A week ago, I didn’t even know .dev was a real gTLD. Historically it’s just been the realm of programmers who need a fake domain for testing. The domain never really existed, we just told our computers to pretend it does.
But the .dev gTLD does exist. And guess who owns it?
Suddenly, it all makes sense. Who can decide to make an entire TLD secure?
There is a problem with how the Internet works today:
HTTPS is not secure. Like most "secure" communications protocols, it is susceptible to undetectable public-key substitution MITM-attacks
Netizens do not own their online identities. We either borrow them from companies like twitter, or rent then from organizations like ICANN
These problems arise out of two core Internet protocols: DNS and X.509.
DNSChain offers a free and secure decentralized alternative while remaining backwards compatible with traditional DNS.
