Content filtering is the technique whereby the content (information) is blocked or allowed based on a content analysis. This type of filtering is most used on the internet to filter e-mails and internet access.
Content filtering is frequently used by organizations like bureaus and schools to stop users to access sites with inadequate content. Filtering rules are usually established by the IT department.
To fight against illegal content Safer Internet program finances projects that focuses on increasing efficiency of existing filtering and monitoring software and on developing new ways to label the content. Now, Safer Internet program finances the project SIP-BENCH II for benchmarking of filtering tools and services.
The purpose of this project is to help final users (especially parents and child's tutors) in choosing the most suitable tool of parental control. This will be realized trough a evaluation of products that allow users to control children access to online content.
