Hashmaster - Have a tool or application that is encrypting data, but you are unsure what algorithm is being used? Pass your application a string to encrypt and then pass those tow values to Hashmaster. It will make compare the values and attempt to identify the algorithm in question.
HITB Presentations - All the presentations from last months HackInTheBox Security Conference in Malaysia have been posted and are available to download. Pretty interesting stuff.
fierce.pl - By far, the best tool available for enumerating hosts via DNS. I had played with the very first version when it was announced, but had never bothered to follow up on subsequent releases. I recently downloaded and played with the most current version (0.9.9 - Beta) and was wholly impressed. A must have in any pen-testers toolbox.
Knoppix-NSM - A bootable LiveCD based on the popular Knoppix distro. This one has been customized to provide almost-instant NSM capabilities. Comes with Snort, BASE, Barnyard, ntop, and Squil. Was covered in this months copy of Information Security Mag.
