Root CA Certificate Installation

ICB network requires users (including Wi-Fi users) to install the root CA (download here) on their private machines (mobile phones, laptops etc.)so the HTTPS traffic can be decrypted and scanned for malware and other malicious activity. It is optional and you are not required to install the certificate on your personal devices unless you wish to use ICB network.

There is no possibility of effectively filtering SSL without installing a root CA, and so that is what we have to do for any device on our network that needs SSL connectivity. Unlike previous years, websites increasingly switching HTTPS traffic which makes http traffic filtering obsolete. If we could not filter the SSL sites, there would be no option but to block those websites entirely.
