OX Abuse Shield
New features with v2.10.1
  • Enterprise Linux 9-based systems are now supported as a build target. Oracle Linux 9 is used as the build environment, but the package should work on any EL-9 environment.
  • The StatsDBs used by the policy are now sharded, meaning that performance will be better for large datasets.
  • When libsodium is not available, weakforced will now use openssl crypto functions instead for encryption, including encryption between the client and the server, and replication encryption. OpenSSL encryption is used for the docker image, but the default for built packages is still libsodium.

PowerDNS Protect
New features with v2.0
  • Security Dashboard for Users
    PowerDNS Protect 2.0 comes with a security dashboard that allows users to view reports that show the security status of their network and the connected devices. It informs about blocked attempts to access filtered content, potentially malware-infected devices, and more. Security reports can be viewed over a time period ranging from one to thirty days.
  • Enhanced Notifications and Event Aggregation
    The new version provides a simpler way of displaying, consolidating, and acting on real-time notifications about events such as attempts to visit blacklisted webpages, blocked phishing attacks, and more.
  • Homework Time
    Homework time provides a feature whereby a more restrictive set of filtering rules can be applied during certain times, for example, to support children doing their homework and removing distractions such as messaging apps or video streaming. This can be done on a per-profile basis so different family members can have different homework times and settings.
