A DNSCurve Forwarding Name Server

CurveDNS is the first publicly released forwarding implementation that implements the DNSCurve protocol.  DNSCurve uses high-speed high-security elliptic-curve cryptography to drastically improve every dimension of DNS security.  See http://dnscurve.org/ for protocol details.

What is so special about this implementation is the fact that any authoritative DNS name server can act as a DNSCurve capable one, without changing anything on your current DNS environment. The only thing a DNS data manager (that is probably you) has to do is to install CurveDNS on a machine, generate a keypair, and update NS type records that were pointing towards your authoritative name server and let them point to this machine running CurveDNS. Indeed, it is that easy to become fully protected against almost any of the currently known DNS flaws, such as active and passive cache poisoning.

CurveDNS supports:
* Forwarding of regular (non-protected) DNS packets;
* Unboxing of DNSCurve queries and forwarding the regular DNS packets
* Boxing of regular DNS responses to DNSCurve responses;
* Both DNSCurve’s streamlined- and TXT-format;
* Caching of shared secrets;
* Both UDP and TCP;
* Both IPv4 and IPv6.
