June 2014

  • Start work on Unbound - understand current SSL-upstream implementation
  • From Willem: LDNS does not have support for asynchronous operation so in the short term it will probably be used in getdns just in synchronous mode so that the implementation of TDNS can continue. 
  • Further work on test framework

May 2014

  • Current getdns stub implementation cannot support sending of CH class queries as it uses libunbound which denies the query and never sends it onwards. Discussed in getnds meeting 19th May that further implementation of T-DNS in getdns will have to wait until libunbound is replaced with ldns for the stub mode. Current understanding is that Willem is going to tackle this in the next few weeks. 
  • Identified need to support CH class in getdns for dummy STARTTLS query. Start on implementation of this.
    • This implementation highlighted the need for getdns to gracefully handle refused queries that have no associated data.
  • Created test harness to create a dummy STARTTLS query
  • Agreed that initial implementations will use the dummy CH class query (not the TO bit)
  • Forked getdns. Familiarisation with getdns code base - get it to install and run!
  • Kick off meetings with T-DNS and getdns teams
  • Creation of project issue tracker and wiki site
  • Reading of relevant drafts and documentation - capture any early technical questions
