BIND 10 is an applications framework for Internet infrastructure, such as DNS. The BIND10 framework consists of a control framework, an application interface, a statistics server, a logging framework, a remote control daemon, a configuration client tool, and numerous other tools for its development and operation.

Multiple infrastructure applications modules can be run under this framework. The BIND10 authoritative DNS application is one such application. BIND10 DNS is designed to be dynamically-updated, easily extensible, and to leverage a database back-end.

BIND 10 was a five year development project, sponsored by a world-wide consortium of DNS industry leaders.
