Episode 37: DNS security with Quad9

What are you doing to make the internet a safer and more private place?

This episode, Robby welcomes John Todd, Executive Director of the non-profit organisation Quad9. Quad9 is a free, recursive DNS solution that partners with threat intelligence providers from all over the world to block websites that try to harm our computers (through things like malware, spyware, botnets, phishing sites, etc.).

John chats with Robby about their DNS system, how they’re different from most paid services, and their charter to making the internet a safer and more private place. He also shares some war stories and discusses what effects they’re seeing from COVID-19 in their feed.
