Net::DNS is a DNS resolver implemented in Perl. It allows the programmer to perform nearly any type of DNS query from a Perl script. Net::DNS::SEC is an extension to the library that implements the DNSSEC resource records.
Net::DNS was created by Michael Fuhr and has been maintained by Chris Reinhardt between 2002 and 2004. Net::DNS::SEC, Net::DNS::TestNS and Net::DNS::Zone::Parser were developed by Olaf Kolkman while at the RIPE NCC. NLnet Labs maintains and develops these modules.
