dnscrypt-proxy  2.0.21
About: DNSCrypt encrypts all DNS traffic between the user and a DNS resolver, preventing any spying, spoofing or man-in-the-middle attacks (supports modern encrypted DNS protocols such as DNSCrypt v2 and DNS-over-HTTP/2). Hint: Version 2 is rewritten in Go (version 1 is written in C).

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies dnscrypt-proxy-2.0.21.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

DNSCrypt-Proxy Release Build Status #dnscrypt-proxy:matrix.org

Overview

A flexible DNS proxy, with support for modern encrypted DNS protocols such as DNSCrypt v2 and DNS-over-HTTPS.

Download the latest release

Available as source code and pre-built binaries for most operating systems and architectures (see below).

Features

  • DNS traffic encryption and authentication. Supports DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) using TLS 1.3, and DNSCrypt.
  • DNS query monitoring, with separate log files for regular and suspicious queries
  • Filtering: block ads, malware, and other unwanted content. Compatible with all DNS services
  • Time-based filtering, with a flexible weekly schedule
  • Transparent redirection of specific domains to specific resolvers
  • DNS caching, to reduce latency and improve privacy
  • Local IPv6 blocking to reduce latency on IPv4-only networks
  • Load balancing: pick a set of resolvers, dnscrypt-proxy will automatically measure and keep track of their speed, and balance the traffic across the fastest available ones.
  • Cloaking: like a HOSTS file on steroids, that can return preconfigured addresses for specific names, or resolve and return the IP address of other names. This can be used for local development as well as to enforce safe search results on Google, Yahoo and Bing.
  • Automatic background updates of resolvers lists
  • Can force outgoing connections to use TCP
  • Supports SOCKS proxies
  • Compatible with DNSSEC
