Warning

As this page deals with DNS it has the potential to break your internet access! Ensure you have stable live media that can restore your system.

DNScrypt provides encryption from clients to upstream DNS servers. Encrypting this traffic prevents spying, spoofing, and other man in the middle attacks.

Installation

# emerge dnscrypt-proxy


Configuration

By default opendns is used, although some opennic servers support dnscrypt.

/etc/conf.d/dnscrypt-proxy controls settings for DNScrypt. A list of resolvers has been compiled for use with DNScrypt.

/etc/resolv.conf - set dns server as dnscrypt-proxy
nameserver 127.0.0.1

Service

# rc-update add dnscrypt-proxy default
# rc


Testing

If you're using opendns, this welcome page will tell if your encrypted or not.

If you're using any other encryption enabled dns servers, give them a leak test. they should only report the dns servers associated with the one you chosen from the list.
