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....

NEWS 170611
Kernel 4.12-rc4-x86_64-exton is my newest Slackware kernel. Kernel 4.12-rc4 was released by on June 4, 2017.

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

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,...
