RpiDNS got new features:

  • recommended RPZ feeds
    • when you create a new RpiDNS recommended RPZ feeds are checked by default;
  • secondary RpiDNS
    • you are able to create a primary RpiDNS and a secondary RpiDNS so the local DNS zone and local RPZs are managed on the primary server and distributed to the secondary.

RpiDNS secondary

If you already using RpiDNS in you network and want to use a secondary RpiDNS you may:

  • update bind's configuration manually to allow updates to the local zone and local RPZs. After that install a secondary RpiDNS;
  • reinstall primary RpiDNS:
    • download DB file;
    • reinstall RpiDNS;
    • replace DB with the old one;
    • toggle all locally created whitelisted and blacklisted indicators;
    • install a secondary RpiDNS.
  • if you don't need any data from DB - just reinstall the primary RpiDNS and install a secondary.

What is ioc2rpz community?

ioc2rpz community is a portal which provides free of charge DNS Firewall (or Response Policy Zone) feeds. The DNS Firewall feeds are based on publicly available threat intelligence(TI). The TI feeds are maintained by 3rd party communities or companies and only a limited number of indicatores were whitelisted. We are not validating the TI feeds on false positives.

DNS Firewall feeds provided "as-is". They may contain false positives.

If you have any questions, comments, proposals or want to provide any feedback please contact us.

What is DNS Firewall?

DNS Firewall or DNS Response Policy Zones is a DNS server feature that allows to overlay custom information on top of the global DNS to provide alternate responses to DNS queries.
The prime motivation for creating this feature was to protect users from badness on the Internet related to known-malicious global identifiers such as host names, domain names, IP addresses, or nameservers.
Criminals tend to keep using the same identifiers until they are taken away from them. Unfortunately, the Internet security industry's ability to take down criminal infrastructure at domain registries, hosting providers or ISPs is not timely enough to be effective.
Using DNS Firewall, a network or DNS administrator can implement their own protection policies base based on reputation feeds from security service providers on a near-real-time basis.
