ICTA Public consultation for TLS MITM in Mauritius

The Information and Communication Technologies Authority (ICTA) is asking for public consultations on a framework to regulate use of social networks in Mauritius. One of the ideas is requiring Internet users using social networks to install as an ICTA-issued Certificate Authority certificate in their operating system or browser so that certificates can be issued for domains such as facebook.com. This is required to allow a Man in the Middle (MITM) proxy server intercept, decrypt, inspect, log, and/or block access to URLs. The public consultation paper is accessible on:
