NST (Network Security Toolkit) Version 1.4.1 Released

The latest NST release: v1.4.1 is now available as a VMware virtual machine download. See the home page for details on downloading:


This release is based on Fedora Core 4 using the Linux Kernel: 2.6.16-1.2108_FC4smp. Some of the highlights for the new release include:

* A enterprise class patch management system for NST WUI updates and system file patches and updates.

* A new nstvmware script to facilitate the use of NST within a VMware virtual machine.

* The inclusion of the VMware Tools and modules to optimize the NST performance within a VMware virtual machine.

* Some nice 'look-and-feel' enhancements to the X and NST WUI interface.

* Many new enhancements to the NST WUI database management pages for both the MySQL and PostgreSQL database servers.

* Replaced the NST WUI network protocol anaylzer capture engine: "tethereal" with the new light-weight "dumpcap" application which is part of the new "ethereal" v0.99.0 protocol analyzer suite.

* Many networking and security applications have been updated to their latest version.

* Due to time constraints, we've decided to wait until the v1.4.2 release to do a full SourceForge ISO release.

* The source code for the 1.4.1 release has been appropriately tagged and those that would like to build the ISO image from source are free to do so.
