Now offering Advance Security Notification for NSD and Unbound, in addition to BIND
- Read more
ISC has signed a memo of understanding with NLnet Labs, makers of Unbound and NSD, to collaborate in providing support to users of our DNS software. NSD is a popular alternative to BIND for authoritative DNS services, and Unbound is a high-performance recursive resolver. As a first step in this collaboration, ISC is now selling advance security notification of vulnerabilities
F-Root is distributed using “anycast” technology all around the world, with 54 operational locations, carrying 25% of the root name server traffic, and operating an average 16,000 queries per second. ISC is pleased to announce that a new F-Root DNS Root node has returned to MyIX, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, sponsored by Persatuan Pendendali Internet Malaysia. Previously, ISC had a node in MyIX from 2008 to mid-2013, but with this new sponsorship and new equipment, F-Root has returned to MyIX in May 2014 to serve the Malaysian and regional Internet community. ISC eagerly accepts peering requests at the new MyIX node as well as exchange points all over the globe. Please see http://www.isc.org/f-root/ for more information.

BIND and DHCP are open source software. Community support is available on our two public mailing lists: bind-user and dhcp-user. We also provide expert professional support for our enterprise users via http://www.dns-co.com/. You can reach our support team by filling out the form at http://www.dns-co.com/contact/ BIND security is critical to the Internet Infrastructure. If you think you may be seeing a potential security vulnerability in BIND (for example, a crash with REQUIRE, INSIST, or ASSERT failure), please report it immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org and do not post it on the public mailing list. To report a bug, please submit a Bug Report Form, or submit via email to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org If you wish to submit a feature request, email us at:
Facebook, Inc., has made a contribution for 2014 to help support continued development of the Kea DHCP server. Kea is not nearly as feature-rich as the more mature ISC DHCP server, but it is useful today for datacenter networking.
JANET, the UK’s Research and Education Network, made a much-appreciated 2014 charitable donation to ISC. This contribution, and others like it, go directly to supporting the maintenance of our free open-source software, improving the quality for all.
