Re: [K12OSN] Scary article from Russia (w/o love)



Linux client authentication, LDAP implementation, squidguard, any application not in their contibs or howtos due to how they are implemented through the templates. Some of the howtos and contribs are way outdated and have issues with working properly on their current version 7.4 for example. One case in point (and I have many more to point out) is squidguard. The implementation on SME Server is actually very limited and very outdated. I implemented squidguard on K12LTSP and 100% functionality, but couldn't get it to fully work on the SME Server 7.4 implementation, primarily due to the way it is implemented through the templates and the outdated version used. I worked directly with the developer of the squidguard howto and was not ever able to get it to work because the version used just doesn't support Google SafeNet scripting, not to mention other search engines and limited flexibility with editing configuration. I worked with the developer of pfsense to get squidguard capable of doing these things, but that developer was using the latest release of squidguard.

BTW, the use of squid, squidguard, OpenDNS, and using SafeNet scripting on search engines addresses about 95%+ of security needs for most schools and definitely meets federal requirements.

What didn't work for you on SME server?
