Securing Access using Proxy Integrated with Antivirus
AbstractThese days, web surfing is important in our daily life. We used search engine such as google, msn or yahoo to search something. Most of students of University Kuala Lumpur Malaysian Institute Information Technology (Unikl MIIT) will browse to the internet to search document or any references that related to their assignment, but not all of them browse to the secure URL or web page. This project aimed to manage blacklist and block any URL from student to access using squid proxy integrated with clam antivirus. Other than manage and block any website to access, this project also aimed to improve the squid proxy log by using Web GUI instead of view from the common log file format. It will ease the administrator to manage and analyse the log file. The embedded server is used as a main hardware platform to install Centos 7 Operating System. To configure and integrate with antivirus, the developer used squid proxy as a server and used clamAV database as the antivirus. The testing is implemented using the several lists of websites and also downloaded the virus file. It shows the system worked well as it blocked the website from being access. The administrator also can manage and view the user’s activities from the squid access log dashboard.
Submission of an original manuscript to the Journal of Computing Technologies and Creative Content (JTeC) will be taken to mean that it represents original work not previoussly published, that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication. All submitted articles that are published by JTeC cannot be published anywhere by the authors unless with the permission by JTeC Editors. JTeC reserves the right to the publications of the articles it published, and reserves the right to reuse the articles elsewhere for academic purposes, while still retaining the names of the original authors with the original articles.
JTeC takes the stance that the publication of scholarly research is meant to disseminate knowledge and in a not-for-profit regime, benefits neither publisher nor author financially. It sees itself as having obligation to its author and to society to make content available online now that the technology allows for such possibility.
