DNS Authority for x86 provides fine-grained DDoS detection and mitigation rules, allowing the server to continue to respond to legitimate queries while dropping queries from attackers—unlike conventional DNS solutions that crash or become unavailable at much lower levels of attack traffic.

BIND is the most widely deployed DNS software in the world, which makes it a primary target for attackers seeking to cause maximum worldwide damage. DNS Authority for x86 is a completely different implementation that shares no code with BIND, making it immune to all BIND-specific vulnerabilities.
Authority for x86 provides a rich RESTful API that enables external orchestration and management systems to configure, monitor and manage it throughout its lifecycle. This promotes network automation and elastic scaling – two key goals in the shift towards virtual network functions.
