Squid Protected Caching Proxy Server on CentOS 8

Squid Protected Caching Proxy Server on CentOS 8

By: Tidal Media Inc Latest Version: 1.0.1

Product Overview

Squid is a caching and forwarding HTTP web proxy. It has a wide variety of uses. Along with the actual caching, Squid offers a wide range of features such as distributing the load over intercommunicating hierarchies of proxy servers.

The solution defines strict access control lists for all clients accessing the proxy, allowing or denying access to specific Web pages with the help of other applications, and generating statistics about frequently-visited Web pages for the assessment of the users' surfing habits.

As a proxy cache, Squid can be used in several ways. When combined with a firewall, it can help with security. Multiple proxies can be used together. It can also determine what types of objects should be cached and what period of time.

This Squid Protected Caching Proxy Server Image is pre-configured to ensure you with high protection and encryption. It is possible to use it together with a firewall to secure internal networks from the outside using a proxy cache.

The firewall denies all clients access to external services except Squid. All Web connections must be established by the proxy. With this configuration, Squid completely controls Web access.
