Kazhak government forcing users to install surveillance software?

Postby Milad » Sat Jul 20, 2019 6:44 am

Hi,

It appears that you cannot access the internet in Kazakhstan anymore if you don't have installed a certificate which essentially enables the government to monitor your traffic. Information on the affection on tourists by someone who is/has very recently been there would be highly appreciated.

I'm in Kazakhstan.
Internet works without that certificate.

There are many rumors about the certificate.
There is a link to a good article about it below.
In Russian, but can use Google translate.

In short, you don't have install it and you'll have Internet access without it.

Going to Kazakhstan tomorrow. Was worried about this. Then I read that the government has stopped the "test". Phew.
