Servers supporting DNS-over-TLS
The following servers are configured to support TLS on port 853 and STARTTLS on port 53 for testing purposes.
Hosted by the getdns API implementation project at getdnsapi.net (Unbound 1.5.6):
- IP address: 188.8.131.52 and 2a04:b900:0:100::38
- Note this server does not support UDP without DNS Cookies (RFC7873)
- Also note the server does not yet support EDNS0 TCP Keepalive (RFC7828) or out-of-order response processing (RFC7766)
Authoritative test server hosted by Verisign Labs:
- Verisign Labs are kindly hosting a test zone on a server (running a patched version of NSD):
The zone is named dns-over-tls.verisignlabs.com and it has A, AAAA, and TXT records for names from 'L001' to 'L100'.
The IP address of the server is currently 184.108.40.206.
Server key file is available to download here: nsd.key
The zone is signed
- This server also supports TCP fast open
|Server type||Hosted by||IP addresses||Server key||Hostname for TLS authentication||SPKI pin for TLS authentication (RFC7858)|
starttls.verisignlabs.com [Note that this
is a self-signed certificate so does not pass
authentication by default.]
How to Decode TLS packets in Wireshark
If you want to decode the DNS packets in Wireshark (use 1.12.1 or later) to get support TLSv1.2
Obtain the server key file
Configure the key in wireshark in Edit->Preferences
- open the protocol list in the right hand menu and select SSL from the list
- Click on the RSA keys list 'Edit' box and then click on 'New' in the dialog that appears
- Enter remote servers IP address e.g.220.127.116.11 and the port for TLS (1021), and 'http' or 'spdy' for the protocal (DNS is not yet available here).
- Use the Key File selector to choose the key file you downloaded
- Save this by hitting OK, OK and Apply.
- Back in the main window use the Analyze->Decode as... option to choose to decode as SSL
- Click on one of the packets labelled 'Application data' and you should see an additional tab appear in the Packet bytes view window of wireshark labelled "Decrypted SSL data".
