SSL Certificates in China

China market has not been the favorite for SSL vendors all over the world. There is information that authorities in China do not entertain fully encrypted websites.

Reports authorities need ability to filter the information that websites are passing out to the outside world filtered for ‘sensitive’ information and with deployment of SSL and full encryption of the website information – this censoring fails.

Authorities also crack down on foreign websites that target Chinese market, they require ability to filter the content that the Chinese citizen can access and for this censoring to succeed these websites need to have no SSL from the major CAs.

A recent case of can effectively illustrate this, the BBC a UK based media company has it website with no SSL for the longest past. During that time the website was readily accessible in China. A few months ago BBC deployed an SSL on their website – the website is now partially available in China.

It is worthwhile to note that there are Chinese based CAs like WoSign. WoSign has/had been banned by Google Chrome and Mozilla for lack of compliance in issue of SSL – they had issued SSL certificates for domains owned by Github to other people. WoSign appealed citing it as a mistake.
