UK ISP group names Mozilla 'Internet Villain' for supporting 'DNS-over-HTTPS' | ZDNet

UK government and local ISPs are putting the pressure on browsers to drop plans to support DoH protocol.

@ScottMortimer Ugh, this enrages me so much. DoH is a positive step in the right direction.

@ScottMortimer I still need some explanation as to how DNS-over-HTTPS is so bad for parental controls (as if you couldn't pick up a custom DoH with a blocklist, use routers with firewalls, so on)... of course, if that was their ONLY (true) concern, this wouldn't be an issue

@espectalll @ScottMortimer If you install parental control on the device itself then it will still be able to achieve what it should, but proxies wont be able to block DNS requests anymore(which is basically not a bad thing)

@ScottMortimer In my opinion the best part of the article: Mozilla was nominated for preventing certain ways to block access to information, while at the same time Art. 13 was nominated (how do you nominate a paragraph of text?) for "threatening freedom of expressing".

@ScottMortimer there are valid criticisms of DNS-over-HTTPS, but this isn’t one of them 😁.

@ScottMortimer But from a brief readthrough, DOH is awesome, and should absolutely be legal?!

@ScottMortimer DNS over HTTPS (which Android 9 already supported, but I guess Google is too powerful to make an enemy of) is the ray of hope against heavy-handed government #censorship and #surveillance in Indonesia and many countries. No wonder some ISPs are worried, given how much they want to get into the #surveilancecapitalism game themselves

@ScottMortimer Governments being angry because of improved security is my jam!

@ScottMortimer imagine what they will call them when they include handshake protocol addresses!
