Re: OpenNIC, DNSCrypt and DNSSEC

The OpenNIC servers list shows which servers support DNSCrypt: (yellow flag) https://servers.opennicproject.org/ Any DNS server that has been updated in the last 5 years is DNSSEC _aware_, but DNSSEC validating is a different story. Currently I'm not aware of anywhere that lists ones that do validat...

Re: Everything is moderated?

Yes. Newly registered users are moderated, I think until they get 5 approved posts. Generally I remove people from newly registered once they make a non-spam post.
Sadly, it's pretty much the only way to not get swarmed by spam

Re: Is this forum still alive ?

It's been pretty abandoned the last little while, but I think it can be re-opened

Re: FreeNIC Partnership Opinions

"OpenNIC's IRC server" should be "#opennic on FreeNode" for clarity, although I think everyone will know what you're talking about either way. I like this idea, FreeNIC grew out of OpenNIC, there's no reason for the communities to be divided. We can and in my opinion should work ...

Re: Root Key Storage

Regarding the PGP keys, that's a nice idea. Use an RP record with the operator's email and his key in the associated TXT record. I'm personally onboard with this idea with 2 small caveats: 1) We should bash it around some more, until we have a complete plan and maybe some of the infrastructure in pl...

Re: Root Key Storage

The main advantages I see to splitting the password instead of the key: 1) It's easier to apply generic redundancy setups to a couple of chars in a string than it is for a fragment of a key. It's also easier to memorize. 2) If part of the key is lost, that's the end of it. If part of the password is...

Re: Root Key Storage

I'll offer an alternative option: encrypt the key and have the password split up. There are schemes that can be used so that only a certain number of the keyholders need to be present, that way someone can be away without blocking everything, but still requires consensus to function.

Re: OpenNIC emails

I'll ask the stupid question, do you have an MX record set up for your domain?

Re: Keep an eye on your bandwidth graphs

Perhaps this solution is naive; I myself am not a DNS operator. I am, though, an extremely grateful user of OpenNIC & take an interest in helping if & when I possibly am able. That being said, would something such as an ip black hole list auto-updated & integrated within one's preferred...
