resolv: Domain Name Service (DNS) lookup via the libresolv standard library routines

[ gpl, library, network ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package implements an API for accessing the Domain Name Service (DNS) resolver service via the standard libresolv system library (whose API is often available directly via the standard libc C library) on Unix systems.

This package also includes support for decoding message record types as defined in the following RFCs:

  • RFC 1035: Domain Names - Implementation And Specification

  • RFC 1183: New DNS RR Definitions

  • RFC 2782: A DNS RR for specifying the location of services (DNS SRV)

  • RFC 2915: The Naming Authority Pointer (NAPTR) DNS Resource Record

  • RFC 3596: DNS Extensions to Support IP Version 6

  • RFC 4034: Resource Records for the DNS Security Extensions

  • RFC 4255: Using DNS to Securely Publish Secure Shell (SSH) Key Fingerprints

  • RFC 4408: Sender Policy Framework (SPF) for Authorizing Use of Domains in E-Mail, Version 1

  • RFC 5155: DNS Security (DNSSEC) Hashed Authenticated Denial of Existence

  • RFC 6844: DNS Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) Resource Record

  • RFC 6891: Extension Mechanisms for DNS (EDNS(0))

  • RFC 7553: The Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) DNS Resource Record

For Windows, the package windns provides a compatible subset of this package's API.
