Victoria’s Department of Education [Australia] is expanding its monitoring of devices’ internal traffic from staff to students’ own devices at a number of schools.
The expansion will result in Zscaler SSL root certificates being installed on not only school-provided devices, but students’ personal devices if they connect locally to a school network.
The certificate allows student browser traffic to be decrypted for inspection, while still presenting to the user as if they were protected by HTTPS.
Privacy has become a very important issue in modern society, with companies and governments constantly abusing their power, more and more people are waking up to the importance of digital privacy.
In this community everyone is welcome to post links and discuss topics related to privacy.
much thanks to @gary_host_laptop for the logo design :)
Hmm, I remember someone asking about a switch to certificates at their school a few weeks ago.
Is this a sign that doing the packet inspection is becoming too difficult for mass surveillance?
