Want to learn about getdns? Bring your questions to Glen, Neel, Willem, and Allison. Discover more about getdns, including:

  • getdns makes it easy to leverage DNS to create authenticated services with getdns modes
  • getdns was designed to optimize language bindings; presently it has Python and node.js bindings (with other bindings on the way
  • getdns is targeted to developers of many types of application, and a feature of it is to require little DNS expertise, while quickly providing both basic and advanced DNS capabilities.

Willem Toorop

NLNet Labs

Willem is a developer at NLnet Labs, a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to the development of open-source implementations of open standards. At NLnet Labs Willem is the lead developer of the C DNS utility library: ldns. Willem has implemented leading edge DNS functionality for ldns based on new open standards such as DNSSEC and DANE. Our getdns-api implementation utilizes ldns for processing DNS data. Another of NLnet Labs C-libraries, libunbound, is used for DNS resolving. Besides working on ldns Willem also maintains and develops the perl Net::DNS and Net::DNS::SEC modules and actively researches Path MTU black holes that hamper DNSSEC deployment.
