Web Security: "Phrase Weighting" for Content Filtering

Add phrase weighting to the content filtration much like what is used in Dansguardian, this would much improve the current content filtration. When used right it would allow pages within an otherwise approved domain or url such as YouTube to be blocked if inappropriate content is present. As is the case with Dansguardian the aggressiveness of this type of filtering can be adjusted quite a bit.

        this is a good start. I would rather see squid+DG fully implemented instead of the constantly problematic proprietary proxy in use now.

        I would also buy it, even if it was a literal lift of the dansguardian platform
        I think it is open source as well, so cribbing off of the code would be easy

        This should really not be that difficult to include; I would buy a license in a heartbeat if it was included.

        Yes I know this feature from other filtering solutions.

        You define a certain threshold and give each phrase a certain weight (positive OR negative!).

        Theoretically, TrustedSource can block individual pages, but the reality is that gazillions of pages will never be classified. In the USA, where a company can get sued if one person sees an unclothed person on a co-worker's computer, this capability would make a good addition to Astaro's marketability. This really shouldn't be that difficult to add.
