This year I have witnessed too many DNS stories - rising from the Government censorship programs to privacy-centric secure DNS (DNS over TLS) in order to protect the customers’ queries from profiling or profiting businesses. There are some DNS which are attempting to block the malicious sites (IBM Quad9 DNS and SafeDNS) while others are trying to give un-restricted access to the world (Google DNS and CISCO OpenDNS) at low or no costs.
It’s the kind of evening that anyone would expect me to be sitting in office for a snacks time conversation. But today due to some power problems, we called the day off pretty early. I was feeling a little restless, so came out and walked into a Cafe Coffee Day (CCD) to have an Expresso. On the table next to me, there is a group of teens discussing about Facebook, Orkut etc.
