Registrar touts diversity and improved security
vnunet.com, 12 Jun 2009
UK domain registrar Nominet has announced the launch of Unbound, an open-source domain name server (DNS) designed to work on all Windows operating systems.
The platform was developed in conjunction with NLnet Labs, a non-profit research foundation aimed at providing open-source and open-standards tools for internet communication.
The launch will help to push the development of DNS Security Extensions (DNSSec), and provides an alternative to the hugely popular Unix-based Berkeley Internet Name Domain (Bind) server.
"DNS is an incredibly important but completely hidden part of the internet," said Lesley Cowley, chief executive at Nominet. "Continued development of Unbound is an important part of ensuring that the DNS infrastructure is kept up to date and protected against security threats."
