DNS Over HTTPS: Spanish Version of eco Discussion Paper on DoH Available

Discussion Paper on DNS over HTTPS (Spanish Version / Available Here)

  • DoH improves the privacy and security of users
  • eco Discussion Paper on DoH explains complexities and provides recommendations
  • Paper — first published in September 2020 — now available in Spanish

Throughout the history of the Internet, traditional DNS traffic — for example, when a user types a website name into a browser — has largely been unencrypted. The DNS over HTTPS (DoH) protocol, which first emerged in 2018, makes use of the well-known secure HTTPS web protocol to change that.

Several large-scale Internet companies, including Apple, Mozilla, Microsoft, and Google, have already implemented or are in the process of implementing DoH into their services and applications. While the encryption of DNS has the advantage of improving user privacy and security, a discussion has emerged around the DoH protocol on a range of issues. To clarify some of the complexities — both legal and technical — and to provide recommendations for implementation and deployment of DoH, members of the eco Association published a Discussion Paper on DNS over HTTPS in 2020. In the meantime the paper has been downloaded many times and formed the basis for wider discussions. To broaden the audience of the paper, the South School on Internet Governance based in Argentina now has produced a full translation in Spanish.

"In an interconnected world where the Internet has become the most important element for working, learning, and communicating among family, friends and colleagues, security and privacy emerge as one of the most important issues to be considered. In this sense, all new information on these two relevant topics is always of great interest," says Olga Cavalli, Co-Founder and Director of the South School on Internet Governance. "This is the case with DNS over HTTPS, which brings new possibilities of encryption and security for resolving domain names. This important document produced by eco gathers the relevant information about this protocol, which enhances the security and privacy of the DNS. Therefore, we believe that a translation into Spanish will benefit and be of great interest to our communities in the Americas, in Spain, and to those who share our language."
