Encrypted DNS has been a hot topic for discussion in the world of Internet standards this past year. Its potential impact on enterprise networks has been a prominent part of that discussion. This webinar will explain the two methods for encrypting DNS (DNS over HTTPS and DNS over TLS, known as DoH and DoT), the perceived advantages of each over the other and of encrypting DNS in general, and the potential threats and dangers encrypted DNS presents to enterprise networks. We will then examine the publicly-stated implementation strategies of Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Mozilla as it relates to operating system and browser support for encrypted DNS. The presentation will end with recommendations and advice for how enterprise networks may adjust to the presence of applications and operating systems with support for encrypted DNS inside their networks.
