trust-dns Build Status

A Rust based DNS client and server, built to be safe and secure from the ground up.


  • Build a safe and secure DNS server and client with modern features.
  • Use Threads to allow all code to panic! and fail fast, without taking down the server.
  • Use only safe Rust, and avoid all panics with proper Error handling
  • Use only stable Rust
  • Protect against DDOS attacks (to a degree)
  • Support options for Global Load Balancer functions
  • Build in a nice REST interface for managing server?


WARNING!!! Under active development! Do not attempt to use in any production systems.

The client now supports timeouts (thanks mio!). Currently hardcoded to 5 seconds, I'll make this configurable if people ask for that, but this allows me to move on.

The server code is complete, the daemon is currently in progress. Once this is done the plan is to start self-host on the trust-dns software.



  • Why are you building another DNS server?

Because I've gotten tired of seeing the security advisories out there for BIND. Using Rust semantics it should be possible to develop a high performance and safe DNS Server that is more resilient to attacks.
