./net/unbound, DNS resolver and recursive server

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.19.0nb1, Package name: unbound-1.19.0nb1, Maintainer: pettai

Unbound is an implementation of a DNS resolver. It provides a library
similiar to libresolv that can be used for synchronous and asynchronous
DNS lookups. It also provides a caching-only (recursive) DNS server.

Unbound has full support for IPv6 and DNSSEC validation,
DNS-over-TLS and DNS-over-HTTPS.

Log message:
Update net/unbound to version 1.18.0.

Pkgsrc changes:
 * none, other than checksums.

Upstream changes:
This release adds DNS cookies downstream, support to respond with EDE
error codes from cache, NAT64 support, and the capability to use a
socket queue timeout to discard old packets, and other features and bug

The downstream DNS server cookies are from RFC7873 and RFC9018, it
is turned on with `answer-cookie: yes`. It generates a random cookie
secret, but for anycast setups the cookie secret can be configured with
`cookie-secret: "128bithex"` with the same value as the other instances.
Non cookie traffic can be disallowed with the `allow_cookie` acl option
for access-control. Queries with valid cookie bypass the ordinary
ratelimit, but a ratelimit can be configured for cookie queries
with `ip-ratelimit-cookie: 100`. The statistics has counters for
`query_cookie_valid` and `query_cookie_client` and

When queries come in with CD flag, a DNSSEC validation EDE can be
returned, with information regarding a failure. EDE error information
is also stored in the cache with the query responses. There is also EDE
error information stored for the cachedb and the subnetcache.

There is NAT64 support, that is enabled with `do-nat64: yes`. The
NAT64 prefix can be configured too, if not the default
`nat64-prefix: 64:ff9b::0/96`. This is useful for an IPv6 only
host where Unbound is running, so that Unbound can use NAT64 to
connect to IPv4 servers.

The new default for the maximum UDP response size is 1232, with
`max-udp-size: 1232`. This is similar to other resolvers. The new
default is smaller and that makes it harder to get large responses.
Thanks to Xiang Li, from NISL Lab, Tsinghua University.

There is a new option `harden-unknown-additional: yes`. This removes
unknown records from the authority and additional section. This stops
unknown records from being copied from the upstream to the downstream
client, potentially exposing those clients to the extra records. Default
is no, because it could hamper future protocol developments that want to
add records. Thanks to Xiang Li, from NISL Lab, Tsinghua University.

With the `sock-queue-timeout: 3` option kernel timestamps are turned on
for UDP queries, and old packets are dropped. Queries that have waited
in the socket buffer for a long time are then discarded, and is useful
if the host was not running for a while. The statistics has
`num.queries_timed_out` and `query.queue_time_us.max` counters.

The local-zone type `block_a` is for when queries to IPv4 have to be
stopped to force IPv6 usage. It stops type A queries with nodata, and
transparently allows other queries.

The redis server can be contacted over a unix socket with
`redis-server-path: "/var/lib/redis/redis-server.sock"`. The redis
server password can be configured with
`redis-server-password: "password"`.

The number of hashtable collisions is logged in the statistics counters
`msg.cache.max_collisions` and `rrset.cache.max_collisions`. It can be
used to monitor for mistakes where the wrong or same hash value occurs
too frequently.

The repository does not have the bison and flex generated output in it,
so these tools are necessary to compile from a checkout, the tarball
distribution contains pregenerated files and can use either those files
or bison and flex tools on the compile system.

If kernel timestamps are enabled, with the sock-queue-timeout option,
they are also used to set the time for dnstap logs.

There is a yocto compatible init script available in the contrib
directory of the source code, `unbound.init_yocto`.
The number of cachedb hits from cache is output in `num.query.cachedb`.
There is support for the dohpath parameter for the SVCB record type.
Prefetch is supported for subnet cache entries.
Detection of the python paths on the system has been expanded.

Compared to the release candidate rc1, this release has an extra fix to
fix a compile issue on NetBSD.

- Merge #826: #dd a metric about the maximum number of collisions in
- Set max-udp-size default to 1232. This is the same default value as
  the default value for edns-buffer-size. It restricts client edns
  buffer size choices, and makes unbound behave similar to other DNS
  resolvers. The new choice, down from 4096 means it is harder to get
  large responses from Unbound. Thanks to Xiang Li, from NISL Lab,
  Tsinghua University.
- Add harden-unknown-additional option. It removes
  unknown records from the authority section and additional section.
  Thanks to Xiang Li, from NISL Lab, Tsinghua University.
- Merge #819: Added new static zone type block_a to suppress all A
  queries for specific zones.
- Fix #835: [FR] Ability to use Redis unix sockets.
- Fix #833: [FR] Ability to set the Redis password.
- Merge #882 from vvfedorenko: Features/dropqueuedpackets, with
  sock-queue-timeout option that drops packets that have been in the
  socket queue for too long. Added statistics num.queries_timed_out
  and query.queue_time_us.max that track the socket queue timeouts.
- Merge #722 from David 'eqvinox' Lamparter: NAT64 support.
- Fix #888: [FR] Use kernel timestamps for dnstap.
- Merge #903: contrib: add yocto compatible init script.
- Merge #892: Add cachedb hit stat. Introduces 'num.query.cachedb' as
  a new statistical counter.
- Merge #739: Add SVCB dohpath support.
- Merge #802: add validation EDEs to queries where the CD bit is set.
- Merge #664 from tilan7763: Add prefetch support for subnet cache
- Merge #759 from Tom Carpay: Add EDE (RFC8914) caching.
- Merge #790 from Tom Carpay: Add support for EDE caching in cachedb
  and subnetcache.
- Merge PR #762: Downstream DNS Server Cookies a la RFC7873 and
  RFC9018. Create server cookies for clients that send client cookies.
  This needs to be explicitly turned on in the config file with:
  `answer-cookie: yes`. A `cookie-secret:` can be configured for
  anycast setups. Without one, a random cookie secret is generated.
  The acl option `allow_cookie` allows queries with either a valid
  cookie or over a stateful transport. The statistics output has
  `queries_cookie_valid` and `queries_cookie_client` and
  `queries_cookie_invalid` information. The `ip\-ratelimit\-cookie:`
  value determines a rate limit for queries with cookies, if desired.

Log message:
Update net/unbound to version 1.17.0.

Pkgsrc changes:
 * none, other than checksums.

Upstream changes:
This release has new interface acl configuration options. These
allow access-control actions, per interface. Also tags, and views
can be configured per interface, queries over the interface are
answered with these tags and views. It is configured with the
options `interface-action`, `interface-tag`, `interface-tag-action`,
`interface-tag-data` and `interface-view`. If there is also an
access-control setting for the query, this overrides the interface
settings for that query.

The PROXYv2 protocol is supported. It can be configured with the
`proxy-protocol-port: portno` option. It is used to convey the
IP addresses of clients that connect via a proxy to Unbound.

There are also fixes for a number of bugs. In some cases a
blocking wait on a socket could happen, and this has been
fixed. If the upstream sends a TC flag, erroneously, the reply
is ignored and retried. When under load, with the new
NRDelegation fixes from the previous release, there are
mitigations to continue target discovery. There is also a fix
for possible loops in the tcp reuse code.

The release version differs from the RC1, there is a bugfix
for the proxy protocol for tcp read when no proxied addresses
are provided.

- Merge #753: ACL per interface. (New interface-* configuration
- Merge #760: PROXYv2 downstream support. (New proxy-protocol-port
  configuration option).

Bug Fixes
- Fix #728: alloc_reg_obtain() core dump. Stop double
  alloc_reg_release when serviced_create fails.
- Fix edns subnet so that scope 0 answers only match sourcemask 0
  queries for answers from cache if from a query with sourcemask 0.
- Fix unittest for edns subnet change.
- Merge #730 from luisdallos: Fix startup failure on Windows 8.1 due
  to unsupported IPV6_USER_MTU socket option being set.
- Fix ratelimit inconsistency, for ip-ratelimits the value is the
  amount allowed, like for ratelimits.
- Fix #734 [FR] enable unbound-checkconf to detect more (basic)
- Fix to log accept error ENFILE and EMFILE errno, but slowly, once
  per 10 seconds. Also log accept failures when no slow down is used.
- Fix to avoid process wide fcntl calls mixed with nonblocking
  operations after a blocked write.
- Patch from Vadim Fedorenko that adds MSG_DONTWAIT to receive
  operations, so that instruction reordering does not cause mistakenly
  blocking socket operations.
- Fix to wait for blocked write on UDP sockets, with a timeout if it
  takes too long the packet is dropped.
- Fix for wait for udp send to stop when packet is successfully sent.
- Fix #741: systemd socket activation fails on IPv6.
- Fix to update config tests to fix checking if nonblocking sockets
  work on OpenBSD.
- Slow down log frequency of write wait failures.
- Fix to set out of file descriptor warning to operational verbosity.
- Fix to log a verbose message at operational notice level if a
  thread is not responding, to stats requests. It is logged with
  thread identifiers.
- Remove include that was there for debug purposes.
- Fix to check pthread_t size after pthread has been detected.
- Convert tdir tests to use the new skip_test functionality.
- Remove unused testcode/mini_tpkg.sh file.

  rpz_callback_from_iterator_module function.
- Fix to clean up after the acl_interface unit test.
- Merge #764: Leniency for target discovery when under load (for
  NRDelegation changes).
- Use DEBUG_TDIR from environment in mini_tdir.sh for debugging.
- Fix string comparison in mini_tdir.sh.
- Make ede.tdir test more predictable by using static data.
- Fix checkconf test for dnscrypt and proxy port.
- Fix dnscrypt compile for proxy protocol code changes.
- Fix to stop responses with TC flag from resulting in partial
  responses. It retries to fetch the data elsewhere, or fails the
  query and in depth fix removes the TC flag from the cached item.
- Fix proxy length debug output printout typecasts.
- Fix to stop possible loops in the tcp reuse code (write_wait list
  and tcp_wait list). Based on analysis and patch from Prad Seniappan
  and Karthik Umashankar.
- Fix PROXYv2 header read for TCP connections when no proxied addresses
  are provided.
