http://sourceforge.net/ has plenty of options regarding open source software.
http://www.boran.com/security/unix1.html some article I found on securing unix, might be out of date, didn't read it.

Hi,

I am not to sure how indepth you want to get with the hole security thing, whether you just want a firewall in place, or you want a total lock-down of all systems. Also, are we talking straight Unix, or are we talking about Unix like OS's like FreeBSD?

Here is a link to a site that runs down all the steps to securing your system UNIX Security Checklist.

Cheers!
