OpenDNS has launched a brand new service named DNSCrypt in preview for the users of Mac OS X platform.
The company said that this service would ensure that the DNS connections from your machine to their servers would be fully secured.
The idea is to prevent eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attacks by converting regular DNS traffic into encrypted DNS traffic.
This sounds like a very good idea and if implemented well can enhance the security of your internet connectivity massively.
DNSCrypt has the potential to be the most impactful advancement in Internet security since SSL, significantly improving every single Internet user’s online security and privacy.
The company aims to release a Windows edition of this app in the near future. For now, Mac users can test it out.
