: For a while I've had my eye on a system that abuses the open nature of DNS requests to tunnel data out of a firewalled / censored environment. It would be interesting to see this implemented into tor bridges as an additional method of circumventing blocking. 

iodine doesn't abuse the open nature of DNS requests per se, it takes
advantage of the fact that roughly 95% of free networks with a captive
portal allow dns without question. or that people rarely look into dns
packets to see what they are doing.

As far as tor over iodine or nstx, it works fine.
