Parental Control using OpenWRT

Submitted by gerry on Tue, 02/07/2017 - 22:47

As a parent, I am somewhat torn regarding 'parental control' of Internet Access where my daughter is concerned. She is 8, so has limited access anyhow, but I would like for that access to be as unrestricted as possible while at the same time avoiding her stumbling any age-inappropriate content, which as we all know can often be only 2 or 3 clicks away.

I have decided on a multipronged approach, with the main home router, a TP Link N600 running OpenWRT Chaos Calmer being the crux of this.

Worst. Spam. Ever.

I just got one of those 'we can SEO you to riches and fame' emails. Normally, I just ignore them, flag as spam so gmail recognises them in the future, and go about my day. This time, however, the brazen tone and apparently international presence of IMPACTFULSEO.COM caught my attention.

I have to be honest when I say that this does not inspire confidence. Neither the HSE, nor Eircom has shown themselves to be leading lights of security and disclosure, preferring a more reactive approach of spin in the face of obvious breaches and slips.
It remains to be seen how this plays out, but I, personally, am not expecting any major diversions from form.
