"It's a closely watched and long-anticipated overhaul. BIND is
in wide use among used by enterprises, ISPs and service providers
to route domain name traffic to the correct IP address.
"The upcoming BIND 10 release will focus on usability,
extensibility and security improvements. The focus on security is a
key one for BIND, especially in light of the Kaminsky DNS
vulnerability that affected BIND in 2008, which potentially could
have disrupted Internet traffic.
""One of the goals for BIND 10 is to allow people to customize
and extend without too much trouble," Shane Kerr, BIND 10's program
manager at the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), told
InternetNews.com. "Every design decision will be documented in a
way that makes sense without having to know the details of the
entire system. The same applies to APIs and the code itself."
