Kazakhstan Government is now Intercepting All HTTPS Traffic

Talk about government spying!

The Kazakhstan government has started intercepting all HTTPS internet traffic inside its borders.

Local internet service providers (ISPs) have been instructed by the local government to force their respective users into installing a government-issued certificate on all devices, and in every browser.

The certificate, once installed, will allow local government agencies to decrypt users’ HTTPS traffic, look at its content, encrypt it again with their certificate, and send it to its destination.

Details may be found in an article by Catalin Cimpanu in the ZDNet web site at: https://zd.net/2JRn1lJ.

Will YOUR government be next?
