[1371] updated the bind10 guide about xfrout (IXFR support, ACL configuration)

The <command>b10-xfrout</command> process is started by
When the <command>b10-auth</command> authoritative DNS server
receives an AXFR request, <command>b10-xfrout</command>
sends the zone.
This is used to provide master DNS service to share zones
receives an AXFR or IXFR request, <command>b10-auth</command>
internally forwards the request to <command>b10-xfrout</command>,
which handles the rest of request processing.
This is used to provide primary DNS service to share zones
to secondary name servers.
The <command>b10-xfrout</command> is also used to send
NOTIFY messages to slaves.
NOTIFY messages to secondary servers.
A global or per zone <option>transfer_acl</option> configuration
can be used to control accessibility of the outbound zone
transfer service.
By default, <command>b10-xfrout</command> allows any clients to
perform zone transfers for any zones:
<screen>&gt; <userinput>config show Xfrout/transfer_acl</userinput>
Xfrout/transfer_acl[0] {"action": "ACCEPT"} any (default)</screen>
You can change this to, for example, rejecting all transfer
requests by default while allowing requests for the transfer
of zone "" from and 2001:db8::1 as follows:
<screen>&gt; <userinput>config set Xfrout/transfer_acl[0] {"action": "REJECT"}</userinput>
&gt; <userinput>config add Xfrout/zone_config</userinput>
&gt; <userinput>config set Xfrout/zone_config[0]/origin ""</userinput>
&gt; <userinput>config set Xfrout/zone_config[0]/transfer_acl [{"action": "ACCEPT", "from": ""},</userinput>
<userinput> {"action": "ACCEPT", "from": "2001:db8::1"}]</userinput>
&gt; <userinput>config commit</userinput></screen>
The current development release of BIND 10 only supports
AXFR. (IXFR is not supported.)
Access control is not yet provided.
In the above example the lines
for <option>transfer_acl</option> were divided for
readability. In the actual input it must be in a single line.
If you want to require TSIG in access control, a separate TSIG
"key ring" must be configured specifically
for <command>b10-xfrout</command> as well as a system wide
key ring, both containing a consistent set of keys.
For example, to change the previous example to allowing requests
from signed by a TSIG with a key name of
"key.example", you'll need to do this:
<screen>&gt; <userinput>config set tsig_keys/keys ["key.example:&lt;base64-key&gt;"]</userinput>
&gt; <userinput>config set Xfrout/tsig_keys/keys ["key.example:&lt;base64-key&gt;"]</userinput>
&gt; <userinput>config set Xfrout/zone_config[0]/transfer_acl [{"action": "ACCEPT", "from": "", "key": "key.example"}]</userinput>
&gt; <userinput>config commit</userinput></screen>
The first line of configuration defines a system wide key ring.
This is necessary because the <command>b10-auth</command> server
also checks TSIGs and it uses the system wide configuration.
In a future version, <command>b10-xfrout</command> will also
use the system wide TSIG configuration.
The way to specify zone specific configuration (ACLs, etc) is
likely to be changed, too.
