The hooks framework is a Kea system that simplifies the way that
users can write code to modify the behavior of Kea. Instead of
altering the Kea source code, they write functions that are compiled
and linked into a shared library. The library is specified in the Kea
and linked into a dynamic shared object called here a shared library
(even the concepts are different they are implemented in the same
way with a common naming). The library is specified in the Kea
configuration and at run time Kea dynamically loads the library
into its address space. At various points in the processing, the component
"calls out" to functions in the library, passing to them the data is it

In order to minimize the interaction between Kea and the user
code, the latter is built independently of Kea in the form of
a shared library (or libraries). These are made known to Kea
through its configuration mechanism, and Kea loads the library at
run time. Libraries can be unloaded and reloaded as needed while Kea
