This report presents the findings of a study commissioned by the Australian Broadcasting Authority (ABA) and NetAlert into the effectiveness of a number of Internet content filtering products. The study examined both how easy the products were to install and use, and how effectively they filtered Internet content. The products under evaluation all attempt to effectively filter the Internet, blocking access to "undesirable" content, such as pornography or racist propaganda, and letting all other content pass through untouched. In reality, this is an impossible goal as the Internet is just too big and dynamic, and all products will pass through some content they should have blocked and block some content that should have passed through.
