    With interesting new ephemeral keying option:

    More info about it:
    "DNSCrypt is about authentication, not secrecy. If you are using it for privacy, it might do the opposite of what you are trying to achieve.

    It verifies that responses you get from a DNS provider have been actually sent by that provider. But providers receive queries that include your public key, and can use it to track you even if your public IP changes. Version 1.5.0 introduces ephemeral keys in order to mitigate that."

    DNSCrypt 1.60 (released 18 Jul 2015)
    • New feature: public-key based client authentication (-K), for private and commercial DNS services to securely authenticate the sender of a query no matter what the source IP address is, without altering the DNS query.
    • On Windows, paths are now relative to the application folder. Which means that the -L option is usually not required any more if the CSV file is in the same folder as the dnscrypt-proxy executable. Full paths to plugins are not required any more either; plugin names can be given directly.

    But DNSCrypt 2.0 is coming.



    If there is an interest in bringing DNSCrypt and Unbound together I wrote an guide over here.
