US Government users

Many US Government agencies and organizations use ISC open source software. We offer technical support services, including DNS audits. As the author, maintainer and publisher of BIND, ISC DHCP and Kea, we are the sole source that is capable of performing some of these services.

Below please see ISC’s Capability Statement.

“Open source software that has at least one non-governmental use, and has been or is available to the public, is commercial software. If it is already available to the public and is used unchanged, it is usually COTS.”
