Content scanning internet without headaches aXsGUARD Gatekeeper can be extended with Content Scanning licenses providing secure mail and web traffic. Content scanning is available in combination with all aXsGUARD Gatekeeper software versions. It exists in two versions: 1. BASIC with default content scanning features and 2. STANDARD with additional features such as an Anti-Virus engine from Trend Micro© and web-based content scanning Content Scanning: mail The content scanner supports the most common mail protocols. E-mails can be stored on aXsGUARD Gatekeeper’s mail server or can be delivered to an external mail server after scanning for spam and malware. To stop all unsolicited mails, the content scanner has a multilayered way of scanning e-mails. A first scan will take the custom configured rules of blacklisting and whitelisting into consideration. Secondly, all known malevolent mails will be blocked based on default blocking mechanisms such as header checks or a list of banned IP addresses. Optionally, greylisting can be activated. With this feature, aXsGUARD will bounce received mails a first time. An actual mail server will resend the mail which will be accepted by the aXsGUARD appliance which will then list the sender’s mail address as ‘safe’ after a couple of successful mail deliveries. The reasoning behind this is that most spammers will not resend mails. In the standard version, DCC (Distributed Checksum Clearinghouse) will check with the central VASCO database to determine whether mail is spam. Mail virus scanning is also included: the Basic version uses Clamav; the Standard version additionally uses the Trend Micro engine. Each mail is scanned and scored based on its’ content. The administrator can then decide for each user or group if the mail should be blocked, delivered or marked as spam. The administrator can also decide what needs to be done with mail attachments, based on the mime type. Because spam can sometimes be very local and personalized, users can resend detected spam (or non-spam) mails back to aXsGUARD Gatekeeper, which will learn from these mails and as a result will adjust the spam scores. aXsGUARD Gatekeeper 8
Content scanning Content Scanning: web To avoid that users import all kinds of malware and to increase productivity, all web traffic should pass the proxy on aXsGUARD Gatekeeper. After authentication (web-based or SSO by using static passwords or 2-factor authentication), specific rules can be applied to each user or group of users. It doesn’t matter which PC the user logs on to, he will always receive his specific web browsing rules. In order to create those rules aXsGUARD Gatekeeper first needs lists: A site list can exist out of a list of defined URLs or parts of URLs in wording. It can contain words and URLs that you want to block, or words and URLs that should pass. (E.g. the administrator might want to block URLs with the word sex, but would want to allow URLs with the word msexchange Predefined blacklists are available on aXsGUARD Gatekeeper, categorizing 3.5 million sites into 90 different categories such as, malicious web pages (spyware, phishing, virus infected,…); adult related content (adult, porn, art nudes,…); social networking (chat, blog, im, mail, …); gaming (gambling, online gaming,…); whitelist (!) 100% suitable for kids;… Since site lists never can provide a complete list of all malicious sites on the Internet (due to localizations and new sites popping up every day), the standard version of Content Scanning also includes web content scanning: every web page will be scanned and analyzed, based on the content of a page. Using content analysis, the content scanner tags particular words and phrases with a score and a category (e.g. the word breast would lead to give a negative score, but when the word cancer is found in the same page, it would give a better score). 30 different predefined wordlists (positive and negative) in multiple languages are provisioned in aXsGUARD Gatekeeper. Administrators can create their own additional wordlists to give an even better result. After content scanning, the total web page receives a certain score. These site lists and wordlists are then combined into categories, to create a complete list of rules. It avoids repetitive work and adds granularity to the access rights you want to give to different users. A category can be defined as an allowed list, a forbidden list and an exception list. The exception list is used to block URLs inside a webpage, without blocking the whole page. 9 aXsGUARD Gatekeeper These categories are then added to access control lists (ACL). An ACL exist of categories of sites and the time when this ACL applies (e.g. during or outside working hours). It also adds virus scanning and blocking of specific extensions. In the ACL you also set the score for the web based content scanning, to decide which pages are shown or blocked. There is one general ACL, for all web traffic in the company, which can be overruled by ACLs which are applied for a specific IP address (e.g. printers, servers…), a group of people or a specific user. Reporting & statistics Every action through the proxy is logged on aXsGUARD Gatekeeper. Administrators can view and search through these reports during 2 months, or export them and use other analytic tools. A statistics tool is available as well which gives a complete overview of web and mail behavior. Statistics can be viewed per client, per website and per hour.
Authentication We authenticate the world To provide secure remote access, VACMAN Controller is integrated in aXsGUARD Gatekeeper. This allows users to authenticate themselves with a DIGIPASS on their network. The administrator can decide which level of authentication is needed for a certain application. Strong user authentication can be added to access the tool, authenticate on the proxy, VPN access and connecting to webservers through the reverse proxy or SSL Web portal. If you have another Radius client, it can also authenticate it’s users on the aXsGUARD Gatekeeper. The Gatekeeper supports hardware DIGIPASS (GO-series and 2xx series) as well as the DIGIPASS for Mobile. Belgian citizens who want to authenticate with their e-ID card can also authenticate on the aXsGUARD Gatekeeper with the DIGIPASS 810 for e-ID.
