    LittleSnitch is a cool prog, it came in handy on more than one occasion. Haven't tried others from the list yet but they look interesting.

    I use little snitch to keep an eye on communication going out but is there anything similar to watch incoming? I keep the OS X firewall on all the time mind, so probably don't need to worry?

    Net tool box looks like it'll do the job but also has a lot of other stuff.

    I don't quite get why two Keychain-like apps are mentioned ...
    Just use Keychain in the Utility folder !

    Iroganai, I mentioned those in order to give people some choice, these are the types of applications that most of the regular users use on a daily basis.

    They have a different GUI and some people just dislike using the Keychain and don't find it intuitive. It's always nice to have options :)
