Blocking Google Images Content

Hi,

We have blocked Sex, and Nudity in the Category section.
And that works fine for all the users on our PAN 4.x

But when the users go to google.com, and search for sex,
they can still view unwanted content in the "Images" table of google.com

How can I stop this for Google, as well as other search engines...

Regards,

Tau

Once you have SSL decryption configured, you can follow following documents:

1. https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/videos/1332 (Video Demonstration of Google SafeSearch Custom App ID)

2. https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/docs/DOC-1399 (How To Control Image SafeSearch for Google and Bing)

You can block following app-ids from "Google-SafeSearch-Strict-4.1" :

1. google-image-search-moderate

2. google-image-search-ss-off

3. google-safesearch-set-moderate

4. google-safesearch-set-off

When users go to http://google.com or https://google.com (ssl decryption required), they can search for any keyword. When they click on Images, they will get a application block response page (Device -> Response Page -> Application Block Page). You can edit this page to guide them to change the setting to SafeSearch option . Once safesearch is enabled, they can access the image search.

Hope that helps.

Google is using ssl.

So you might need a decryption policy for this traffic to be detected and blocked.
