Abstract

Everyone on the internet wants your data. There’s way too much tracking, there’s way too many ads. Blocking unwanted ads and unwanted websites is the first step toward a safer internet. We’ll look at the options present, why some are good, why some are bad and why DNSSEC is currently the safest GOTO in the DNS Space.

I run my own DNSCrypt resolver and we’ll quickly talk about that as well.
