Description

Dnscrypt-proxy is an OpenDNS encrypted DNS client. DNS queries are encrypted with this client.

The package is here: https://github.com/opendns/dnscrypt-proxy . Builds are ready for linux. It should take no more than a few minutes to port this sucker on into the OpenWrt package system.

Keep up the good work!

There is already the ddns-scripts package that supports all kind of dynamic DNS services...

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by anonymous

This isn't a dynamic DNS service. It is a proxy server that encrypts DNS queries sent to OpenDNS. e.g. DNS query for 'google.com' gets encrypted

That was me in the last post.

I should have used better terminology in my original report, that's likely what confused you and had you dismiss this package request.

The dnscrypt-proxy package sets up a DNS server that encrypts DNS queries and transmits them on to the OpenDNS servers (the client part). It's basically an encrypted tunnel to the DNS server. I hope its clear now. I know encrypted DNS isn't something most people have heard of, but it exists.

It authenticates DNS queries to any dnscrypt-enabled servers, not just OpenDNS. There is an opensource server-side implementation, too.

This has all be done by a third-party here (OpenWrt package + install instructions):
http://wiki.openwrt.org/inbox/dnscrypt

A proper patch was submitted, and got apparent approval here:
http://patchwork.openwrt.org/patch/2389/

Why this isn't in the package repository, who knows.
