Security is at the forefront of what we do at DNSFilter, and is always on everyone's minds these days, so I'm sure you may have heard of two different methods of "secure" DNS - DNS over HTTPS (DoH), and DNS over TLS (DoT)
DoH is at the forefront right now because it’s what Google uses, but it’s not necessarily better than DoT. It’s just different, and in some ways, it’s actually inferior to DoT.
DoT is actually a more efficient method because of the layer within the TCP/IP model it is enabled in.
Remember, DoH is two layers removed from the internet layer while DoT is only one layer removed.
