In Almaty, this Thursday, October 19, at 7:00 PM in SmartPoint, I'll be presenting an open report on the topic of "Security and DNS."

The Importance of DNS

We all recognize that DNS is the backbone of the internet; without it, nothing would function properly. It's everywhere, yet its significance in cybersecurity often goes unnoticed.

What to Expect

While the document is still a work in progress, I plan to cover the following key areas:

  • Why DNS is crucial and how it operates
  • Its impact on security
  • How it affects users
  • DNS and Threat Intelligence
  • The origins of DNS 😡

Event Details

Admission is free. Unfortunately, the link to the event is only available on LinkedIn, where you can find the full agenda.

For those attending, see you at the event! ✌️))

In first - Big Thanks to the DNS Blocklists project for their significant contribution to "Keep the internet clean" ideology

In this quarter of 2023, I've introduced various enhancements to the ecosystem.

🔻Here's the scoop

  • 1️⃣ now incorporates the DNS Blocklists project into its own DNS filtering mechanisms, ensuring a cleaner internet experience.
  • 2️⃣ Successfully resolved major Apple content delivery issues for Eastern Europe, enhancing DNS delivery experience.
  • 3️⃣ Experience a boost in DNS response speed by approximately 5%. The General pool is now around ~111ms, while Local pools are at ~70ms.
  • 4️⃣ According to Alternativeto, stands out as an alternative to Quad9, NextDNS, AdGuard DNS, AhaDNS, and BlahDNS.

✨ And most importantly, is your go-to solution for a clean Internet – free from Ads, Tracking, Metrics, Telemetry, Phishing, Malware and all that other "Crap.” without agent installations and add-ins in your browsers.

Embrace yourself and stay focused with the power of clean Internet with DNS 😎
