One of the common topics we see on SmallNetBuilder Forums is how to create and manage access controls for the network - mostly along the lines of Parental Controls

Great article over on ArsTechnica regarding prisoners setting up a couple of computers and getting network access... and this isn't much different than a determined kid trying to overcome parental access controls - if it's there, people will find a way to get around pretty much anything...

As part of the article, there is the formal report (pdf link)
