Welcome to the DNS Privacy project home page

This site is the result 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)
  • 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).

Current contributors to this project include Sinodun IT, NLnet Labs and No Mountain Software. NLnet Foundation have also provided a donation to this work.
