RFC 8094: DNS over DTLS published

RFC 8094 – DNS over Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) – was recently published as an experimental specification. This was the result of the ongoing activity of the DNS PRIVate Exchange (dprive) Working Group at the IETF to develop mechanisms to provide confidentiality to DNS transactions and to address concerns surrounding pervasive monitoring. DNS queries and responses are normally exchanged unencrypted on the Read more…

Google Cloud Platform gets IPv6 support

The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is now able to support IPv6 clients using HTTP(S), SSL proxy and TCP proxy load balancing. The load balancer will accept IPv6 connections from users, and proxy those over  IPv4 to virtual machines (i.e. instances). This allows instances to appear as IPv6 services to IPv6 clients. At the moment, this Read more…
