The GNU Name System 

Motivation

The Domain Name System today enables traffic amplification attacks, censorship (i.e. China), mass surveillance (MORECOWBELL) and offensive cyber war (QUANTUMDNS).
Unfortunately, band aid solutions such as DoT, DoH, DNSSEC, DPRIVE and the like will not fix this. This is why we built the GNU Name System (GNS), a secure, decentralized name system built on top of GNUnet.

Overview

The GNU Name System (GNS) is a decentralized database that enables users to securely resolve names to values. Names can be used to identify other users (for example, in social networking), or network services (for example, VPN services running at a peer in GNUnet, or purely IP-based services on the Internet). Users interact with GNS by typing in a hostname that ends in a top-level domain that is configured in the “GNS” section, matches an identity of the user or ends in a Base32-encoded public key.
