DNS BIND security, how safe is my server?
Hello, I recently finished installing/configuring BIND on a Scientific Linux 6.0 bpx. I registered a domain name through godaddy.com and set my SL 6.0 box to be the primary master for DNS. Now, I only have access to one public/WAN IP, and it looks like I am unable to subnet the IP to make more IP addresses. (It's a virtual server on another Linux box). My question is, how secure is my DNS. I read several books/guides on the internet to setup DNS/BIND. I did manage to get the chroot jail going, but wasn't sure if there are any security risks that I need to be aware of. Are there commands similar to nslookup/dig that could help troubleshoot the security of my DNS server?
