Where is the DNS Headed? June 2020

The question I found myself asking was: “What has DNS privacy to do with registration operations?” 


The Domain Name System (DNS) is normally a relatively open protocol that smears its data (which is your data and mine too!) far and wide.
Little wonder that the DNS is used in many ways, not just as a mundane name resolution protocol,
but as a data channel for surveillance, and as a common means of implementing various forms of content access control.

But all this is poised to change.
