(this is not quite the DoH list, but it may be the DoC list. To find out
what DoC is, do read on!)

Hello everyone,

Last weekend at FOSDEM in Brussels there were three sessions on DNS Privacy,
Daniel Stenberg presented a keynote session “DNS over HTTPS – the good, the
bad and the ugly”, Vittorio Bertola discussed “The DoH Dilemma” while
Daniel, Stéphane Bortzmeyer and I formed a DNS Privacy Panel expertly
moderated by Jan-Piet Mens.

I wrote up what I learned on https://blog.powerdns.com/2019/02/07/the-big-dns-privacy-debate-at-fosdem/
and added some strongly worded conclusions on what I think of

So what is DoC? A lot of the animosity towards DoH is not actually directed at
DoH-the-protocol. The problem people have is with centralizing DNS on cloud
operators ("DoC").

For further discussions, if someone is venting on DoC but calling it DoH, we
can point out that they should not direct their anger at the poor DoH
protocol that can't help what people do with it.

Anyhow, this and much more can be found here:


I hope this will be useful to you.
