Subject description: GNU/Linux port of the Little Snitch application firewall written in Python
 

Home page : https://github.com/evilsocket/opensnitch

The software is still in early stage of development, and alpha quality software, don’t rely on it (yet) for your computer security. However, this software can be very useful for Linux desktop users.

OpenSnitch is an application level firewall, meaning then while running, it will detect and alert the user for every outgoing connection applications he's running are creating. This can be extremely effective to detect and block unwanted connections on your system that might be caused by a security breach, causing data exfiltration to be much harder for an attacker.

Installation (by apt, so for Dog users) :
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev python-setuptools libnetfilter-queue-dev python-qt4 python-gtk2

Clone the repo :
$ git clone https://github.com/evilsocket/opensnitch.git

Install it :
$ cd opensnitch
$ sudo python setup.py install

Run it :
$ sudo opensnitch
