Welcome to the Proxy Appliance Project.

This project claim to offer a full proxy structure based on Squid Proxy Cache 3.2x or above.

This new powerfull Squid Cache branch provide SMP support (multiple-processor) that increase dramatically performances.
In this website you will find necessaries ISO files in order to build appliances.
The appliance is fully compatible with VMWare ESXi , VMWare Workstation and Promox
The objective of these appliances is to build your own proxy structure including :

URL/Content Filtering

On-box URL database maximizes performance and flexibility.
URL filtering is enabled through an on-box, 28M+, divided across 150 categories.
The on-box database ensures maximum, inline performance and minimal latency.
Flexible policies can be implemented to control employee and network activity.

arrow-right-16.png Select from 150 categories and more than 28M+ sites or create a custom list through block lists.
arrow-right-16.png Specify group-based web browsing policies with a local/remote LDAP Database or Microsoft Active Directory connection.
arrow-right-16.png SSL decryption policies by allowing encrypted access to specific web sites such as health, finance and shopping while decrypting traffic to all other sites such as blogs, forums, and entertainment.
arrow-right-16.png Expressions in URLs.: Allows you to create rules that able to match words or regular expression in URLs
arrow-right-16.png ACLs.: Allows you to create rules like a FireWall with defined objects eg: IP addresses,Hostnames,MAC Addresses, Browsers,Web sites, picture nudity score

Content scanning with HTTP/FTP  Antivirus.

The antivirus is connected using ICAP protocol in order to provide the best performances.
