On September 18, 2023, the WebPulse team made a test database available for Intelligence Services and WebFilter (formerly Blue Coat Intelligence Services and Blue Coat WebFilter) customers to test policies against the new “Generative AI” category. The new category is part of the WebFilter URL category update scheduled to go live on October 2, 2023. The test database will contain the new category plus all existing categories, as they will appear when the update goes into effect on October 2, along with a single test URL for each category. The single test URL is located in the address bar of the test page and should not be confused with the category examples provided further down the page. Here is an example of what a test URL looks like: http://testrating.webfilter.bluecoat.com/Generative%20AI. Do NOT attempt to test using any of the multiple example sites provided for each category.
This database contains only test ratings and should only be deployed in a test lab environment for the purposes of developing and testing policy. It is not appropriate for use in production environments.
A complete listing of test ratings for all BCWF categories in the database is available here. This listing was also updated previously to include the new category.
The configuration for Blue Coat Intelligence Services can only be done from the command line interface
To complete the test you will need to spoof DNS to point to the test server (220.127.116.11). Steps 1-6 show how this can be done from an Edge SWG.
