The Domain Name Systems (DNS) is at the core of the Internet. DNS weaknesses are used by attackers to manipulate and snoop on internet traffic, e.g. in order to eavesdrop on e-mail conversations. Measures to make DNS more secure include open standards like DNSSEC for integrity, QNAME minimization for privacy, and DNS over HTTPS and TLS for encryption (DoH and DoT).

It is vital for the internet that these standards will be implemented timely and in the right manner, not only by the few largest cloud platforms but by every access and service provider. Failure to do so will have increasin consequences for security and privacy, and could even lead to further centralization of the Internet.
