PuTTY is a free and open source terminal emulator application which can act as a client for the SSH, Telnet, rlogin, and raw TCP computing protocols and as a serial console client. The name “PuTTY” has no definitive meaning, though “tty” is the name for a terminal in the Unix tradition, usually held to be short for Teletype.
PuTTY was originally written for Microsoft Windows, but it has been ported to various other operating systems. Official ports are available for some Unix-like platforms, with work-in-progress ports to Classic Mac OS and Mac OS X, and unofficial ports have been contributed to platforms such as Symbian and Windows Mobile.
Some features of PuTTY are:
The storing of hosts and preferences for later use.
Control over the SSH encryption key and protocol version.
Command-line SCP and SFTP clients, called “pscp” and “psftp” respectively.
Control over port forwarding with SSH (local, remote or dynamic port forwarding), including built-in handling of X11 forwarding.
Emulates most xterm, VT102 control sequences, as well as much of ECMA-48 terminal emulation.
Supports 3DES, AES, Arcfour, Blowfish, DES.
Public-key authentication support (no certificate support).
Support for local serial port connections.
Self-contained executable requires no installation.
Supports the [email protected] delayed compression scheme (As of r9120 2011-03-05).

KeePassX is an application for people with extremly high demands on secure personal data management. It has a light interface, is cross platform and published under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
KeePassX saves many different information e.g. user names, passwords, urls, attachments and comments in one single database. For a better management user-defined titles and icons can be specified for each single entry. Furthermore the entries are sorted in groups, which are customizable as well. The integrated search function allows to search in a single group or the complete database.
KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The password generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.
The complete database is always encrypted either with AES (alias Rijndael) or Twofish encryption algorithm using a 256 bit key. Therefore the saved information can be considered as quite safe. KeePassX uses a database format that is compatible with KeePass Password Safe. This makes the use of that application even more favourable.

The Sysinternals Troubleshooting Utilities have been rolled up into a single Suite of tools. This file contains the individual troubleshooting tools and help files. A thorough understanding of each of them is improbable however some of them have more readily understandable uses than others. For instance, Process Explorer allows you to see deeply into each running process, its CPU history, which executable was used to launch the program, where it is and what switches were used when launching. PsExec allows you to run any process on a remote system. Ever wanted to run another computer’s command prompt from your machine? PsExec is the tool to do it with! Conversely, PsKill can kill remote processes without having to install a utility on the remote computer.
