Hi Mansour,

I will add the item to the list -- the other tools do not have any 
description either.
However note that the Auditing project is currently in a sleeping state. 
No one is auditing code in the tree for new vulnerabilities (at least 
not as part of the project). If you have an interest in this subject 
and would like to participate in reviving the project, that would be 
great. It can be a way to become a Gentoo developer and participate in 
a great community, and to cooperate with others in the Security project 
and other vendors. But keep in mind there is a certain amount of work 
that comes with this.
