Pro DNS and BIND

Posted: 08 Jun 2009 09:44 AM PDT


Pro DNS and BIND guides you through the challenging array of features surrounding DNS, with a special focus on BIND, the world's most popular DNS implementation. This book unravels the mysteries of DNS, offering insight into origins, evolution, and key concepts like domain names and zone files. This book focuses on running DNS systems based on BIND 9.3.0—the first stable release that includes support for the latest DNSSEC (DNSSEC.bis) standards and a major functional upgrade from previous BIND 9 releases.

If you administer a DNS system or are thinking about running one, or if you need to upgrade to support IPv6 DNS, need to secure a DNS for zone transfer, dynamic update, or other reasons, or if you need to implement DNSSEC, or simply want to understand the DNS system, then this book provides you with a single point of reference. Pro DNS and BIND starts with simple concepts, then moves on to full security-aware DNSSEC configurations. Various features, parameters, and resource records are described and, in the majority of cases, illustrated with one or more examples.

The book contains a complete reference to zone files, Resource Records, and BIND's configuration file parameters. You can treat the book as as a simple paint-by-numbers guide to everything from a simple caching DNS, to the most complex secure DNS (DNSSEC) implementation. Background information is still included for when you need to know what to do and why you have to do it, and so that you can modify processes to meet your unique needs.

Topics Include:
Introduction to the DNS Basic DNS types with complete configuarion examples DNS and IPv6 Installing BIND on Linux, FreeBSD and Windows Subdomain delegation DNS and load balancing Reverse map delegation DNSSEC (DNSSEC.bis) and the DLV experimental service Key rollover and DNSSEC maintenance DNS tools and diagnostics.

Building a server with FreeBSD 7

Building a server with FreeBSD 7

Hong’s straightforward style makes it easy for the do-it-yourself crowd to build a server quickly using the ports collection (a software package management system). But rather than wade through the thousands of ports available, Hong focuses on the most popular and useful ones. Each package is treated as an independent project (and given a difficulty rating), so readers can dip into the book at any point to install just the packages they need, when they need them.

The book’s modules cover topics like:

* Running common FreeBSD admin commands and tasks.
* Managing the FreeBSD ports collection.
* Installing third-party apps like Apache, Courier-IMAP, SpamAssassin, CUPS, Cyrus SASL, MediaWiki, and WordPress.
* Setting up MySQL, NTP, ISC DHCP, ISC BIND DNS, PHP, OpenLDAP, OpenSSH, OpenSSL, and OpenVPN.

Appendixes explain user management, backup/restore, and network protocols.

Building a Server with FreeBSD 7 will have readers running their own server loaded with useful modules in no time, with a minimum of hassle.
