Securing DNS

Anyone fiddled with DNSSEC or DNS-over-TLS

I wouldn’t know where to begin.

I’m not familiar with these terms, but it seems if you’re going to be concerned about HTTPS and using VPN, you probably want to do this too.

Re: Securing DNS

Above my pay grade, but luckily I’ve not had to bother with securing my DNS, as my VPN provider seems to do it automatically. At least, it passes the DNS Leak test when I’m connected through the VPN.

Re: Securing DNS

Ah, leak test. I forgot I need to check that.

Re: Securing DNS

I was using ProtonVPN these last days, though didn’t understand all the features, then was reading a brief and came across this info on it:

No Logs Policy
Under Swiss law, we are not obligated to save any user connection logs, nor can we be forced to perform targeted logging on specific users. This allows us to ensure that your private browsing history does, in fact, stay private and cannot be turned over to a third-party under any circumstances.

Liking that. Kind of makes me wish I went with that Swiss web host, I forgot their name. Maybe next year.

DNS Leak Prevention
ProtonVPN doesn’t just protect your browsing traffic, we also protect your DNS queries. By routing your DNS queries through the encrypted tunnel and not relying on third-party DNS providers, we ensure that your browsing activity cannot be exposed by leaks from DNS queries.

So is that addressing my original enquiry in this thread? Maybe.

My trial is over already, though. Must now decide whether or not to buy/support ProtonVPN.

And this is perhaps noteworthy, ProtonVPN is working with Mozilla to integrate their VPN protection in Firefox. Though Moz is under flack lately about Google affiliations too.

Oh, what a complicated spider web it is.
