DeleGate is a multi-purpose application level gateway or proxy server that mediates communication of various protocols, applying cache and conversion for mediated data, controlling access from clients, and routing toward servers. It translates protocols between clients and servers, converting between IPv4 and IPv6, applying SSL (TLS) to arbitrary protocols, merging several servers into a single server view with aliasing and filtering. It can be used as a simple origin server for some protocols (HTTP, FTP, and NNTP).
The stunnel program is designed to work as an SSL encryption wrapper between remote client and local (inetd-startable) or remote server. It can be used to add SSL functionality to commonly used inetd daemons like POP2, POP3, and IMAP servers without any changes in the programs' code. It will negotiate an SSL connection using the OpenSSL or SSLeay libraries. It calls the underlying crypto libraries, so stunnel supports whatever cryptographic algorithms you compiled into your crypto package.
Tinyproxy is a light-weight HTTP/HTTPS proxy daemon for POSIX operating systems. Designed from the ground up to be fast and yet small, it is an ideal solution for use cases such as embedded deployments where a full featured HTTP proxy is required, but the system resources for a larger proxy are unavailable.
Smart Cache is full-featured pure Java proxy cache server. It can cache any pages and make them available for offline browsing. Other features include a URL filter, cookie filter, ability to fake User-Agents, Referer, and Cookie headers, Web forwarder (accelerator) mode, background downloading, multiple logs, fast operation, very configurable garbage collection, cache directory structure copies server structure, and cached files are ready for use (no headers inside).
Ziproxy is a high-performance forwarding (non-caching) HTTP proxy that gzips text and HTML files, and reduces the size of images by converting them to lower quality JPEGs or JPEG 2000. It is intended to increase the speed for low-speed Internet connections (mobile, dial-up, other). It's suitable for both home and professional usage. Ziproxy is fully configurable and also features transparent proxy mode, HTML/JS/CSS optimization, operation in daemon mode, a detailed access log with compression statistics, basic authentication, and more.
Charles is a Web debugging tool, HTTP monitor, and reverse HTTP proxy for Web developers that includes plain text debugging of HTTPS/SSL. It is built in Java Swing, and runs on all Java platforms. It is an HTTP proxy server that displays requests and responses, complete with HTTP headers. This enables the developer to examine the exact content of HTTP exchanges, including cookies, caching, and redirects. It can also throttle your connection in order to simulate modem conditions. It is a valuable tool for all Web developers and is especially useful for debugging XML RCP, SOAP, Web services, AJAX/XMLHTTP, and Macromedia Flash client-server traffic including AMF, AMF 3, LoadVars, and XML Sockets.
The Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy (ASSP) Server project aims to create an open source platform independent SMTP Proxy server which implements whitelists, Bayesian, and virus filtering to help stop unsolicited commercial email (UCE). Anti-spam tools should be adaptive to new spam and customized for each site’s email patterns. This easy to use tool works with any mail transport and achieves these goals requiring no operator intervention after the initial setup phase.
Wodan is an Apache module for reverse proxying and caching of sites. It allows the backend server to determine how pages should be cached through a custom HTTP header, which makes it very flexible. It caches on the local filesystem, which makes it very easy to create custom purging systems. Expiration of cachefiles is also supported, as well as no-caching options.
LiteSpeed Web Server is a high-performance, secure, easy-to-use, and Apache interchangeable Web server. It supports HTTP/1.1, SSL, CGI, FastCGI, LSAPI, PHP, JSP, Servlets, GZIP compression, chroot, IP level throttling, connection accounting, DoS attack prevention, and instant recovery mechanisms. With its Apache compatible rewrite engine, .htaccess, and MS FrontPage support, migration is quick and easy. A Web interface is included for administration and configuration. It can be used as a content accelerator, compression proxy, or a security guard running in front of any Web and application server.
