Playing with Pi-hole [1] and PiVPN [2] on a VPS and learned about the Pi-hole Remote iOS app [3] on the subreddit [4]. Wow, it’s really nice! 😍



Watching this video [1] comparing the malware blocking effectiveness of 3rd party DNS resolvers got me thinking...

For some security focused use cases wouldn't it be valuable if there were a way to leverage multiple DNS resolvers with a strategy where DNS requests are sent to multiple resolvers in parallel and responses are returned only once it's determined that no resolver blocked the request? 🤔


Pros: increased security due to leveraging threat intelligence feeds across multiple providers.

Cons: latency is coupled to the slowest resolver, and decreased privacy due to sending DNS requests to multiple 3rd party resolvers (rather than one or even none w/ something like Unbound).

I wonder if this idea has been implemented anywhere...

Found a blog post related to that comparison video w/ a more fleshed out script to test DNS blocking effectiveness.
