DNS vs Traffic Shaping ?


#1

DNS Cloudflare can circumvent the practice of Traffic Shaping of providers or only with the use of VPN can this be done?


#2

This may be possible in the future with the more widespread deployment (and standardization?) of encrypted SNI:

Only thing is the RFC notes in 6.2:

client-facing servers SHOULD NOT require SNI,

As I understand it, it would be fairly easy for traffic shaping to drop the ESNI and force regular SNI connection, still allowing zero-rating or blocking of specific websites. HN Discussion.
