MyDLP on ICAP-Forum

without comments

MyDLP took its place in ICAP-Forum. Thanks to Martin Stecher.

“MyDLP is an open source data leak prevention project that enables organizations to identify and protect their sensitive data. MyDLP helps prevent data leakage through data transmission including Web, email and removable devices. ICAP, as an open standard, provides us the necessary content information in a solid way and helps us to identify data leakage over Internet. ICAP reduces complexity, increases focus on content for us. Moreover, another important aspect is the interoperability between different proxy manufacturers which support ICAP. This causes less dependency and helps MyDLP to penetrate market easier.”

Squid timeouts

without comments

If your users generally upload file with larger sizes then usual, you may need to modify Squid timeout options. Because, when MyDLP is inspecting big files (generally several times compressed files ), total inspection time increases naturally. And as a result, Squid could give timeout errors instead of waiting MyDLP.

To make Squid wait MyDLP, in /etc/squid/squid3.conf you should modify these parameters as;

read_timeout 30 minutes
request_timeout 30 minutes
persistent_request_timeout 30 minutes
pconn_timeout 30 minutes

Today, these worked great for us.
