Internet Content Filtering

In accordance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and as a condition for the receipt of certain federal funds, we are required to implement measures to protect children from offensive/harmful Internet content. The Hawaii Department of Education has implemented Internet content filtering using Cisco Iron Port proxy appliances to monitor and block access to Internet content that are: (a) obscene; (b) has child pornography; or (c) deemed harmful to minors (for all computers that are accessed by minors).

The Cisco Iron Port appliance’s uses a data base that categorizes websites under different URL filtering categories. The URL categories that are determined to fall under the CIPA criteria mentioned above are blocked.
