I am considering to install a gateway-based parental control system at home.
I specifically want to activate ratings-based web filtering.
From the documentation of commercial solutions such as ZyWall USG 20, I understand that the internet users will be attributed a
password to access the internet.
What bothers me is the impact of this authentication. I was not able to understand when (how frequently and at which stage of the access attempt) the users will have to authenticate.
I am afraid it would be too complex for a 7-8 year old kid, and then reduce its autonomy in accessing internet.
Can anyone help me with a description of the typical authentication use case ?
