ISC develops and distributes three open source Internet networking
software packages: BIND 9, ISC DHCP, and Kea DHCP.
BIND 9, ISC’s Domain Name System (DNS) software program, is widely used on the Internet by
enterprises and service providers, offering a robust and stable platform
on top of which organizations can build distributed computing systems.
ISC DHCP implements the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for connection
to an IP network, offering a complete solution for implementing DHCP
servers, relay agents, and clients. ISC DHCP is a mature program with
many features, but it can be cumbersome for operators to maintain.
Kea DHCP is ISC’s intended replacement for ISC DHCP, and is designed
for dynamic reconfiguration.
