This is the source for the BIND 10 suite.
This is the source for Kea, developed by Internet Systems Consortium.
BIND is the popular implementation of a DNS server, developer
interfaces, and DNS tools. BIND 10 is a rewrite of BIND 9 and ISC
DHCP. BIND 10 is written in C++ and Python and provides a modular
environment for serving, maintaining, and developing DNS and DHCP.
This release includes the bind10 master process, b10-msgq message
bus, b10-cmdctl remote control daemon, b10-cfgmgr configuration
manager, b10-stats statistics collection and reporting daemon, and
b10-stats-httpd for HTTP access to XML-formatted stats.
For DNS services, it provides the b10-auth authoritative DNS server
(with SQLite3 and in-memory backends), b10-xfrin IXFR/AXFR inbound
service, b10-xfrout outgoing IXFR/AXFR service, b10-zonemgr secondary
manager, libdns++ library for C++ with a python wrapper, and many
tests and example programs. (It also includes an experimental proof
of concept recursive or forwarding DNS server, b10-resolver.)
BIND 10 also provides experimental DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 servers,
b10-dhcp4 and b10-dhcp6, a dynamic DNS update module, b10-dhcp-ddns,
Kea provides DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 servers, a dynamic DNS update module,
a portable DHCP library, libdhcp++, and a DHCP benchmarking tool,
perfdhcp. In this release of BIND 10, the DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 servers
must be considered experimental. Limitations and known issues with
this DHCP release can be found at
NOTE: The API/ABI provided by libraries in BIND 10 may change in future
point releases. So please do not assume currently that any code that you
compile for a particular version of a BIND 10 library will work in
future versions of the library. We aim to stabilize the public API/ABI
interface of BIND 10 libraries in future releases.
Documentation is included with the source. See doc/guide/bind10-guide.txt
