NAME¶dnss - DNS over HTTPS
DESCRIPTION¶dnss is a daemon that can encapsulate DNS over HTTPS.
It can act as a DNS-to-HTTPS proxy, using https://dns.google.com as a server or anything implementing the same API.
It can also act as an HTTPS-to-DNS proxy, implementing the same HTTP API; you can use this instead of https://dns.google.com if you want more control over the servers and the final DNS server used (for example if you are in an isolated environment, such as a test lab or a private network).
In the default mode of operation, it listens for DNS requests on port 53, and will query an HTTPS server (https://dns.google.com by default) to resolve them.
