Severity: wishlist

  Description     : Small port-knocker server

knockd is a port-knock server. It listens to all traffic on an ethernet
interface, looking for special "knock" sequences of port-hits. A client
makes these port-hits by sending a TCP (or UDP) packet to a port on the
server. When the server detects a specific sequence of port-hits, it
runs a command defined in its configuration file. This can be used to
open up holes in a firewall for quick access.
