Default Local DNS Resolver Proposed for Fedora 23 Linux

The “Default Local DNS Resolver” proposal will be a system-wide change for Fedora Linux, as the need for a trusted Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) validating local resolver running on 127.0.0.1:53 is currently in much higher than expected. The implementation of a local DNS resolver in Fedora 23, which must be trusted for DNSSEC validations running on localhost on port 53, will be in the /etc/resolv.conf file, as the only name server entry.
