Cloudflare & Apple Push New ODoH DNS Protocol

Cloudflare has publicizing a new DNS protocol known as Oblivious DNS over HTTPS (ODoH). It is designed to protect consumer data from their ISPs. During this age of stolen data, the company feels this is a gap in overall Internet security. ODoH simply separates the IP address from the query so nobody can see both at the same time. In addition to being more secure, the protocol is said to be faster than traditional DNS. Apple and Fastly have partnered with Cloudflare to develop ODoH.
