i don’t understand;  do you have regulations (in sudan) to explicitly 
permit/deny the use of TLS1.0 ?  or ssh2?  or ECDSA?   (is this why so 
many sudanese websites don’t have an https option?)   if not, then, 
why are the protocols you mention special?

this might be a case of me not understanding correctly;  you don’t 
need regulation to use (for example) TLS1.3.  right now, someone willing 
to spend the time and effort to compile nginx/apache/blah, with the 
right flags, can set this up today  (hrm:  note for the sdnog admin 
team, to do this on your www/wiki..).


ps.  i really don’t like DoH;  but i don’t think that calling for 
its regulation is the right approach either.
