This list contains our public facing Response Policy Zone
Here you can see our RPZ driven Response Policy Zones to be used in your DNS Firewall or by simply switch your DNS Client setting to point to our Firewall DNS server.
The primary zone-file is hosted in the rpz.mypdns.cloud.
This zone is not our primary concern and as a result the default weight for maintaining this record is therefore limited.
safesearch.mypdns.cloud zone is intended to enable SafeSearch in your browser by default by redirecting the ordinary DNS response into a predefined IP-address by search providers like duckduckgo.com or for duckduckgo.com on the tor-network .onion
These records is placed outside the default source folder in safesearch/.
This list have it's very own life, as this is a very very tricky one to maintain.
The reason for that is, it have to balance between what is going on with a domain that for several reasons might be blacklisted on some lists but not on others. It can also be that a domain in general do 99,9% right, but because of it's nature of user based submissions, could do a lot of evil.
Gitlab is 100% user submitted contents, but for the same reason also a widely target from bad guys to host there evil code. For that rightfully reason Gitlab often pop ups on list for malicious code. But as that would have huge influence on our workflow, it's of curse to be whitelisted.
However you are more than welcome to use it :)
Obtain DNS Firewall zones
To obtain a valid copy of our DNS zones you can use several tools. We will here introduce you into the best and most stable ways to do this in preferred order.
The best and most modern way to run a DNS Firewall is by using a good and up to date DNSResolver and have that to automatically fetch our RPZ zones, when the SOA record changes.
Next to these two very powerful DNS resolvers which fully support the use of Response Policy Zones we can recommend Unbound for which we do maintain ready to use zone files in our Unbound Zone files project.
It is worth mentioning that Unbound do work on supporting RPZ-Firewall, but it seems to have a very low priority. See this PullRequest at GH
We don't do much in these severely outdated method of blocking as it is resources extensive, and is adding heavy loads to any systems using these.
Many times Windows completely fails to even start the network as the files are getting to big with to many records. We have therefore decided to nearly completely dish all hosts files, but a few have however been kept alive do to the importance of the records in them. The records within our few hosts formatted sources is cut down to those other project like StevenBlack/hosts leaves out, despite how intrusive these records is to your privacy. An extreme scary example to this could be assets.adobedtm.com which clearly is part of Adobe's AdWare network.
Response Policy Zones
If you only have access to IPv4 Network you'll have to switch the standard DNS port
Please use DNS name
Getting the zones over IPv6 offers you to keep the default DNS server port
Please use DNS name
