Title: System to transport DNS over HTTP using JSON
Document date: 2014-10-15
Group: Individual Submission
This is the SPARTACUS DNS gateway system. It is designed to
facilitate the transport of DNS messages opaquely, across problematic
sections of the Internet. It uses JSON encoding, and HTTP(S) as the
protocol for transport.
The main criteria of SPARTACUS is that it preserve DNS messages
verbatim, and that only properly formatted DNS messages are passed.
There are two modes (so far) defined: DNS forwarder (dns clients
point to a local gateway, which forwards to a remote gateway for
sending to a DNS resolver); and transparent proxy (DNS packets are
intercepted, passed to a local gateway, which sends them to the
remote gateway, with original destination IP address etc. encoded,
and used by the remote gateway as the destination).
DNS messages are NAT-friendly, so changes to IP or UDP headers do not
impact them. Thus, SPARTACUS does not interfere with TSIG, SIG(0),
or Eastlake Cookies.
This document describes the system, the components, and behavior,
