Proxy - Block all sites and only allow specific sites for specific users.

Jump to solution

Good Morning,

So I have a list of users (20 plus) who need to be blocked from accessing the internet and only allow access to specific websites.

I have successfully created my filters by URL of approved websites. The issue I am having is defining the users to whom this will apply to.

I did create a user group in which the users are assgned in AD but cannot find a way to apply this in the rule for the proxy.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Apologies in advance. I inherited several McAfee products and am doing my best to learn about them.

The property you are looking for is Authentication.UserGroups.  You can use this to check what groups the users are once they are authenticated.

I would set it up as 'Authentication.UserGroups' 'contains' <value> or 'Authentication.UserGroups' 'at least on in list' <MWG list name>.

Hi, could you clarify by name the McAfee product you are using so I can redirect this into the actual software sub-forum?

I second Andy's response.

In addition to that, you may also use username in case you dont have AD groups configured,

Authentication.UserGroups = AD group

Authentication.Username = domain users

You could create a list for either of these two and apply it in your policy. Your rule must be,

Authentication.Usergroups at least one in list <MWG group list> AND <URL list> with a "Stop Rule Set" action.

then set a blocking rule below that.

Regards,

Philip

Appreciate the assistance Andy and Philipprey. Glad to know that I was atleast headed in the right direction. I just need to fix a couple of things and and the rule should be working as intended.

How do you make the catch all rule to block all authenticated users after filtering on their whitelists
