Description of Working Group:

  This working group will standardize encodings for DNS queries and responses
  that are suitable for use in HTTPS. This will enable the domain name system to
  function over certain paths where existing DNS methods (UDP, TLS [RFC 7857],
  and DTLS [RFC 8094]) experience problems.

  The working group will re-use HTTPS methods, error codes, and other semantics
  to the greatest extent possible.  The use of HTTPS and its existing PKI
  provides integrity and confidentiality, and it also allows interoperation
  with common HTTPS infrastructure and policy.

  The primary focus of this working group is to develop a mechanism that
  provides confidentiality and connectivity between DNS clients (e.g., operating
  system stub resolvers) and recursive resolvers.  While access to
  DNS-over-HTTPS servers from JavaScript running in a typical web browser is not
  the primary use case for this work, precluding the ability to do so would
  require additional preventative design. The working group will not engage in
  such preventative design.

  The working group will analyze the security and privacy issues that
  could arise from accessing DNS over HTTPS. In particular, the working
  group will consider the interaction of DNS and HTTP caching.

  The working group will coordinate with the DNSOP and INTAREA working groups
  for input on DNS-over-HTTPS's impact on DNS operations and DNS semantics,
  respectvely. In particular, DNSOP will be consulted for guidance on the
  operational impacts that result from traditional host behaviors (i.e.,
  stub-resolver to recursive-resolver interaction) being replaced with the
  specified mechanism.

  Specification of how DNS-formatted data may be used for use cases beyond
  normal DNS queries is out of scope for the working group.

  The working group may define mechanisms for discovery of DOH servers
  similar to existing mechanisms for discovering other DNS servers if
  the chairs determine that there is both sufficient interest and
  working group consensus.

  The working group will use draft-hoffman-dispatch-dns-over-https as input.

Goals and Milestones:
  Apr 2018 - Submit specification for performing DNS queries over HTTPS to the IESG for publication as PS
