Netclean WhiteBox

Block what matters and help
stop re-victimisation

NetClean WhiteBox effectively blocks access to known child sexual abuse material. Compared to DNS-blocking, the only way to bypass NetClean WhiteBox is to use another provider to access the material. This means that WhiteBox covers all companies with their own DNS systems as well – without overblocking.

An advanced, centrally managed router-based solution

WhiteBox effectively blocks downloading of child sexual abuse material.

Users who attempt to visit web pages containing known child sexual abuse material are stopped even before the web page is downloaded.

Instead NetClean WhiteBox directs the user to a blocking page which warns that the URL or domain being accessed contains child sexual abuse material.

How it works

NetClean WhiteBox retrieves a block list and converts it into a list of IP addresses. These addresses are announced via BGP to the ISP routers with the intent of directing this traffic via NetClean WhiteBox. A URL inspection device matches the requests in the traffic against the block list, and if there is a match, a block page is displayed instead of the requested page, otherwise the traffic is forwarded to the destination unaltered.

Scalable

WhiteBox effectively blocks web access to child sexual abuse material throughout networks or groups of networks such as across multiple ISPs within a country or region.

Intelligent blocking

WhiteBox effectively blocks access only to the portion of the website known to contain child sexual abuse material – no over-blocking.

Flexible

WhiteBox can be configured to use any domain or URL blocking list that exclusively targets known child sexual abuse material. For example lists from National Police, Interpol, IWF.
