IPv6 DNS lookup
« on: February 07, 2017, 09:45:05 AM »

How about doing a DNS lookup using IPv6.

In order to do this, one would need a DNS zone that is deliberately NOT delegated to, on a server that only accepts IPv6 requests.  Then the testee would fetch something from the server, and enter that as evidence of test completion. 

I suggest that it be a TXT record, using a domain name like <username>.hurricane-electric-certification-test.  and that the value be a nonce, followed by a hash of the nonce, username, and a secret shared between the dns server and the test server.  This would prevent sharing answers, or taking too long to enter the answer.
