so now Cloudflare:
- hosts website's DNS
- reverse-proxies websites
- runs a DNS over HTTPS resolver
- runs an IPFS gateway

Is it just me, or are they positioning themselves to be able to MITM everything?


@Wolf480pl isn't their job to be a MiTM technically? Like, it's structurally shitty from the start.

@lanodan @bram @Wolf480pl Their goal as a company is to grow and make more money so yeah, expanding towards different markets/technology seems like a good move.
Still waiting for them to offer something related to e-mails now.
@lanodan @bram @Wolf480pl Just as the former NSA director asked "why don't we just collect all of the signals?" someone at Cloudflare might have said "why don't we just MiTM all of the internet?"

@bram yeah, but MITMing one website that asks for it vs MITMing all your DNS, IPFS, and who knows what else, is IMO a difference.

before, you could think that they MITM only to protect you from DDoS.
But now it's obvious that they protect you from DDoS only to be able to MITM you.
