durum (named after https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durum) is the web application that will power check.wikimedia-dns.org, the check service for Wikidough.
This service will allow users to test if they have configured Wikidough in their stub resolver for DoH or DoT, and is similar to https://dnsleaktest.com and https://22.214.171.124/help. Since we cannot recommend external services for a project like Wikidough, we decided to design and deploy our own to solve the problem of finding out the recursor a user has configured. As of now, a user has no way of finding out if they have configured Wikidough, other than using the third-party websites above, or capturing their traffic, neither of which is ideal.
This task tracks the development and deployment of durum, both in its web application form and the related Puppet configurations.
