Rebinding protectionΒΆ

This module provides protection from DNS Rebinding attack by blocking answers which contain IPv4 or IPv6 addresses for private use (or some other special-use addresses).

To enable this module insert following line into your configuration file:

modules.load('rebinding < iterate')

Please note that this module does not offer stable configuration interface yet. For this reason it is suitable mainly for public resolver operators who do not need to whitelist certain subnets.


DNS Blacklists (RFC 5782) often use to blacklist a domain. Using the rebinding module prevents DNSBL from functioning properly.
