Keymaster protects macOS systems from Apple's Gatekeeper. A free version is also available.

Keymaster is the first of a number of coming iterations based on Rixsteo's Seahaven technology as found today in the applications CandS, Changes, and Lightman.


Changes digs into the innards of macOS and shows you what's really happening behind the scenes. You really trusted Apple?



Clean and Seal: CandS cleans your downloads (and files in general) from toxic Gatekeeper cruft and then seals them to prevent further mischief.

CandS incorporates Seahaven technology today.


Through ten sovereign panels, Lightman shows you what's happening in your macOS system and what the system itself sees.

Lightman incorporates Seahaven technology today.

Extreme Power Tools

The programming team at Rixstep were part of the principal driving force behind Extreme Power Tools, Windows software acclaimed as perhaps the best engineered for that platform ever.

If you run Windows and don't have the XPT yet, you'd best wander over. The Radsoft site offers a rich selection of information on programming, computer workshops, software reviews - everything from here to the sun with nearly 2000 pages of content.

Computers, even Apple computers, are tools for work. Apple stuck their head in the sand on this one, trying to make their computers a lifestyle accessory. Rixstep create software to make your work work. There is elegance in simplicity. And power. And hard work too.
