Dnscrypt Anonymous 03/23/2018 (Fri) 00:50:40 [Preview] No. 12513

What is up with dnscrypt-proxy?

The project has been abandoned?

What is the replacement?

I think they have no more modifications to do... They can't change low-level stuff because it has to be approved by IETF, from what I know.
Are you using OpenNIC servers? Because if you use it in a server that doesn't support dnscrypt the connection will not be encrypted. Also, if you're using Tor, just enable TorDNS and it will already encrypt dns requests.

Using the Tor bundle, which handles dns itself. At least, I've never seen it leak dns requests. I'm aware that setting up a stand alone Tor relay or router (or a regular browser proxied through Tor, etc.) requires more dns diligence.

I like using Dnscrypt for clearnet stuff, which I still use for certain situations. Not chan browsing, obviously.

If you're curious, I use Bind9(forward and caching mode) -> Dnscrypt.

My real problem here is if people stop running Dnscrypt servers and/or the list of servers stops being updated. The lack of comment about this is alarming. Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places?

Dnscrypt2 is apparently a thing now, but I'm only keeping an eye on it, not using it. At least not until I hear from the greater community that this is the next thing.
