The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical naming system that allows Internet users to use names instead of having to remember numeric IP addresses.

DNS queries are transmitted in plain text and can reveal not only which websites a person visits, but also data about other services provided on certain domains. This facilitates the collection of sensitive user information for unwanted purposes.

In order to improve privacy in DNS, several protocols such as DNS Query Name Minimisation (Qname), DNS-over-TLS (DoT), DNS over Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS), DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH), and other ideas under development such as DNS-over-Quic (DoQ).

In this panel on DNS Privacy we will exchange views on the benefits and risks that could arise from the massive use of these protocols.
