DNSCrypt-Proxy is a tool for securing communications between a client and a DNS resolver. It provides a local service which can be used directly as your local resolver or as a DNS forwarder, encrypting and authenticating requests using the DNSCrypt protocol and passing them to an upstream server. By default dnscrypt-proxy is configured to use OpenDNS' servers.

SLAAC SECURITY EXTENSIONS

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/IPv6

Privacy extensions

When a client acquires an address through SLAAC its IPv6 address is derived from the advertised prefix and the MAC address of the network interface of the client. This may raise security concerns as the MAC address of the computer can be easily derived by the IPv6 address. In order to tackle this problem the IPv6 Privacy Extensions standard (RFC 4941) has been developed....

Slackware 14.2-Dnsmasq-2.77-Dnssec-Dnscrypt-Part-1

Posted 06-08-2017 at 11:21 AM by arniekat

Source - Dnsmasq Manpage, ArchLinux Wiki

In this tutorial, we will configure dnsmasq with dnssec and dnscrypt-proxy along with Adblocking. What happens is you configure dnsmasq to use 3 (three) instances of dnscrypt-proxy. In their turn, the dnscrypt-proxy servers MUST be DNSSEC-Enabled, thus enabling the dnssec extensions. Then you will also create a dnsmasq-formatted hosts file at /etc/dnsmasq.d/adblock.nsakey.20170526 which will contain approximately 70,000 entries with adservers,...

Slackware-14.1-Squid 3.4.11 Native ACL URL Filtering

Posted 02-11-2015 at 09:54 PM by arniekat
Updated 02-11-2015 at 10:44 PM by arniekat

Squid is a Caching Proxy Server that reduces bandwidth, improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages so you have a faster Web Experience. Normally, if you wish to do URL Filtering, in other words, blocking by Web Address, you should use SquidGuard or UfdbGuard or DansGuardian to do so since they are specifically made to do URL Filtering more efficiently than the native Squid ACL. However, for those who can't or won't use the other applications, Squid can be configured...
