Scheme name: sdns

Status: Provisional

Applications/protocols that use this scheme name: stub DNS resolvers and DNS proxies

Contact: Frank Denis <ietf@dnscrypt.info>

Change controller: Frank Denis <ietf@dnscrypt.info>

References: https://dnscrypt.info/stamps-specifications/

Scheme syntax: sdns://<base64 encoded parameters>

Scheme semantics:
The scheme is used to encode parameters required for a DNS client to
securely connect to an upstream server, in a protocol-independent way.

Encoding consideration:
URIs are guaranteed to only contain characters from the URL-safe variant of Base64.

Interoperability considerations: None

Security considerations:
Clients must verify the authenticity and integrity of URIs before using them.
