system with a C99-compliant C compiler, BSD-style sockets with
RFC-compliant IPv6 support, POSIX-compliant threads, and the OpenSSL
cryptography library. Atomic operations support from the compiler is
needed, either in the form of builtin operations, C11 atomics or the
Interlocked family of functions on Windows.

ISC regularly tests BIND on many operating systems and architectures, but
lacks the resources to test all of them. Consequently, ISC is only able to
offer support on a "best effort" basis for some.

Regularly tested platforms

As of May 2018, BIND 9.13 is tested on the following systems:

  * Debian 8, 9
  * Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04
  * Fedora 27, 28
  * Red Hat/CentOS 6, 7
  * FreeBSD 10.x, 11.x
  * OpenBSD 6.3

The amd64, i386, armhf and arm64 CPU architectures are all fully
supported.

Best effort

The following are platforms on which BIND is known to build and run, but
on which it is not routinely tested. ISC makes every effort to fix bugs on
these platforms, but may be unable to do so quickly due to lack of
hardware, less familiarity on the part of engineering staff, and other
constraints.

  * Windows 10 / x64
  * Windows Server 2012 R2, 2016 / x64
  * macOS 10.12+
  * Solaris 10
  * FreeBSD 12+
  * OpenBSD 6.2
  * NetBSD
  * Older or less popular Linux distributions still supported by their
    vendors, such as:
      + Ubuntu 14.04, 18.10+
      + Gentoo
      + ArchLinux
      + Alpine Linux
  * OpenWRT/LEDE 17.0
  * Other CPU architectures (mips, mipsel, sparc, ...)

Unsupported platforms

These are platforms on which BIND is known not to build or run:

  * Platforms without at least OpenSSL 1.0.2
  * Windows 10 / x86
58 59
  * Windows Server 2012 and older
  * Platforms that don't support IPv6 Advanced Socket API (RFC 3542)
