It’s been in the news lately, privacy was into the discussion of lots of users. We are happy to say the waiting is over. On android it’s in beta test to use security on different provided services.
It start from an application on Android that is on beta test to make your request serve by a provider.
What it does better?
This is the way it work, in a internet conversation, you need to go to a website it give the request to your provider to ask into a map of the Internet where the website location is. An ipv4 address is make like digit translation of what for example Heardvoice domain is having as a physical location. Like a house for example the service will say it’s two corner from the current store on the main street. In order to be able to do that it has to interrogate others to know where the new store is located and give the direction where you can find the house near the store. Once completed it give the route to follow, in that immense network, looking for what you search is easy and it get normally well, for a good period of time.
What is better today?
Now there no privacy in doing search like you would be with your cars searching for the location. In order to get the network compliant it has to be public ip, people learn from it and say it was weak. Now there things coming to place. When you are able to make the traffic get into encrypted form of dns over tls (https) it give the approval that your traffic on the Internet will remain on road that is not dangerous. In order to do so it get the map of where the road is crypted and using good protocol, it will ease up the way to looking if you get in a secure website.
It is amazing to see finally new tool that make the Internet safer and affordable
On android there a developement apps and many other platform will definately coming. Provider will probably ask for a better way also to protect their client. All I know in early stage it’s promising.
Here an article that provide additional information about what will be in the development of that kind of security related to dns-over-tls.
