We are glad to present the 4.3 alpha version of Web Safety ICAP web filtering server for Squid proxy. In this version we tried to concentrate on better reporting, SSL root certificate management and dashboard.
This version contains the following bug fixes and improvements:
- Monitoring information is now collected and processed by a specific standalone monitoring server wsmgrd. It is responsible for upload of monitoring information into configured database and generation of Surfing Now real time information, Surfing History and reports. Report upload was heavily optimized so hopefully the ever running Python upload scripts are now history. Please take into account the report generation is still being done by Python so it may still be slow on huge traffic. We plan to concentrate on this in version 4.4.
- We now added the Web UI for management of Root CA certificates for the Squid proxy. It is now very simple to generate your own trusted root SSL decryption certificate, back up or upload your own pre-generated certificate.
- Web UI has a new and remastered dashboard with charts of CPU activity, RAM and SWAP used, various system information and history of last connections processed by Squid. Surfing Now and Surfing History allow searching for not only incident id as before but also for host, address, user name, etc.
Next steps are to implement Raspberry PI build and FreeBSD 10 / pfSense 2.2.
