Mozilla has announced that Comcast has joined its Trusted Recursive Resolver program which aims to make DNS (domain name system) more trusted and secure. Cloudflare and NextDNS are already part of the TRR program and provide their DNS services to Firefox users who opt to use DNS over HTTPS (DoH).
Commenting on the move, Firefox CTO Eric Rescorla, said:
“Comcast has moved quickly to adopt DNS encryption technology and we’re excited to have them join the TRR program. Bringing ISPs into the TRR program helps us protect user privacy online without disrupting existing user experiences. We hope this sets a precedent for further cooperation between browsers and ISPs.”
