Apps and servers, especially on the Web, have an agenda which does not
include or welcome any interference by any on-path actors such as ISPs,
national security or regulation, or third parties from the supply chain
or from the Internet core. The way the ideal role of on-path actors is
often described by end users or application developers or online service
providers is to say, "I just want you to be a dumb pipe". As of 2019,
operating system developers and network and edge system administrators
are also described this way.

DNS over HTTPS (DoH) and HTTP over QUIC(HTTP/3) now bypass the operating
system's implementation and configuration of DNS, and bypasses the
kernel's implementation of TCP.

At the March 2020 NYC*Bug meeting, Dr. Paul Vixie, CEO of Farsight
Security, will tell the story of how we got here, and what this trend
means for endpoint and network security. FreeBSD and "ipfw" will be used
for demonstration.
