Post-Quantum Crypto in DNSSEC

Experimental platform for DNSSEC with post-quantum cryptography

PQ-DNSSEC is an open-source tool set for exploring DNSSEC based on post-quantum cryptography. It includes implementations of authoritative DNS servers and DNS resolvers that support various post-quantum signature schemes as well as tools to evaluate performance and the compatibility of these implementations with the existing DNS infrastructure in the global Internet. PQ-DNSSEC also provides a collection of example zones to the general public. This way, the project will help the DNS community to prepare for transitioning to post-quantum secure DNSSEC.
