Chinese Government is Blocking Encrypted HTTPS Connections That Use TLS 1.3 and ESNI

Since the end of July, the Chinese government has deployed an update to its national censorship tool, the Great Firewall (GFW), to block encrypted HTTPS connections that are being set up using interception-proof protocols and technologies, according to a joint report published this week by three organizations tracking Chinese censorship — iYouPort, the University of Maryland, and the Great Firewall Report. Chinese officials are only targeting HTTPS traffic that is set up with new technologies like TLS 1.3 and ESNI (Encrypted Server Name Indication).
