Google Search Appliance unboxing

leave a comment »

As part of our project we will be doing some data mining using the Google Search Appliance to see how this can assist organizations in discovering relationships that have been recorded electronically.  The GSA can index access controlled resources including databases, file shares and other services you care to write a OneBox interface to, and has the smarts to work out who has permission to see what.  More info on this here…


The GSA has been unboxed, racked up, and given a minimal config – but we have some more work to do to figure out things like which authentication mechanism to use, and also (ironically) to ensure that we don’t reveal to the world those indexed resources that would not normally be viewable outside of our IP range.
