DNSpython on debian installation

To use dns lookups in python scripts on your raspberry or any other debian / ubuntu based system, dnspython is the perfect point to start.

Howto:

sudo apt-get install python-pip
pip install dnspython

Then try the examples on : http://www.dnspython.org/examples.html

Example Python script:

#!/usr/local/bin/python
import dns.resolver
domain = dns.name.from_text(dns_to_look)
nameserver = '8.8.8.8' #this is google nameserver, use your fav. DNS server
query = dns.message.make_query("google.com", dns.rdatatype.ANY)
response = dns.query.udp(query, nameserver, timeout = 2)
print response

Will result in:

python dns_test.py
id 41318
opcode QUERY
rcode NOERROR
flags QR RD RA

You can now use the script in your own scripts to search for DNS results.

To find some examples for ussage of DNS python see the example page of the project: http://www.dnspython.org/examples.html.
I am using the script to check the DNS settings for domains found with other tools that I am running. You could also store the DNS entries for your requests and build your database, that would result in a „low cost passive DNS database“.
