*Libreswan* now supports split-DNS configuration for IKEv2 This update of the _libreswan_ packages introduces support for split-DNS configuration for IKEv2 through the "leftmodecfgdns=" and "leftcfgdomains=" options. This enables to reconfigure a locally running DNS server with DNS forwarding for specific private domains.

Description Paul Wouters 2016-01-21 11:13:30 EST
Description of problem:

Improved support for DNS configuration in IKEv2 which also supports DNSSEC.

Comment 2 Paul Wouters 2016-08-31 15:25:07 EDT
Here is a better description from the latest draft:

   This document defines two Configuration Payload Attribute Types for
   the IKEv2 protocol that define sets of private DNS domains which
   should be resolved by DNS servers reachable through an IPsec
   connection, while leaving all other DNS resolution unchanged.  The
   options define the set of DNS domains, DNS nameserver IP addresses
   and DNSSEC trust anchors to use for these DNS domains.  This approach
   of resolving a subset of domains using an IPSec connection is
   referred to as "split-DNS".  The information obtained via these
   attribute types can be used to reconfigure the local DNS resolution
   to use DNS forwarding for specific private domains.
