DNS over HTTPS Tech Webinar – How to upgrade existing DNS Resolver

eco – Association of the Internet Industry

invites you to a DNS over HTTPS Policy and Technical Webinar Bundle.

Encrypted DNS via "DNS-over-HTTPS" and "DNS-over-TLS" are important extensions of the DNS protocol. These new extensions are controversially discussed, but every operator of DNS resolver services should consider whether DoH and DoT could be sensibly offered for these services. In September eco has published a discussion paper on this topic including recommendations for operators of DNS services.

In this workshop we will show how the DNS Loadbalancer PowerDNS "dnsdist" can be used to extend any existing DNS resolver (BIND 9, Unbound, PowerDNS Recursor, Microsoft DNS etc.) with DoH and DoT. Existing DNS security mechanisms such as Response Policy Zones will be preserved.

Best practices for the operation of DNS resolvers with DoH and DoT (e.g. EDNS Client Subnet) will be discussed. After the workshop participants will be familiar with the basics of DoH and DoT, and the implementation by means of "dnsdist".

Tech Webinar:

On Thursday 26 November (16:30pm CEST /  14:30pm UTC, 90 minutes), Lars Steffen will host a technical hands-on workshop webinar on how to implement DNS over HTTPS in BIND 9 with DNS Expert Carsten Strotmann (sys4 AG).

Policy Webinar:

On Tuesday 10 November (15:30pm CEST / 13:30pm UTC, 60 minutes), Patrick Koetter (Heads of the Competence Groups Email & Anti-Abuse), Thomas Rickert (Director Names & Numbers Forum) and Lars Steffen (Director eco International) will present the Discussion Paper focusing on the following aspects and key take-aways:

  • What is DNS over HTTPS (DoH)?
  • Benefits of DNS Encryption
  • State of the controversy
  • Conclusions of the debate of the pros and cons of DoH and strategies to mitigate risks
  • Why a discussion paper and not a position paper?
