Paul Vixie

Dr. Paul Vixie designed, implemented and deployed several Domain Name System (DNS) protocol extensions and applications that are used throughout the Internet today, including dynamic update, network reputation and BIND open-source software. He is the primary author and technical architect of BIND 8. He started maintaining BIND 4 in 1988 while working for the Digital Equipment Corporation. He hired many of the people who wrote BIND 9 and BIND 10. BIND, which stands for Berkeley Internet Name Domain, is the most widely used DNS software on the Internet, and on Unix-like systems it is the de facto standard. Read his full bio here.
