The IETF 101 meeting is in London, and while I’m not going to the entire meeting, I thought it would be nice to go to the hackathon and work on Go DNS a bit.
This hackathon takes place in the weekend (and is free of charge, you’ll only need to register), so
this leaves two days of
hacking^W careful coding.
I’m planning to work on the following bits:
- Implement DOH (DNS over HTTPs). Go DNS already implements DNS over TLS, so this shouldn’t be too hard (famous last words). The plan here would be:
- Extend the
Netvalue in both Client and Server to include
- Testing the client against one of the existing server implementations.
- Getting Server side support going.
- Unit tests
- Time permitting implement gRPC in Go DNS in a “plug in my own transport” fashion. We use gRPC in CoreDNS and having it move to Go DNS would make life simpler. Of course DNS over gRPC is not a standard, so this needs to be pluggeable (there is not exact plan for this).
- As these things all use TCP, it might also be worth looking a connection pooling. This is
implemented in a CoreDNS plugin, called
- Check if it makes sense to do in the Go DNS library.
- Make a plan.
