[Stubby - A DNS Privacy enabled stub resolver -- concluded on 2018/09/01]

Stubby is an open source project to develop a DNS stub resolver for use on client devices which will provide DNS Privacy for end users by implementing DNS-over-TLS (RFC7858). This service will provide encrypted first-hop access to DNS services protecting users’ DNS queries from eavesdropping at any point along the path between their device and a privacy-enabling DNS server.

An experimental implementation of Stubby (developed by the getdns team as part of the DNS Privacy project) is already available. The project now aims to mature Stubby and significantly improve usability thereby increasing uptake of Stubby among non-technical users.

The project is run by Sinodun Internet Technologies, UK

Stubby is supported by NLnet and the Internet Hardening Fund.
