Interception Proxy


interception proxy

an “interception proxy” [RFC3040] (also commonly known as a “transparent proxy” [RFC1919] or “captive portal”) differs from an HTTP proxy because it is not selected by the client. Instead, an interception proxy filters or redirects outgoing TCP port 80 packets (and occasionally other common port traffic). Interception proxies are commonly found on public network access points, as a means of enforcing account subscription prior to allowing use of non-local Internet services, and within corporate firewalls to enforce network usage policies.
