Stubby

Stubby is the name given to a mode of using getdns which enables it to act as a local DNS Privacy stub resolver (using DNS-over-TLS). Stubby encrypts DNS queries sent from a client machine (desktop or laptop) to a DNS Privacy resolver increasing end user privacy. Stubby is in the early stages of development but is suitable for technical/advanced users. A more generally user-friendly version is on the way!

...

  • Runs as a daemon
  • By default obtains its configuration information from the configuration file at /etc/stubby.conf
  • Can be configured to listen on the loopback address and send all outgoing DNS queries received on that address out over TLS to a DNS Privacy server
  • Can be configured with authentication information for DNS Privacy servers and instructed to use either a 'Strict' or an 'Opportunistic' Profile as described in Authentication and (D)TLS Profile for DNS-over-(D)TLS
