A new tool released by OpenDNS that encrypts the DNS traffic making it safer from manipulation and also hides it from the ISP's prying eyes.

If you're worried about your privacy or about the possible CISPAs/PIPAs here's a very useful tool that has been overlooked by many:

Interesting, they are using ECC crypto for the DNS encryption - similar to what Bitcoin uses for its addresses. Specifically, they mention Curve25519, although I'm not sure how similar the implementations are.
