here's the respective ticket open in Bugzilla: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1535235
Oh wow, DoH sucks more than I thought
"The DoH server is given with a host name that itself needs to be resolved. This initial resolve needs to be done by the native resolver before DoH kicks in."
so basically, we have that:
- a DNS-over-HTTPS servers needs to be found with good old DNS, which could give out a fake IP and thus still see all of your web traffic
- a secure DoH connection still leaks which pages you visit, and its fix (ESNI) has to be supported by each web server and client
- even with a secure DoH + ESNI, you're *still* leaking which pages you visit due to an unencrypted unique ID code (sent by OCSP)
@espectalll Well, for example 22.214.171.124 has a https certificate. So one can visit https://126.96.36.199/ and it's a valid certificate. So if you enter that IP you don't need to resolve it over DNS.
Same can be done with any IP with a certificate.
@sa0bse I expect it because people want easy things, and it's easier to remember a few words than a bunch of digits (188.8.131.52 being rather an exception, and we're not even talking IPv6)
but yeah, it is silly
@sa0bse (also those digits may change)
