doh-proxy

A DNS-over-HTTPS Proxy

DNS Over HTTPS Proxy

Build Status PyPI version

A set of python 3 scripts that supports proxying DNS over HTTPS as specified in the IETF Draft draft-ietf-doh-dns-over-https.

DOH provides a way to run encrypted DNS over HTTPS, a protocol which can freely traverse firewalls when other encrypted mechanism may be blocked.

The project comes with a set of 4 tools:

See the CONTRIBUTING file for how to help out.

DOH Proxy was created during IETF Hackathon 100 as a proof-of-concept and is not used at Facebook.

You are welcome to use it, but be aware that support is limited and best-effort.

Installing

To install an already packaged version directly from PyPi:

$ pip3 install doh-proxy

Usage

doh-proxy

doh-proxy is a stand alone server answering DOH request. The proxy does not do DNS recursion itself and rather forward the query to a full-featured DNS recursive server or DNS caching server.

By running doh-proxy, you can get and end-to-end DOH solution with minimal setup.

$ sudo doh-proxy \
    --upstream-resolver=::1 \
    --certfile=./fullchain.pem \
    --keyfile=./privkey.pem

doh-httpproxy

doh-httpproxy is designed to be running behind a reverse proxy. In this setup a reverse proxy such as NGINX would be handling the HTTPS/HTTP2 requests from the DOH clients and will forward them to doh-httpproxy backends.

While this setup requires more upfront setup, it allows running DOH proxy unprivileged and on multiple cores.

$ sudo doh-httpproxy \
    --upstream-resolver=::1 \
    --port 8080 \
    --listen-address ::1

doh-httpproxy now also supports TLS, that you can enable passing the args --certfile and --keyfile (just like doh-proxy)

doh-stub

doh-stub is the piece of software that you would run on the clients. By providing a local DNS server, doh-stub will forward the DNS requests it receives to a DOH server using an encrypted link.

You can start a stub resolver with:

$ doh-stub \
    --listen-port 5553 \
    --listen-address ::1 \
    --domain foo.bar \
    --remote-address ::1

and query it.

$ dig @::1 -p 5553 example.com

doh-client

doh-client is just a test cli that can be used to quickly send a request to a DOH server and dump the returned answer.

$ doh-client  \
    --domain dns.dnsoverhttps.net \
    --qname sigfail.verteiltesysteme.net \

Development

Requirements

Building

DOH Proxy uses Python’setuptools to manage dependencies and build.

To install its dependencies:

$ python3 setup.py develop

To build:

$ python3 setup.py build

To run unittests:

$ python3 setup.py test

To run the linter:

$ python3 setup.py flake8
# Also run flake8 on the testing files
$ flake8 test

From within the root of the repository, you can test the proxy, stub and client respectively by using the following commands:

$ sudo PYTHONPATH=. ./dohproxy/proxy.py ...
$ PYTHONPATH=. ./dohproxy/httpproxy.py ...
$ PYTHONPATH=. ./dohproxy/stub.py ...
$ PYTHONPATH=. ./dohproxy/client.py ...
