dbd is a Netcat-clone, designed to be portable and offer strong encryption. It runs on Unix-like operating systems and on Microsoft Win32. dbd features AES-CBC-128 + HMAC-SHA1 encryption (by Christophe Devine), program execution (-e option), choosing source port, continuous reconnection with delay, and some other nice features.
Intersect 2.5 is the second major release in the project line. This release is much different from the previous, in that it gives the user complete control over which features the Intersect script includes and lets them easily import their own features, among other new functionality.
