Securely send DNS requests to a remote server
dnscrypt-proxy is a tool for securing communications between a client and a DNS resolver. It verifies that responses you get from a DNS provider was actually sent by that provider, and haven't been tampered with. For optimal performance it is recommended to use this as a forwarder for a caching DNS resolver such as
dnsmasq, but it can also be used as a normal DNS "server". A list of public dnscrypt servers is included, and an up-to-date version is available at https://download.dnscrypt.org/dnscrypt-proxy/dnscrypt-resolvers.csv.
