What woohoo pDNS is

woohoo pDNS is a database to store and query passive DNS data. It is written in Python 3 and aims to support data collected by the SiLK NetSA security suite although it can work with other source data as well.

In addition, it has a Web GUI component that can be installed separately.

If you want to know in more detail what (a) passive DNS (data(base)) is, the FAQ on the Farsight Security website is a valid resource to read up on the topic.

What woohoo pDNS is not

woohoo pDNS is not optimised for speed. It is geared towards small-ish installations (read: up to a couple of thoundand inserts per minute?).
