wgsd

wgsd is a CoreDNS plugin that serves WireGuard peer information via DNS-SD (RFC6763) semantics. This enables dynamic discovery of WireGuard Endpoint addressing (both IP address and port number) with the added benefit of NAT-to-NAT WireGuard connectivity where UDP hole punching is supported.

See this blog post for a deep dive on the underlying techniques and development thought.

Installation

External CoreDNS plugins can be enabled in one of two ways:

  1. Build with compile-time configuration file
  2. Build with external golang source code

For method #2 you can simply go build the contents of cmd/coredns. The resulting binary is CoreDNS server with all the "internal" plugins + wgsd.

% go build
% ./coredns -plugins | grep wgsd
  dns.wgsd

A basic client is available under cmd/wgsd-client.

Configuration Syntax

wgsd ZONE DEVICE

Querying

Following RFC6763 this plugin provides a listing of peers via PTR records at the namespace _wireguard._udp.<zone>. The target for the PTR records is <base32PubKey>._wireguard._udp.<zone> which corresponds to SRV records. SRV targets are of the format <base32PubKey>.<zone>. When querying the SRV record for a peer, the target A/AAAA records will be included in the "additional" section of the response. Public keys are represented in Base32 rather than Base64 to allow for their use in node names where they are treated as case-insensitive by the DNS.

Example

This configuration:

$ cat Corefile
.:5353 {
  wgsd example.com. wg0
}

With the following WireGuard peers:

$ sudo wg show
interface: wg0
  public key: JeZlz14G8tg1Bqh6apteFCwVhNhpexJ19FDPfuxQtUY=
  private key: (hidden)
  listening port: 51820

  endpoint: 203.0.113.1:7777
  allowed ips: 10.0.0.1/32
  latest handshake: 14 hours, 24 minutes, 40 seconds ago
