/portsentry, Detects and respond to port scans against a target host in real-time
1.2, Package name:
portsentry-1.2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
PortSentry is designed to detect and respond to port scans against a
target host in real-time. Some of the more useful features include:
+ Runs on TCP and UDP sockets to detect port scans against your
system. PortSentry is configurable to run on multiple sockets at the
same time so you only need to start one copy to cover dozens of
+ PortSentry will react to a port scan attempt by blocking the host in
real-time. This is done through configured options of either dropping
the local route back to the attacker, using the Linux ipfwadm/ipchains
command, *BSD ipfw command, and/or dropping the attacker host IP into
a TCP Wrappers hosts.deny file automatically.
+ PortSentry has an internal state engine to remember hosts that
connected previously. This allows the setting of a trigger value to
prevent false alarms and detect "random" port probing.
+ PortSentry will report all violations to the local or remote syslog
daemons indicating the system name, time of attack, attacking host IP
and the TCP or UDP port a connection attempt was made to. When used
in conjunction with Logcheck it will provide an alert to
administrators through e-mail.
+ Once a scan is detected your system will turn into a blackhole and
disappear from the attacker. This feature stops most attacks cold.

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for security category
Problems found locating distfiles:
Package f-prot-antivirus6-fs-bin: missing distfile fp-NetBSD.x86.32-fs-6.2.3.tar.gz
Package f-prot-antivirus6-ws-bin: missing distfile fp-NetBSD.x86.32-ws-6.2.3.tar.gz

Package openssh: missing distfile openssh-7.1p1-hpn-20150822.diff.bz2
Package uvscan: missing distfile vlp4510e.tar.Z
Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden). All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Point MAINTAINER to pkgsrc-users@NetBSD.org in the case where no
developer is officially maintaining the package.
The rationale for changing this from "tech-pkg" to \
that it implies that any user can try to maintain the package (by
submitting patches to the mailing list). Since the folks most likely
to care about the package are the folks that want to use it or are
already using it, this would leverage the energy of users who aren't

Remove USE_PKGINSTALL from pkgsrc now that mk/install/pkginstall.mk
automatically detects whether we want the pkginstall machinery to be
used by the package Makefile.
