- PReMo is a tool for the analysis of Recursive Markov Chains and Stochastic Games as well as Stochastic Context-free Grammars. It can also be used to find a fixed point of arbitrary polynomial equation systems. Apart from a GUI version, it also has now a command line interface.
- Spookey is a tool that can compute the value of trust metrics for the SPKI/SDSI authorisation protocol.
