I plan to create security policy rules to block dns-over-https and dns-over-tls. Is it also recommended to block dnscrypt?
In regards to dns-over-https. If the browser attempts this and fails, does it fallback to using the client's configured dns servers?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Reason for blocking is corporate policy is to allow dns requests from internal DNS servers only. Also, they both create security risks that could allow tunneling of malicious traffic and also could potentially bypass your security policies
Palo Alto also recommends blocking.
You don't believe they should be blocked? I'd like to hear your reasons
@ce1028 i do believe in blocking them, but under the right circumstances
my first preference is to block all outbound DNS except the outbound connections from my inhouse DNS server for which i would force tls/https as much as possible (for privacy reasons)
in a second scenario, if there is no internal DNS i would encourage dns-over-tls/https as this provides more privacy
from the firewall you can ssl decrypt to still look inside and make sure there are not threats, but an outside listener should not be able to pick up on my dns traffic
I agree your assessment. I'm all for encrypted dns, but I want all my dns requests coming from my internal dns servers, as you stated.
However, I thought dns-over-https uses certificate pinning, which would not allow it to be decrypted?
