I wrote a HOWTO for DNS/DNSSEC over Tor with unbound+socat (IMHO if you're using
unbound, drop ttdnsd altogether):


Click 'English' on top of the page if you get Czech version (it takes language
preferences from headers sent by browser; Referer sending must enabled in
browser in order the language switch to work).

I'm also working now on DNS/DNSSEC as Tor hidden service over TLS, I'll post the
HOWTO in couple of days.

The above proposal/implementation will take a while to finish, I've run into
some technical quirks that need to be resolved (in order to have it working
reasonably fast and not shoot yourself in foot with some stupid design/coding

That's also the reason I decided to try the "DNS as hidden service over TLS"
