Bug#305587: RFP: cryptknock -- Encrypted port knocking daemon with high security

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : cryptknock
  Version         : 1.0.1
  Upstream Author : <jw123@users.sourceforge.net>
* URL             : http://sourceforge.net/projects/cryptknock

  Description     : Encrypted port knocking daemon with high security

(Include the long description here.)

Cryptknock is an encrypted port knocking tool. Unlike other port
knockers which use TCP ports or other protocol information to signal
the knock, an encrypted string is used as the knock.  This makes it
extremely difficult for an evesdropper to recover your knock (unlike
other port knockers where tcpdump can be used to discover a port

Encryption of the knock string is performed with RC4 using a secret
key derived from a Diffie-Hellman key agreement.  The entire process
takes 3 UDP packets.  Data is read using libpcap, so no UDP or TCP
ports need to be in a listening state for the program to work.

The daemon records successful and failed knocks via syslog.
