Some of our satisfied support customers

Many of our support customers have been with ISC for years. They subscribe not because they are incapable of manipulating open source - quite the reverse. Many of them are leaders in the industry and very sophisticated technically. We value their input and always prioritize requests from our support customers.

SIDN

SIDN operates the .nl country registry for the Netherlands, the first active country top-level domain in the DNS, outside of the US. SIDN Labs authors tools and conducts research projects to help support the Internet and DNS in particular. As an ISC support customer, SIDN is also helping to support the open source you use!

CIRA

CIRA is the Canadian Internet Registry Authority. CIRA also provides a DNS Anycast service and a DNS security service for enterprises. CIRA has supported ISC for many years; they were one of the Patron supporters of ISC’s BIND 10 project, which lives on in the Kea DHCP server, and they have made many advances in the DNS community, particularly in operationalizing DNS security (DNSSEC). CIRA contributes actively to the DNS technical community through DNS-OARC. Through their support relationship with ISC, CIRA is helping to underwrite the maintenance of ISC’s open source for everyone.

InternetNZ

InternetNZ operates the registry for .nz in New Zealand. They offer internationalized domain names in the Māori language, both under a separate third-level domain and in .nz. InternetNZ engineers are frequent participants in DNS-OARC conferences. Sebastian Castro of InternetNZ personally contributed to the development of BIND’s DNSSEC key-manager utility. InternetNZ subscribes to ISC’s Advance Security Notifications for BIND.

SWITCH

SWITCH operates the Swiss country-code top-level domains .ch and .li. SWITCH subscribes to ISC’s Advance Security Notification service so they can receive BIND patches for critical security issues before they are announced publicly. SWITCH uses BIND resolvers and dnsdist to provide recursive DNS services to users of the Swiss higher education and research network NREN. SWITCH also offers a DNS firewall service which supports BIND with RPZ. Oli Schacher of SWITCH discovered and reported a serious bug in RPZ, which ISC fixed. SWITCH not only supports ISC with a regular ASN contract, they also made an unrestricted donation of CHF 10,000 to ISC in 2017.

NIC.BR

The Brazilian Network Information Center is a non-profit civil entity that implements the decisions and projects of the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee. In addition to contributing to ISC’s long-term success through a BIND support subscription, NIC.BR also supports F-Root through both financial contributions and node operations.

The Internet Foundation in Sweden

The Internet Foundation is an independent, business-driven and non-profit organization that works for an Internet that contributes positively to man and society. They are responsible for the Internet’s Swedish top-level domain .se and also handle the operation and administration of the top-level domain .nu. IIS.se backs ISC through its purchase of professional BIND support.
