    As I understand it, RMerlin likes DoT, and dislikes DoH. Thoughts on DNS-over-QUIC?

    Hoping this is the year you add DoH support!

    Improving DNS Privacy with Oblivious DoH in

    That’s certainly one strategy, but who owns the VPN? Options are a good thing.

    Improving DNS Privacy with Oblivious DoH in

    I can see why you might think that, but everything is a compromise. This has the backing to make a difference.

    Improving DNS Privacy with Oblivious DoH in

    Been reading about this - really excited to see the big names behind this! Hope Merlin implements despite his personal biases.

    That's remarkable, I did it remotely without reboot and had no issue.

    what is the best wireless consumer router for security?

    Nothing designed in China or a Chinese territory not because of the people, but because their legal system lacks provisions for privacy for consumers or means to push back against government intrusion.

    Hasn’t Cloudflare been encrypting SNI since 2018?

    NextDNS Installer

    Hey Oliver, happy NextDNS customer here! Not sure if you noticed the discussion of DoT vs. DoH in various threads here? Wondered if you had anything to offer to that topic... and why the NextDNS CLI doesn’t offer a DoT option?

    Asus Merlin - Is there a development road map?

    Unfortunately it doesn’t have the information I was looking for. That was the point of my post.

    DNS over HTTP on Asus Merlin

    Sorry I am still not following. Are you saying that there's a risk inherant in DoH because it's not "exclusively encrypted"? What is the risk? Do you have a source for this?

    But "other risk or vulnerabilities may lie waiting" whether or not you're using DoH.

    DoT vs. DoH

    I understand why RMerlin doens't like DoH as a network admin. I also understand why Google and Firefox use DoH, not because it's better, but simply because a browser can't use DoT. What I didn't realize that DoT was lower latency, making me rethink using DoH. I wonder why NextDNS chose DoH...
