DansGuardian is a web content filtering proxy(1) for Linux, FreeBSD,
OpenBSD, and Solaris that uses Squid(2) to do all the fetching. It
filters using multiple methods. These methods include URL and domain
filtering, content phrase filtering, PICS filtering, MIME filtering,
file extension filtering, POST filtering. The content phrase filtering
will check for pages that contain profanities and phrases often
associated with pornography and other undesirable content. The POST
filtering allows you to block or limit web upload. The URL and domain
filtering is able to handle huge lists and is significantly faster than
squidGuard. The filtering has configurable domain, user and source ip
exception lists. SSL Tunneling is supported. The configurable logging
produces a log in an easy to read format which has the option to only
log the text-based pages, thus significantly reducing redundant
information such as every image on a page. DansGuardian is under
continuous development and so it is best to visit the web site for the
(1) Technically DansGuardian is more of a filtering pass-through than a
true proxy - but don’t let that worry you!
(2) DansGuardian should work with any proxy, not just Squid. For
example, it is known to work with Oops.
