ivepkg is a package manager with a focus on homebuilt distributions like Linux From Scratch. Therefore, ivepkg has no repository or network abilities, but is specialized on installing tarballs to a system. Its key features are an easy-to-use database (sqlite3) and a sha1 checksum of every installed file. These make it possible to know which files have been altered (for example, by a malicious attack).
X10 is a type-safe, modern, parallel, distributed object-oriented language intended to be very easily accessible to Java programmers. It is targeted to future low-end and high-end systems with nodes that are built out of multi-core SMP chips with non-uniform memory hierarchies, and interconnected in scalable cluster configurations. X10 highlights the explicit reification of locality in the form of places; lightweight activities embodied in async, future, foreach, and ateach constructs; constructs for termination detection and phased computation; the use of lock-free synchronization; and the manipulation of global arrays and data structures.
Host Identity Protocol on Linux is an implemetation of the Host Identity Protocol (HIP) and the related architecture. HIP is a proposal to change the TCP/IP stack to securely support mobility and multi-homing. Additionally, it provides for enhanced security and privacy and advanced network concepts, such as moving networks and mobile ad hoc networks. HIP is "cool", which means that as a mobile VPN solution, when your network interfaces go up or down, there is no need to re-establish a secure tunnel.
