Tuesday, Dec 3 meeting topic is:

ENCRYPTED DNS
 
At this presentation we will cover why the big ISPs are not happy about
encrypted Domain Name System (DNS)?  Currently, most DNS queries are unencrypted, which raises privacy and security concerns. Google and Mozilla are trying to address these concerns by adding support in their browsers for sending DNS queries over the encrypted HTTPS protocol.  But major Internet service providers have cried foul.
 
A switch to encrypted DNS would clearly mean ISPs had less ability to
monitor and manipulate their customers' browsing activity. Indeed, for
advocates that's the point. They believe users, not their ISPs, should be
in charge.
