Please implement and integrate a GUI for port knocking.
PK adds a simple but effective layer of security.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_knocking

I imagine the PK GUI to be able to use/add/edit/delete
a list of port knocking "sequences." Each sequence has
one title, one host name, and then an arbitrarily-long,
ordered list of port numbers and protocols (TCP or
UDP). So, a sequence might be:

Title: The office LAN
Hostname: office.example.com
#1: UDP 12898
#2: TCP 62181
#3: TCP 9999

    Tunnel over ssh for your security! Better yet: use knocking to connect your ssh
    client, then use the tunnel to use vtun.

    Yes, actually it would be nice if all that were built into
    the VNC application so a person doesn't have to run three
    programs to start a VNC connection.

    By the way, already "Enhanced TightVNC" integrates all
    three. Also, WinSCP and AlmostVPN (which both use SSH) are
    adding port knocking.
