MaraDNS 2.0.06

A fully functional DNS server
MaraDNS is a package that implements the Domain Name Service (DNS), an essential internet service.

MaraDNS is intended for environments where a DNS server must be secure and where the server must use the absolute minimum number of resources possible.

MaraDNS was created in response to issues people had with the DNS servers available in early 2001; and has the following design goals:

- Security-aware programming. A DNS server needs to be secure. I have a number of security features in the code, including:

1. The code uses a special string library which is resistant to buffer overflows.
2. The code, if started as root, mandates running as an unprivledged user in a chroot() jail.

- Open-Source. The 1.0 release of the DNS server is public-domain code; the next release will be released under a very liberal BSD-style license.

- Simplicity. This DNS server has the minimum number of features needed to correctly act as an authoritative and/or recursive name server.
