Proxy URL Filtering

By abajpai ·
Could anybody suggest some software/algorithm for providing both content and keyword based filtering for a squid proxy running on Linux? The problem should be solved in such a way that it can differentiate sex from Essex and chat from chatterjee etc.

There is a package called Squidguard that is designed to do just that. You can find a link to it on the Squid home page.

Hi,

I'm using SQUIRM package. It allowes to have forward browser form 'unwanted' URLs to another (you can create local webpage with policy extract etc.). So it allowes to stop downloading 'type of file' (for example .RA or .MPG files). It's useful.

You might try to have two files listing the URLs, one for the allowed sites and the other for the not-allowed. Then, in your ACL, permit the first and deny the second.
That's what I did and it worked until my users discovered that they cant ping the site to know their IP address and then write it in the URL :)
