Technical Summary

  This document defines a protocol for performing DNS Queries over an HTTPS
  connection.  This protocol offers similar security benefits to DNS-over-TLS
  (RFC 7858), and also allows integration with HTTP-based systems and

Working Group Summary

  The document has been reviewed thoroughly within the working group,
  including extensive commentary by noted standards experts and large-scale
  implementors in DNS and HTTP.

Document Quality

  Implementation has begun, with a large-scale deployment by Cloudflare,
  experiments by Mozilla and Google, and many independent implementations:
  doh-proxy (an IETF hackathon output), Go DNS, dnscrypt-proxy,
  doh-php-client, jDnsProxy, rust-doh, and dns-over-https.  The maintainers of
  Stubby, CURL, and PowerDNS’s dnsdist have developed working prototypes.

  This draft has a single IANA consideration (defining the
  “application/dns-message” media type).  There has been extensive review of
  this media type.
