dns64

The dns64 plugin implements the DNS64 IPv6 transition mechanism. From Wikipedia:

DNS64 describes a DNS server that when asked for a domain's AAAA records, but only finds A records, synthesizes the AAAA records from the A records.

The synthesis in only performed if the query came in via IPv6.

TODO

Not all features required by DNS64 are implemented, only basic AAAA synthesis.

  • Resolve PTR records
  • Follow CNAME records
  • Make resolver DNSSEC aware

Syntax

dns64 {
    upstream ADDRESS...
    prefix IPV6
}
  • upstream specifies the upstream resolver.
  • prefix specifies any local IPv6 prefix to use, in addition to the well known prefix (64:ff9b::/96).

Examples

In recursive resolver mode:

# Perform dns64 AAAA synthesizing using 8.8.8.8 for resolving any A 
dns64 {
    upstream 8.8.8.8:53
}
proxy . 8.8.8.8:53

To make DNS64 resolve authoritatively, do:

dns64 {
    upstream localhost:53
    # caveat: additional round trip through networking stack
}
