Name: knockd Distribution: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: 0.8 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: 2.1 Build date: Tue Oct 5 22:40:14 2021
Group: Productivity/Networking/Security Build host: obs-arm-11

Summary: A port-knocking server
It listens to all traffic on an ethernet (or PPP) interface, looking
for special "knock" sequences of port-hits. A client (package knock)
makes these port-hits by sending a TCP (or UDP) packet to a port on the
server. This port need not be open -- since knockd listens at the
link-layer level, it sees all traffic even if it's destined for a
closed port. When the server detects a specific sequence of port-hits,
it runs a command defined in its configuration file. This can be used
to open up holes in a firewall for quick access.
