My company has a 'bring your own device' policy. You connect your device to the WiFi, and then open a citrix environment through a web portal. Basically, everything inside the citrix env is company-software/email. Outside is your own software/mail/browser.
I know that anything I do online outside of the citrix environment still transfers over company WiFi with the possibility that it is inspected.
Very recently however, the connection to the internet outside the citrix environment ceased to work, I assume by design, since now I get a pop-up asking me to install a certificate that is clearly issued by the company. This should restore internet connection.
Will this give them any additional ways to monitor my machine over the old situation?
Will they for example be able to inspect end-to-end encrypted messages?
Is it a good idea to accept this kind of a certificate given the fact that I am a contractor and work for multiple clients?
Additional point to consider: Some of our developments require work/testing outside of this citrix environment, due to shortcomings of the VM. Still, there is no need or possibility to connect to any company resource (network shares etc...) from outside the VM.
EDIT My question is specifically what kind of (additional) negative consequences this certificate will/might have, versus before, when we could access internet without any certificate installed. Therefor I think this question is different from Can my employer see what I do on the internet when I am connected to the company network?
