SSL Inspection Policy

According to The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), schools are required to implement a web filter that can block content that is pornographic, obscene or harmful to minors. Another requirement is to have a policy that monitors the activity of students while on campus. These policies must be implemented on the devices that students use while on campus so it can protect students from inappropriate content.

SSL is a type of encryption protocol used by the majority of websites to make sure that data passed from their web server to a user’s web browser is encrypted. A secure website's URL begins with “https” rather than "http". Search engines such as Google use this type of encryption as well as any site that requires a user to login. Our web filter, to comply with CIPA rules, needs to use SSL inspection so that we are able to block inappropriate content. Content filtering only applies to devices connected to the TKA network. With our current setup, TKA cannot apply the school filtering policies to devices that are not connected to the TKA network.
