ufdbGuard is a URL filter. The URL filter blocks access to sets of Web sites and cooperates with the Squid proxy. It integrates with LDAP, Kerberos, Active Directory, MySQL, and others to define different ploicies for different groups of users. ufdbGuard also enforces SafeSearch for many search engines, blocks Skype, UltraSurf, Tor, unsafe HTTPS sites, and dynamically detects proxy tunnels. The multi-threaded daemon uses a fast algorithm that does 50,000 URL verifications per second on an Intel Core 2 Duo (Conroe) at 2.4 GHz.

URLfilterDB has incorporated an additional URL category in their URL database: peer-to-peer (P2P). Peer-to-peer sites and networks are used to share files, often anonymously. The shared files are mostly movies, adult material and even sometimes illegal material. Previously, peer-to-peer sites were part of the URL categories proxies, warez, entertainment, adult and audiovideo. All clients of URLfilterDB are notified by email and encouraged to use the new P2P category.
