We've been delaying the deployment because we're trying to use AD group memership to determine which WFE policy to apply, and for some reason with ePO 4.5, when I define an LDAP server, it essentally brings the server down due to overhead created by agent communication encryption set ups and tear downs and/or user lookups causing max connections and DoS...4.6 is supposed to fix this. So hopefully then, we'll be 'in there'
Yes, I've created a simple whitelist with just ".ilstu.edu" in it to provide access to all the sites that end in ilstu.edu such as www.ilstu.edu and www.admissions.ilstu.edu. I have not been able to block all sites except the whitelist site which is one of my goals with Site Advisor in the case of an emergency where there are serious risks to browsing. An example would be if there were a zero-day vulnerability that was actively being exploited.
Right, the tool does not currently have an option to setup a global blacklist. The limitation of having to have a site designated of at a least 6 characters prevents creating one with wildcards or a series of wildcards. For example, blocking all of .com, .net, and several overseas domains isn't possible because they are two or three characters short of the minimum requirement.
Guys this is what I do I have a long list
Product = SiteAdvisor Enterprise Plus 3.0
Category = Prohibit List
I enter in all three of the following examples. I've been building my list for a while hope that this helps
Out of respect to the Community I don't want to attach my list because of the content that I've built over the last few months. If there was a way to share the the list together I would be all for it but I would want to email it directly to you if that is ok with Mcafee!!!Message was edited by: jkaminsky on 12/3/09 9:48 AM
We released an add on module to do Endpoint Content filtering of SAE called, " Web Filtering for Endpoint." It is included in several of the new Endpoint suites released in June of this year or optionally as a stand alone SKU (WFE)), you can block all web sites by choosing "Block" on all 96 content categories. Then you can enable access only to specific sites by creating an authorize list.
