Bug#241405: ITP: nsca -- Nagios service check acceptor - a nagios addon

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : nsca
  Version         : 2.4
  Upstream Author : Ethan Galstad <nagios@nagios.org>

  Description     : Nagios service check acceptor - a nagios addon

This program is designed to accept passive service check results from
clients that use the send_nsca utility (also included in this package)
and pass them along to the Nagios process by using the external command
interface. The program can either be run as a standalone daemon or as a
service under inetd. If you have libmcrypt installed on your systems,
you can choose from multiple crypto algorithms (DES, 3DES, CAST, xTEA,
encrypting the traffic between the client and the server. Encryption
is important in this addon, as it prevents unauthorized users from
sending bogus check results to Nagios.

It is downloadable from http://www.nagios.org/download/extras.php.
