SnitchDNS : Database Driven DNS Server With A Web UI

SnitchDNS is a database driven DNS Server with a Web UI, written in Python and Twisted, that makes DNS administration easier with all configuration changed applied instantly without restarting any system services.

One of its main features is the logging of all DNS queries allowing the discovery of network traffic endpoints, and it can also be used to implement canary tokens as it supports notifications via e-mail, web push, Slack, and Teams. Red teamers can also use SnitchDNS to monitor phishing domains for sandboxes, integrate with SIEM solutions, restrict responses to specific IP ranges, egress data via a DNS tunnel and catch-all domains, and more.

Dependencies

  • Python 3.6+

Installation

Please make sure you install using git rather than by downloading the repo manually.

    • Unmatched Record Forwarding.
      • Functionality to intercept specific queries (ie only A and CNAME) and forward all other records to a third-party DNS server (ie Google).
    • Tags and Aliases.

    • CSV Logging for SIEM integration.
  • Swagger 2.0 API
  • Deployment
    • Ansible scripts for Ubuntu 18.04 / 20.04
    • Docker

Use Cases

  • SnitchDNS can be used for:
    • A DNS Forwarding Server – Allowing you to monitor all requests via a Web GUI.
    • Red Teams – Implement IP restrictions to block sandboxes, monitor phishing domain resolutions and e-mails, and restrict access to known IP ranges.
    • DNS Tunnel – Log all DNS requests and egress data.
    • Let’s Encrypt DNS Challenge, using the API or the CLI interface.
    • Ad-blocking.
    • Canary Tokens.
    • Integrate with SIEM solutions.

For more details on scenarios please see the Use Cases Document

Limitations

  • Caching has not been implemented, which means this isn’t suitable for environments with hundreds of DNS requests per
  • minute.
