Validating identy network
The logical route for today’s concerned, yet lazy, parent, is to shell out hundreds of bucks for some off-the-shelf piece of software that they can install on their kid’s computer.
To validate a digital certificate, a client application can simply query the VA Server rather than performing the cumbersome task of obtaining and processing the entire CRL every time it encounters a digital certificate.Using the E-mail tab, you can have your router email you the logs on a daily/weekly/hourly basis or each time someone tries to access a blocked website.Or, you can send the logs manually from the Logs page.If you have another router, such as a Linksys, Belkin, ASUS, or D-Link router, the steps will look entirely different.But you can achieve the same outcome by poking around in the settings and just reviewing each section of the router admin portal. If that doesn’t work, open and type ipconfig /all and look for the field that reads default gateway.Using this information, we’ll track who was looking at what. Blocking sites and services on your router restrict access to certain websites or activity on certain ports.
Here, we see that all the activity is coming from 192.168.1.6. This is a rock solid way to police web activity because it can’t be circumvented from a computer.
When it comes to ensuring safety and responsibility on the Internet, proper education and a policy of mutual trust and respect are the best policies. The web is a vast playground of debauchery and anthropological horrors, and it’s a teenager’s prerogative to peer occasionally over the Gates of Mordor into the land of shadows.
From porn and bomb-building guides to Facebook and Twitter, the Internet is a vast cornucopia of potentially hazardous material.
For the most part, I’m of the opinion that a little bit of minor mischief is harmless, and perhaps even character building, as long as they come out relatively unscathed.
But if you’re interested in sheltering your child, there’s an equally lavish smorgasbord of parental control and net nannying tools at your disposal.
But if you are ever suspicious that your kid is involved in something way over his or her head, these tools may be able to help you catch it before something disastrous happens.
