The easy and free local DNS security solution from OpenDNS
We not only need our DNS system to be fast, censor-free but also secure from all kinds of government, ISP or hacker snooping. Various DNS manipulation malware’s have already shown the urgent need for an secure, verifiable global DNS system. And DNSSEC (Secure DNS) is the standard solution to the problem. Complimenting DNSSEC, the popular public-dns service provider OpenDNS has came up with an client side DNS security utility for both Windows and Mac named DNSCrypt.
Aimed to be the “last mile” DNS security solution between your computer and ISP, DNSCrypt is the solution for safe-and-secure DNS, securing users against any man-in-the-middle attacks, and DNS traffic snooping.
Why DNSCrypt is so significant: In the same way the SSL turns HTTP web traffic into HTTPS encrypted Web traffic, DNSCrypt turns regular DNS traffic into encrypted DNS traffic that is secure from eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attacks. It doesn’t require any changes to domain names or how they work, it simply provides a method for securely encrypting communication between our customers and our DNS servers in our data centers.
DNSCrypt has the potential to be the most impactful advancement in Internet security since SSL, significantly improving every single Internet user’s online security and privacy.
