485,009,821,345,068,724,781,056 times longer). Example: The following table shows the relative difficulty in cracking keys (circa year 2000). Bits Difficulty 8 paper and pencil (puzzle appears in Sunday paper) 16 tiny computer 32 your desktop computer 40 a few computers and a fair amount of time 56 custom hardware 64 distributed.net (a hundred thousand machine cranking away for a couple of years) 80 government agencies (NSA, CIA) 128 not crackable at the current time 256 quantum computers Key point: Moore's Law breaks all cryptosystems, eventually. This, and only this, is why DES has become obsolete. Note: 40-bit and 128-bit keys mean the RC4 algorithm used within web-browsers to talk to web servers via SSL. The U.S. restricts export of all software whose keys are greater than 40-bits in order to be able to spy on foreigners (ostensibly only in a military engagement). Key point: You can classify keys according to their lifetimes: In PKI, "session keys" are randomly generated and last only the lifetime of the connection. The public/private keys are used to exchange them so that people eavesdropping on the wire cannot figure out what they are. Longer term keys are often based upon a hash of a password and are explicitly generated by the user. An example would be a user who encrypts a file with a key. Key point: The Kerckhoff principle states that cryptography should be based upon the assumption that the enemy will discover all the details of your system. Therefore, all the security of the system should be held within the key. Not only that, the idea is that the details of the system should be actively published and publicized in the hopes that people will analyze the system, discover them, and publish the weaknesses before the enemy gets a chance to. All the best cryptosystems have been well published and analyzed in public forums. From Hacking-Lexicon


KDE keyboard LED applet KeybLED is a Panel applet which displays a keyboard's LED status. It is particulary useful for keyboards which lack their own LED status indicators (e.g. cordless keyboards), or just for the fun! It utilizes the XTest X-server extension of keyboard indicator state changes. Features: * Configurable LED size, shape, look, colour, LED orientation (vertical/ horizontal), label size and label location (left/right, top/bottom, hidden); * Ability to select which LEDs are displayed; * Ability to turn on or off LEDs on startup; * An LED's status can be toggled with the mouse; * Clicking on the applet pops up an indicator showing which LEDs are activated.

An OpenSSH key manager Keychain is an OpenSSH key manager, typically run from ~/.bash_profile. When run, it will make sure ssh-agent is running; if not, it will start ssh-agent. It will redirect ssh-agent's output to ~/.ssh-agent, so that cron jobs that need to use ssh-agent keys can simply source this file and make the necessary passwordless ssh connections. In addition, when keychain runs, it will check with ssh-agent and make sure that the ssh RSA/DSA keys that you specified on the keychain command line have actually been added to ssh-agent. If not, you are prompted for the appropriate passphrases so that they can be added by keychain. From Debian 3.0r0 APT

keystroke logger (keylogger)

A program that runs in the background that records all the keystrokes. Key point: Once keystrokes are logged, they are shipped raw to the hacker. The hacker then peruses them carefully in the hopes of either finding passwords, or possibly other useful information that could be used to compromise the system or be used in a social engineering attack. For example, a key logger will reveal the contents of all e-mail composed by the user. Key point: Keylog programs are commonly included in rootkits and remote administration trojans. Key point: You can also purchase hardware devices that plug-in between the keyboard and the main system (for PCs). These are OS independent, they simply start recording, then the hacker can retrieve the device and instruct it to simply spit out all the characters back again on the hackers system. History: In November of 2001, the FBI revealed it has developed a keylogger Trojan as part of its Carnivore surveillance technologies. From Hacking-Lexicon

High Availability Clustering Package Kimberlite is a complete framework providing high availability for application services on Linux. The key features of the architecture include the following: - A complete high-availability service infrastructure prevents you from having to assemble an infrastructure from disparate components. - An extensible service-configuration framework enables you to easily integrate a wide variety of applications. - An exceptional data integrity guarantee differentiates the software from other contemporary offerings from the Linux community. Because of this guarantee, a Kimberlite cluster provides a solid foundation for highly-available data services, such as network-exported databases and NFS file systems, and is ideal as the data tier for dynamic web content. - Services fail over automatically when problems occur, without requiring manual intervention by system administrators. - A command line user interface and a web-based graphical user interface enable you to monitor and manage the cluster. - A cluster utilizes commodity hardware and storage options, such as SCSI and FibreChannel. From Debian 3.0r0 APT


Compiler development tool, complementary to lex and yacc. Kimwitu (pronounced kee'mweetoo) is a system that supports the construction of programs that use trees or terms as their main data structure. It is a `meta-tool' in the development process of tools. It can easily be interfaced with Yacc and Lex - the idea is that yacc and lex are used to do the parsing, and Kimwitu routines are used to built and manipulate the parse tree. There is also Kimwitu++ (also packaged for Debian) which interfaces with C++ instead of C. From Debian 3.0r0 APT


A (syntax-)tree-handling tool (term processor) Kimwitu++ is a system that supports the construction of programs that use trees or terms as their main data structure. It allows you to define, store and operate on trees with typed nodes. Each type of node has a specific number of sons, and expects these sons to have specific types. The most popular example of such trees are syntax trees. The nodes are defined in a Yacc-like fashion. The tree can be unparsed (ie. treewalk) and rewritten (ie. term substitution). Kimwitu++ gives you powerful pattern matching for specifying unparse and rewrite rules. Kimwitu++ is an extension to C++. It introduces Yacc-like node definitions, the unparse and rewrite rules, and extensions for pattern matching within functions. It will translate its input files into pure C++. To build the tree you might use a parser generated with Bison, but you are free to use other tools. There also exists Kimwitu (also packaged for Debian) which interfaces with C instead of C++ which can also be used in C++ projects, but Kimwitu++ has some extensions one might consider useful.

Jezzball clone for the K Desktop Environment. This is a clone of the popular Jezzball game originally created by Microsoft. Jezzball is one of the rare and simple games requiring skill, timing, and patience in order to be successful. A ball begins to bounce off of an area enclosed by four borders (like a square). You must move your pointer to certain areas within the square. Upon clicking, a new border is constructed at a relatively quick pace. You can change the direction of the borders by 90 degrees as well. Ultimately, you must force the ball to bounce around in a smaller, and smaller area as time goes by without the ball ever touching the borders as they are being constructed. If a ball touches a certain part of the border as it is being built, the game is over. After 75% of the original space has been blocked off from the moving ball, you advance one level, and one more ball is added to the mix in the following level. From Debian 3.0r0 APT

King of the Hill King of the Hill, KOTH, is an artillery game in the grand old tradition of little tanks with ridiculously powerful weapons trying to blow each other up while trying to avoid getting blown up themselves. KOTH is based on a client-server networking model. Players can join and leave at any time, and because bandwidth use is quite modest you can even easily play over a modem - KOTH really is a strategy game, ping time is irrelevant.

A KDE CD burner with an easy interface The description is a rip-off from http://www.kreatecd.de/intro.php KreateCD is a graphical user interface for the K Desktop Environment to copy and master own audio CDs (CDDA) or data CDs (CD-ROM). The idea to create such an application came to mind because there are only a few such applications for Linux and many people are not able to use the command line tools. Xcdroast is not bad at all but there are some features which are missing. I don't like TCL/TK very much so I decided to create a similar but more extended application for my favorite desktop environment : KDE. KreateCD itself uses some command line applications as base applications and provides a comfortable and very intuitive user interface which should be usable by people who don't have any experiences with Linux at all. The main features of KreateCD are: o Intuitive user interface o Supports mastering of ISO-9660 CD-ROM tracks o Is able to read .WAV audio files o Easy to use CD copy function o Some useful features to edit audio tracks before you write it to CD. (volume boosting, balance and range selection) o Audio playback From Debian 3.0r0 APT

Sokoban game for KDE The first sokoban game was created in 1982 by Hiroyuki Imabayashi at the Japanese company Thinking Rabbit, Inc. "Sokoban" is japanese for "warehouse keeper". The idea is that you are a warehouse keeper trying to push crates to their proper locations in a warehouse. The problem is that you cannot pull the crates or step over them. If you are not careful, some of the crates can get stuck in wrong places and/or block your way. It can be rather difficult just to solve a level. But if you want to make it even harder, you can try to minimise the number of moves and/or pushes you use to solve the level. To make the game more fun for small kids (below 10 years or so), some collections with easier levels are also included in KSokoban. These are marked (easy) in the level collection menu. Of course, these levels can be fun for adults too, for example if you don't want to expose yourself to too much mental strain. From Debian 3.0r0 APT
