Content Filter: Packet Inspection and HTTPS

By | Blog | No Comments

Dang, has it really been so long since Ive updated anything? Goodness time gets away from me. I really need to spend some time on my blog.

So I have decided to setup a content filter on my network to help me control what gets transmitted to the browsers across my network. The problem is, I need a setup that can inspect HTTPS traffic so I can block known websites and domains that spread malware. Some malware gets transmitted through advertisements as well, which makes everyones browsing experience slow and dangerous. As far as I can tell, there is no easy way to do it without doing some sort of Man in the Middle attack, which is something Id rather not do. Id also like a transparent setup, but again that is something that I dont think is possible yet.

More to come as I research!

So heres my lazy post for today saying why there hasnt been much here lately. More to come!
