QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections) is a new encrypted-by-default Internet transport protocol, that provides a number of improvements designed to accelerate HTTP traffic as well as make it more secure, with the intended goal of eventually replacing TCP and TLS on the web.
Back in April, I wrote about how it was possible to modify a router to encrypt DNS queries over TLS using Cloudflare's 126.96.36.199 DNS Resolver and a GL.iNet router; the folks at GL.iNet read that blog post and decided to bake DNS-Over-TLS support into their new router using the 188.8.131.52 resolver.
It's no secret that Cloudflare has been a big proponent of TLS 1.3, the newest edition of the TLS protocol that improves both speed and security, since we have made it available to our customers starting in 2016.
Over the few last hours, a dozen news stories have broken about how an attacker attempted (and perhaps managed) to steal cryptocurrencies using a BGP leak.
This blog post explains how you can configure an OpenWRT router to encrypt DNS traffic to Cloudflare Resolver using DNS-over-TLS.
