Florida-based security vendor Entensys has unveiled a super-small experimental Web filtering appliance using the itself quite tiny Raspberry Pi.

The prototype Entensys filter appliance weighs just 94 grams; slightly more than two Raspberry Pis (which weigh around 45g).

The UserGate Web Filter runs on Linux-based systems and is used by public access Wi-Fi networks, schools, libraries, other institutions and businesses to filter Web content. It operates at the DNS level and also performs Deep Content Inspection of network traffic.

The Raspberry Pi version is part of Entensys' work to port its product to ARM-based platforms for use in low-power devices.

The Raspberry Pi is a low-power, low-cost single board computer that runs open source software.
