  • DoH protocol could affect the level of freedom that users have in choosing the way DNS will be resolved for them, as well as provide more privacy by encrypting DNS queries. However, there are significant drawbacks such as the concentration of DNS traffic in the hands of a relatively small amount of remote DNS providers, as well as a possible predetermination of the list of DNS resolvers in apps.

  • Another problem with DoH that leads to policy debates is how to ensure that local content is still under reasonable control. We should keep in mind that what works on the state level does not necessarily work for a particular user. We need to think about balanced policy with alternative options available: Who do we trust to resolve DNS issues for us?

  • All stakeholders should participate in the discussion about DoH deployment and policies. The creation of a particular code of conduct for resolving services with standardised requirements for trustworthiness and data protection might be a good starting point.
