September 8, 1998
Third Edition of the "de facto bible" of DNS and BIND released
SEBASTOPOL, CA-If you're using the Internet, you're already using DNS-even if you don't know it. The just-released third edition of O'Reilly's DNS and BIND discusses one of the Internet's fundamental building blocks: the distributed host information database that's responsible for translating names into addresses, routing mail to its proper destination, and many other services.

This new, third edition covers BIND 4.9, on which most commercial products are currently based, and BIND 8, which implements many important new features and will be the basis for the next generation of commercial name servers. It also covers topics like DNS security (greatly improved with BIND 8.1), asynchronous notification of changes to a zone, dynamic updates, and programming with Perl's Net:DNS module.

About the Authors
Paul Albitz is a software engineer at Hewlett-Packard. Paul worked on BIND for the HP-UX 7.0 and 8.0 releases. During this time Paul developed the tools used to run the p.com domain. As system administrator in the CS Department of Purdue University, Paul ran versions of BIND before BIND's initial release with 4.3 BSD. Paul and his wife Katherine live in San Diego, CA.

Cricket Liu matriculated at the University of California's Berkeley campus, that great bastion of free speech, unencumbered UNIX and cheap pizza. He went to work for Hewlett-Packard after graduation and stayed at HP for nine years. Cricket currently runs his own DNS consulting and training company, Acme Byte & Wire, with his friend Matt Larson. Cricket, his wife, Paige, and their son, Walt, live in Colorado.
