Welcome to the DNS Privacy project home page

This site is the home of a collaborative open project to promote, implement and deploy DNS Privacy. The goals of this project include:

  • Raising awareness of the issue of DNS Privacy
  • Empowering users to take advantage of DNS Privacy tools and resources (client applications, DNS Privacy resolvers)
  • Evolving the DNS to support DNS Privacy in particular developing new DNS Protocol standards
  • Working towards full support for DNS Privacy in a range of Open Source DNS implementations including: getdns, Unbound, NSD, BIND and Knot (Auth and Resolver)
  • Co-ordinating deployment of DNS Privacy services and documenting operational practices

Among the many contributors to this project are Sinodun IT, NLnet Labs, SalesForce, Surftnet, NLnet Foundation, OTF, Stephane Borztmeyer and No Mountain Software.
