e-KL: please get certified

The Star featured a pull-out today on e-KL, the Malaysian Government’s attempt at an e-Government initiative. The initiative is being spearheaded by MAMPU, the Malaysian Administrative, Modernisation and Management Planning Unit.

“The public will now only need their mouse to navigate through government websites to run their daily official needs,” proclaimed The Star.

Wow, I thought. Maybe Malaysia would really be able to pull off its “no wrong door” policy after all. And since there was some official business I was planning to conduct at a government agency soon, I thought I would give this e-KL a try.

Here’s what I got:

Same thing on IE.

Try again, MAMPU. If you can’t even get the proper security certificates for your servers I’m not going to have the confidence to conduct my official needs online.
