Quad9 DNS: Global Cyber Alliance has launched a new free Domain Name Service resolver with unusually strong security and privacy features.
The Quad9 DNS service, (126.96.36.199) not only converts URIs into IP addresses but also checks them from the IBM X-Force Threat Database. These controls re-protect your browsing on any of 40's billions of malicious sites recorded by X-Force.
The Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) was set up by London Police, the New York District Attorney's Office and the Center for Internet Security as an "international effort to tackle and prevent any malicious cyber activity."
IBM helped the project in two ways: 1988, Big Blue secured the 16.0 million 188.8.131.52 / 8 184.108.40.206 blocks from which XNUMX dedicated.
The Global Cyber Alliance, which oversees the initiative, said the Packet Clearing House gave the system global reach via 70 presence points in 40 countries.
GCA has promised that users' search records will not be leaked and will not be used for commercial or other purposes. "
Quad9 will not "store, correlate or utilize personal data in any other way."
Google has of course promised the same for DNS 220.127.116.11, stating:
"We do not associate or combine information from the temporary or permanent logs with personal information provided to Google."
Note that most home users accept the default configuration offered by their ISP.
The GCA also said it hoped the analyst would attract Internet of Things users because TVs, cameras, video recorders, thermostats or home appliances "often do not receive important security updates".
If you are one of the few lucky people whose ISP offers IPv6, there is also a Quad9 resolver: 2620: fe :: fe (PCH public resolver).
