Hello,
     I am trying to setup a Squid proxy that will only allow access to google drive. Basically, I have a computer that is on a manufacturing floor so that employees can update a shared production log hosted in google drive. I have installed Squid on a CentOS VM and have it up and running, but I'm a bit confused as to what rules to enable to allow only access to Google Drive, since it's encrypted via HTTPS. Thanks for any help!

You ban all sites then add an acl rule that allows the site(s) you want.
Only problem... with google drive it is not a single URL (or web address).

As well as drive.google.com
it will do things with acounts.google.com
and www.google.com too

SO if you allow all these people will be able to use google and maybe other services like gmail (maybe)

edster9999, I was planning on allowing the entire google.com domain, just like you posted. I'll try sslbump as well.

Ok, when I try to enable SSL bump, it says it can't find a certificate. How can I set up SSL bump?
