Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In computing, a blacklist or block list is a basic access control mechanism that allows everyone access, except for the members of the black list. The opposite is a whitelist, which means allow nobody, except members of the white list. As a sort of middle ground, a greylist, contains entries that are temporarily blocked or temporarily allowed. Greylist items may be reviewed or further tested for inclusion in a blacklist or whitelist. An organization may keep a blacklist of software or websites in its computer system. Titles on the list would be banned and everything else would be allowed. For example, a school might blacklist Limewire and ICQ; other Internet services would still be allowed.
