DNS over TLS setup on Turris Omnia using Knot DNS Resolver

By Posted in - Blog on July 14th, 2018 0 Comments

Information extracted from here.

Go to Forris DNS tab and make sure that “Use forwarding” is not checked, save.

Grab and convert the needed ssh certificate into Omnia. From /root :

wget https://www.digicert.com/CACerts/DigiCertECCSecureServerCA.crt

openssl x509 -inform der -in DigiCertECCSecureServerCA.crt -out DigiCertECCSecureServerCA.pem

Copy the pem file into /etc/ssl/certs

cp DigiCertECCSecureServerCA.pem /etc/ssl/certs/DigiCertECCSecureServerCA.pem

Create the configuration file /etc/kresd/custom.conf with content:

{'', hostname='cloudflare-dns.com', ca_file='/etc/ssl/certs/DigiCertECCSecureServerCA.pem'},
{'', hostname='cloudflare-dns.com', ca_file='/etc/ssl/certs/DigiCertECCSecureServerCA.pem'}

The resolver needs to know where to find the rule, so edit /etc/config/resolver, adding the following line at the end of the config resolver ‘kresd’ section

option include_config ‘/etc/kresd/custom.conf’

Restart the resolver with the following command:

/etc/init.d/resolver restart

You are all done. You should be using dns over tls via Cloudflare’s

One can confirm this fact by testing for DNS leaks -> dnsleaktest.com
