How to block websense Level of difficulty:
Websese is used by various government institutions, offices, schools and many others for filtering content in order to prevent users from accessing certain websites which are thought to be inappropriate for the place. These programs can either disable the use of some particular websites or all the websites. Websense has the power to block websites of different categories. It includes adult websites to entertainment sites to drugs, sports, internet communication, file sharing, gambling, instant messaging, health, illegal, shopping, job search, internet telephony, religion, special events, travel, violence, weapons, advertisements, freeware and software download, pay-to-surf, malicious websites, and lots more. The concept of Websense usage is simple. It denies access whenever the user tries to visit a specific webpage. A request is generated when the user tries to access a particular website. It then passes through a firewall. Websense inspects the request and replies yes or no based on whether the requested URL is in the Websense database. In the transparent mode, Websense counts on the fact that the firewall is going to forward the whole request in a single time. If the whole request is not being transferred at one time, Websense will not allow access as the request will not seem to be a HTTP request. Materials Needed:
- web browser.
