BIND 9

	BIND version 9 is a major rewrite of nearly all aspects of the
	underlying BIND architecture.  Some of the important features of
	BIND 9 are:

		- DNS Security
			DNSSEC (signed zones)
			TSIG (signed DNS requests)

		- IP version 6
			Answers DNS queries on IPv6 sockets
			IPv6 resource records (AAAA)
			Experimental IPv6 Resolver Library

		- DNS Protocol Enhancements
			IXFR, DDNS, Notify, EDNS0
			Improved standards conformance

		- Views
			One server process can provide multiple "views" of
			the DNS namespace, e.g. an "inside" view to certain
			clients, and an "outside" view to others.

		- Multiprocessor Support

		- Improved Portability Architecture


	BIND version 9 development has been underwritten by the following
	organizations:

		Sun Microsystems, Inc.
		Hewlett Packard
		Compaq Computer Corporation
		IBM
		Process Software Corporation
		Silicon Graphics, Inc.
		Network Associates, Inc.
		U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency
		USENIX Association
		Stichting NLnet - NLnet Foundation
		Nominum, Inc.

	For a summary of functional enhancements in previous
	releases, see the HISTORY file.

	For a detailed list of user-visible changes from
	previous releases, see the CHANGES file.

BIND 9.10.4-P7

	This version contains fixes for CVE-2017-3136 and CVE-2017-3137,
	and updates the built in trusted keys for the root zone.

BIND 9.10.4-P6

	This version contains a fix for CVE-2017-3135, and a bug fix
	for a regression in CNAME/DNAME caching that was introduced
	in an earlier security release.

BIND 9.10.4-P5

	This version contains fixes for CVE-2016-9131, CVE-2016-9147,
	CVE-2016-9444 and CVE-2016-9778.

BIND 9.10.4-P4

	This version contains a fix for CVE-2016-8864.

BIND 9.10.4-P3

	This version contains a fix for CVE-2016-2776 and addresses
	an interoperability issue with ECS clients.

BIND 9.10.4-P2

	This version contains a fix for CVE-2016-2775 and addresses
	two regressions introduced with BIND 9.10.4.

BIND 9.10.4-P1

	This version contains three urgent fixes to BIND 9.10.4:
	1) Windows installation was failing without manual updating
	   of BINDinstall's attributes.
	2) Windows doesn't support the %z printf modifier.
	3) A race condition was causing instability in the RBT
	   tree state.

BIND 9.10.4

	BIND 9.10.4 is a maintenance release and addresses bugs
	found in BIND 9.10.3 and earlier, as well as the security
	flaws described in CVE-2015-8000, CVE-2015-8461, CVE-2015-8704,
	CVE-2015-8705, CVE-2016-1285, CVE-2016-1286, and CVE-2016-2088.

BIND 9.10.3

	BIND 9.10.3 is a maintenance release and addresses bugs
	found in BIND 9.10.2 and earlier, as well as the security
	flaws described in CVE-2015-4620, CVE-2015-5477,
	CVE-2015-5722, and CVE-2015-5986.

	It also makes the following new features available:

	- New "fetchlimit" quotas are now available for the use of
	  recursive resolvers that are are under high query load for
	  domains whose authoritative servers are nonresponsive or are
	  experiencing a denial of service attack.

	  + "fetches-per-server" limits the number of simultaneous queries
	    that can be sent to any single authoritative server.  The
	    configured value is a starting point; it is automatically
	    adjusted downward if the server is partially or completely
	    non-responsive. The algorithm used to adjust the quota can be
	    configured via the "fetch-quota-params" option.
	  + "fetches-per-zone" limits the number of simultaneous queries
	    that can be sent for names within a single domain.  (Note:
	    Unlike "fetches-per-server", this value is not self-tuning.)
	  + New stats counters have been added to count
	    queries spilled due to these quotas.

	  NOTE: These features are NOT built in by default; use
	  "configure --enable-fetchlimit" to enable them.

	- Dig now supports sending of arbitrary EDNS options by specifying
	  them on the command line.

BIND 9.10.2

	BIND 9.10.2 is a maintenance release and addresses bugs
	found in BIND 9.10.1 and earlier, as well as the security
	flaws described in CVE-2014-8500, CVE-2014-8680 and
	CVE-2015-1349.

BIND 9.10.1

	BIND 9.10.1 is a maintenance release and addresses bugs
	found in BIND 9.10.0 and earlier.

	This release addresses the security flaws described in
	CVE-2014-3214 and CVE-2014-3859.

BIND 9.10.0

	BIND 9.10.0 includes a number of changes from BIND 9.9 and earlier
	releases.  New features include:

	 - DNS Response-rate limiting (DNS RRL), which blunts the
	   impact of reflection and amplification attacks, is always
	   compiled in and no longer requires a compile-time option
	   to enable it.
	 - An experimental "Source Identity Token" (SIT) EDNS option
	   is now available.  Similar to DNS Cookies as invented by
	   Donald Eastlake 3rd, these are designed to enable clients
	   to detect off-path spoofed responses, and to enable servers
	   to detect spoofed-source queries.  Servers can be configured
	   to send smaller responses to clients that have not identified
	   themselves using a SIT option, reducing the effectiveness of
	   amplification attacks.  RRL processing has also been updated;
	   clients proven to be legitimate via SIT are not subject to
	   rate limiting.  Use "configure --enable-sit" to enable this
	   feature in BIND.
	 - A new zone file format, "map", stores zone data in a
	   format that can be mapped directly into memory, allowing
	   significantly faster zone loading.
	 - "delv" (domain entity lookup and validation) is a new tool
	   with dig-like semantics for looking up DNS data and performing
	   internal DNSSEC validation.  This allows easy validation in
	   environments where the resolver may not be trustworthy, and
	   assists with troubleshooting of DNSSEC problems. (NOTE:
	   In previous development releases of BIND 9.10, this utility
	   was called "delve". The spelling has been changed to avoid
	   confusion with the "delve" utility included with the Xapian
	   search engine.)
	 - Improved EDNS(0) processing for better resolver performance
	   and reliability over slow or lossy connections.
	 - A new "configure --with-tuning=large" option tunes certain
	   compiled-in constants and default settings to values better
	   suited to large servers with abundant memory.  This can
	   improve performance on such servers, but will consume more
	   memory and may degrade performance on smaller systems.
	 - Substantial improvement in response-policy zone (RPZ)
	   performance.  Up to 32 response-policy zones can be
	   configured with minimal performance loss.
	 - To improve recursive resolver performance, cache records
	   which are still being requested by clients can now be
	   automatically refreshed from the authoritative server
	   before they expire, reducing or eliminating the time
	   window in which no answer is available in the cache.
	 - New "rpz-client-ip" triggers and drop policies allowing
	   response policies based on the IP address of the client.
	 - ACLs can now be specified based on geographic location
	   using the MaxMind GeoIP databases.  Use "configure
	   --with-geoip" to enable.
	 - Zone data can now be shared between views, allowing
	   multiple views to serve the same zones authoritatively
	   without storing multiple copies in memory.
	 - New XML schema (version 3) for the statistics channel
	   includes many new statistics and uses a flattened XML tree
	   for faster parsing. The older schema is now deprecated.
	 - A new stylesheet, based on the Google Charts API, displays
	   XML statistics in charts and graphs on javascript-enabled
	   browsers.
	 - The statistics channel can now provide data in JSON
	   format as well as XML.
	 - New stats counters track TCP and UDP queries received
	   per zone, and EDNS options received in total.
	 - The internal and export versions of the BIND libraries
	   (libisc, libdns, etc) have been unified so that external
	   library clients can use the same libraries as BIND itself.
	 - A new compile-time option, "configure --enable-native-pkcs11",
	   allows BIND 9 cryptography functions to use the PKCS#11 API
	   natively, so that BIND can drive a cryptographic hardware
	   service module (HSM) directly instead of using a modified
	   OpenSSL as an intermediary. (Note: This feature requires an
	   HSM to have a full implementation of the PKCS#11 API; many
	   current HSMs only have partial implementations. The new
	   "pkcs11-tokens" command can be used to check API completeness.
	   Native PKCS#11 is known to work with the Thales nShield HSM
	   and with SoftHSM version 2 from the Open DNSSEC project.)
	 - The new "max-zone-ttl" option enforces maximum TTLs for
	   zones. This can simplify the process of rolling DNSSEC keys
	   by guaranteeing that cached signatures will have expired
	   within the specified amount of time.
	 - "dig +subnet" sends an EDNS CLIENT-SUBNET option when
	   querying.
	 - "dig +expire" sends an EDNS EXPIRE option when querying.
	   When this option is sent with an SOA query to a server
	   that supports it, it will report the expiry time of
	   a slave zone.
	 - New "dnssec-coverage" tool to check DNSSEC key coverage
	   for a zone and report if a lapse in signing coverage has
	   been inadvertently scheduled.
	 - Signing algorithm flexibility and other improvements
	   for the "rndc" control channel.
	 - "named-checkzone" and "named-compilezone" can now read
	   journal files, allowing them to process dynamic zones.
	 - Multiple DLZ databases can now be configured.  Individual
	   zones can be configured to be served from a specific DLZ
	   database.  DLZ databases now serve zones of type "master"
	   and "redirect".
	 - "rndc zonestatus" reports information about a specified zone.
	 - "named" now listens on IPv6 as well as IPv4 interfaces
	   by default.
	 - "named" now preserves the capitalization of names
	   when responding to queries: for instance, a query for
	   "example.com" may be answered with "example.COM" if the
	   name was configured that way in the zone file.  Some
	   clients have a bug causing them to depend on the older
	   behavior, in which the case of the answer always matched
	   the case of the query, rather than the case of the name
	   configured in the DNS.  Such clients can now be specified
	   in the new "no-case-compress" ACL; this will restore the
	   older behavior of "named" for those clients only.
	 - new "dnssec-importkey" command allows the use of offline
	   DNSSEC keys with automatic DNSKEY management.
	 - New "named-rrchecker" tool to verify the syntactic
	   correctness of individual resource records.
	 - When re-signing a zone, the new "dnssec-signzone -Q" option
	   drops signatures from keys that are still published but are
	   no longer active.
	 - "named-checkconf -px" will print the contents of configuration
	   files with the shared secrets obscured, making it easier to
	   share configuration (e.g. when submitting a bug report)
	   without revealing private information.
	 - "rndc scan" causes named to re-scan network interfaces for
	   changes in local addresses.
	 - On operating systems with support for routing sockets,
	   network interfaces are re-scanned automatically whenever
	   they change.
	 - "tsig-keygen" is now available as an alternate command
	   name to use for "ddns-confgen".

BIND 9.9.0

	BIND 9.9.0 includes a number of changes from BIND 9.8 and earlier
	releases.  New features include:

	- Inline signing, allowing automatic DNSSEC signing of
	  master zones without modification of the zonefile, or
	  "bump in the wire" signing in slaves.
	- NXDOMAIN redirection.
	- New 'rndc flushtree' command clears all data under a given
	  name from the DNS cache.
	- New 'rndc sync' command dumps pending changes in a dynamic
	  zone to disk without a freeze/thaw cycle.
	- New 'rndc signing' command displays or clears signing status
	  records in 'auto-dnssec' zones.
	- NSEC3 parameters for 'auto-dnssec' zones can now be set prior
	  to signing, eliminating the need to initially sign with NSEC.
	- Startup time improvements on large authoritative servers.
	- Slave zones are now saved in raw format by default.
	- Several improvements to response policy zones (RPZ).
	- Improved hardware scalability by using multiple threads
	  to listen for queries and using finer-grained client locking
	- The 'also-notify' option now takes the same syntax as
	  'masters', so it can used named masterlists and TSIG keys.
	- 'dnssec-signzone -D' writes an output file containing only DNSSEC
	  data, which can be included by the primary zone file.
	- 'dnssec-signzone -R' forces removal of signatures that are
	  not expired but were created by a key which no longer exists.
	- 'dnssec-signzone -X' allows a separate expiration date to
	  be specified for DNSKEY signatures from other signatures.
	- New '-L' option to dnssec-keygen, dnssec-settime, and
	  dnssec-keyfromlabel sets the default TTL for the key.
	- dnssec-dsfromkey now supports reading from standard input,
	  to make it easier to convert DNSKEY to DS.
	- RFC 1918 reverse zones have been added to the empty-zones
	  table per RFC 6303.
	- Dynamic updates can now optionally set the zone's SOA serial
	  number to the current UNIX time.
	- DLZ modules can now retrieve the source IP address of
	  the querying client.
	- 'request-ixfr' option can now be set at the per-zone level.
	- 'dig +rrcomments' turns on comments about DNSKEY records,
	  indicating their key ID, algorithm and function
	- Simplified nsupdate syntax and added readline support

Building

	BIND 9 currently requires a UNIX system with an ANSI C compiler,
	basic POSIX support, and a 64 bit integer type.

	We've had successful builds and tests on the following systems:

		COMPAQ Tru64 UNIX 5.1B
		Fedora Core 6
		FreeBSD 4.10, 5.2.1, 6.2
		HP-UX 11.11
		Mac OS X 10.5
		NetBSD 3.x, 4.0-beta, 5.0-beta
		OpenBSD 3.3 and up
		Solaris 8, 9, 9 (x86), 10
		Ubuntu 7.04, 7.10
		Windows XP/2003/2008

	NOTE:  As of BIND 9.5.1, 9.4.3, and 9.3.6, older versions of
	Windows, including Windows NT and Windows 2000, are no longer
	supported.

	We have recent reports from the user community that a supported
	version of BIND will build and run on the following systems:

		AIX 4.3, 5L
		CentOS 4, 4.5, 5
		Darwin 9.0.0d1/ARM
		Debian 4, 5, 6
		Fedora Core 5, 7, 8
		FreeBSD 6, 7, 8
		HP-UX 11.23 PA
		MacOS X 10.5, 10.6, 10.7
		Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, 6
		SCO OpenServer 5.0.6
		Slackware 9, 10
		SuSE 9, 10

	To build, just

		./configure
		make

	Do not use a parallel "make".

	Several environment variables that can be set before running
	configure will affect compilation:

	    CC
		The C compiler to use.  configure tries to figure
		out the right one for supported systems.

	    CFLAGS
		C compiler flags.  Defaults to include -g and/or -O2
		as supported by the compiler.  Please include '-g'
		if you need to set CFLAGS.

	    STD_CINCLUDES
		System header file directories.  Can be used to specify
		where add-on thread or IPv6 support is, for example.
		Defaults to empty string.

	    STD_CDEFINES
		Any additional preprocessor symbols you want defined.
		Defaults to empty string.

		Possible settings:
		Change the default syslog facility of named/lwresd.
		  -DISC_FACILITY=LOG_LOCAL0
		Enable DNSSEC signature chasing support in dig.
		  -DDIG_SIGCHASE=1 (sets -DDIG_SIGCHASE_TD=1 and
				    -DDIG_SIGCHASE_BU=1)
		Disable dropping queries from particular well known ports.
		  -DNS_CLIENT_DROPPORT=0
		Sibling glue checking in named-checkzone is enabled by default.
		To disable the default check set.  -DCHECK_SIBLING=0
		named-checkzone checks out-of-zone addresses by default.
		To disable this default set.  -DCHECK_LOCAL=0
		To create the default pid files in ${localstatedir}/run rather
		than ${localstatedir}/run/{named,lwresd}/ set.
		  -DNS_RUN_PID_DIR=0
		Enable workaround for Solaris kernel bug about /dev/poll
		  -DISC_SOCKET_USE_POLLWATCH=1
		  The watch timeout is also configurable, e.g.,
		  -DISC_SOCKET_POLLWATCH_TIMEOUT=20

	    LDFLAGS
		Linker flags. Defaults to empty string.

	The following need to be set when cross compiling.

	    BUILD_CC
		The native C compiler.
	    BUILD_CFLAGS (optional)
	    BUILD_CPPFLAGS (optional)
		Possible Settings:
		-DNEED_OPTARG=1         (optarg is not declared in <unistd.h>)
	    BUILD_LDFLAGS (optional)
	    BUILD_LIBS (optional)

	On most platforms, BIND 9 is built with multithreading
	support, allowing it to take advantage of multiple CPUs.
	You can configure this by specifying "--enable-threads" or
	"--disable-threads" on the configure command line.  The default
	is to enable threads, except on some older operating systems
	on which threads are known to have had problems in the past.
	(Note: Prior to BIND 9.10, the default was to disable threads on
	Linux systems; this has been reversed.  On Linux systems, the
	threaded build is known to change BIND's behavior with respect
	to file permissions; it may be necessary to specify a user with
	the -u option when running named.)

	To build shared libraries, specify "--with-libtool" on the
	configure command line.

	Certain compiled-in constants and default settings can be
	increased to values better suited to large servers with abundant
	memory resources (e.g, 64-bit servers with 12G or more of memory)
	by specifying "--with-tuning=large" on the configure command
	line. This can improve performance on big servers, but will
	consume more memory and may degrade performance on smaller
	systems.

	For the server to support DNSSEC, you need to build it
	with crypto support.  You must have OpenSSL 0.9.5a
	or newer installed and specify "--with-openssl" on the
	configure command line.  If OpenSSL is installed under
	a nonstandard prefix, you can tell configure where to
	look for it using "--with-openssl=/prefix".

	To support the HTTP statistics channel, the server must
	be linked with at least one of the following: libxml2
	(http://xmlsoft.org) or json-c (https://github.com/json-c).
	If these are installed at a nonstandard prefix, use
	"--with-libxml2=/prefix" or "--with-libjson=/prefix".

	On some platforms it is necessary to explicitly request large
	file support to handle files bigger than 2GB.  This can be
	done by "--enable-largefile" on the configure command line.

	Support for the "fixed" rrset-order option can be enabled
	or disabled by specifying "--enable-fixed-rrset" or
	"--disable-fixed-rrset" on the configure command line.
	The default is "disabled", to reduce memory footprint.

	If your operating system has integrated support for IPv6, it
	will be used automatically.  If you have installed KAME IPv6
	separately, use "--with-kame[=PATH]" to specify its location.

	"make install" will install "named" and the various BIND 9 libraries.
	By default, installation is into /usr/local, but this can be changed
	with the "--prefix" option when running "configure".

	You may specify the option "--sysconfdir" to set the directory
	where configuration files like "named.conf" go by default,
	and "--localstatedir" to set the default parent directory
	of "run/named.pid".   For backwards compatibility with BIND 8,
	--sysconfdir defaults to "/etc" and --localstatedir defaults to
	"/var" if no --prefix option is given.  If there is a --prefix
	option, sysconfdir defaults to "$prefix/etc" and localstatedir
	defaults to "$prefix/var".

	To see additional configure options, run "configure --help".
	Note that the help message does not reflect the BIND 8
	compatibility defaults for sysconfdir and localstatedir.

	If you're planning on making changes to the BIND 9 source, you
	should also "make depend".  If you're using Emacs, you might find
	"make tags" helpful.

	If you need to re-run configure please run "make distclean" first.
	This will ensure that all the option changes take.

	Building with gcc is not supported, unless gcc is the vendor's usual
	compiler (e.g. the various BSD systems, Linux).

	Known compiler issues:
	* gcc-3.2.1 and gcc-3.1.1 is known to cause problems with solaris-x86.
	* gcc prior to gcc-3.2.3 ultrasparc generates incorrect code at -02.
	* gcc-3.3.5 powerpc generates incorrect code at -02.
	* Irix, MipsPRO 7.4.1m is known to cause problems.

	A limited test suite can be run with "make test".  Many of
	the tests require you to configure a set of virtual IP addresses
	on your system, and some require Perl; see bin/tests/system/README
	for details.

	SunOS 4 requires "printf" to be installed to make the shared
	libraries.  sh-utils-1.16 provides a "printf" which compiles
	on SunOS 4.

Known limitations

	Linux requires kernel build 2.6.39 or later to get the
	performance benefits from using multiple sockets.

Documentation

	The BIND 9 Administrator Reference Manual is included with the
	source distribution in DocBook XML and HTML format, in the
	doc/arm directory.

	Some of the programs in the BIND 9 distribution have man pages
	in their directories.  In particular, the command line
	options of "named" are documented in /bin/named/named.8.
	There is now also a set of man pages for the lwres library.

	If you are upgrading from BIND 8, please read the migration
	notes in doc/misc/migration.  If you are upgrading from
	BIND 4, read doc/misc/migration-4to9.

	Frequently asked questions and their answers can be found in
	FAQ.

	Additional information on various subjects can be found
	in the other README files.


Change Log

	A detailed list of all changes to BIND 9 is included in the
	file CHANGES, with the most recent changes listed first.
	Change notes include tags indicating the category of the
	change that was made; these categories are:

	   [func]         New feature

	   [bug]          General bug fix

	   [security]     Fix for a significant security flaw

	   [experimental] Used for new features when the syntax
			  or other aspects of the design are still
			  in flux and may change

	   [port]         Portability enhancement

	   [maint]        Updates to built-in data such as root
			  server addresses and keys

	   [tuning]       Changes to built-in configuration defaults
			  and constants to improve performance

	   [performance]  Other changes to improve server performance

	   [protocol]     Updates to the DNS protocol such as new
			  RR types

	   [test]         Changes to the automatic tests, not
			  affecting server functionality

	   [cleanup]      Minor corrections and refactoring

	   [doc]          Documentation

	   [contrib]	  Changes to the contributed tools and
			  libraries in the 'contrib' subdirectory

	   [placeholder]  Used in the master development branch to
			  reserve change numbers for use in other
			  branches, e.g. when fixing a bug that only
			  exists in older releases

	In general, [func] and [experimental] tags will only appear
	in new-feature releases (i.e., those with version numbers
	ending in zero).  Some new functionality may be backported to
	older releases on a case-by-case basis.  All other change
	types may be applied to all currently-supported releases.
