Logkeys

Homepage: http://code.google.com/p/logkeys/

Package: logkeys-svnAUR (The -svn version is recommanded. It is stable and includes the latest patch that allows logkeys work in Archlinux)

This program logs every keypress into a logfile for later inspection. It runs as daemon. The logfile by default resides in /var/log, but it is recommended to move it to an encrypted partition as it will contain every password ever entered in the system. For supervision purposes I recommend using the --no-func-keys option. Also there is some keymaps in the logkeys-keymap-svnAUR package, use them with the --keymap option, this is necessary to log the keys properly if you use a localized non US keyboard.

Whitelist with Tinyproxy and Firehol

The following description will enable you to filter any user's access to the internet with a whitelist of url-s using Firehol and Tinyproxy. For this, the tinyproxy-git package will be used, because the community package was compiled without transparent-proxy mode.

The tinyproxy-git AUR package: tinyproxy-gitAUR

firehol is in the [community] repo.

/etc/tinyproxy/tinyproxy.conf consists of the following changes:

FilterURLs On
FilterDefaultDeny Yes
Filter "/etc/tinyproxy/whitelist"

/etc/tinyproxy/whitelist should hold the url-s that will be only allowed accessed by selected users. A silly example:

(www|wiki|static).archlinux.org
google.com

/etc/firehol/firehol.conf should contain the following line:

transparent_proxy "80 443" 8888 "nobody root bin myaccount"

where myaccount is my account that should no be filtered by Tinyproxy.
