'MaraDNS' is a fully functional DNS server supporting authoritative DNS, recursive DNS, and caching DNS. It is intended for environments where a DNS server must be secure and where the server must use the absolute minimum number of resources possible. Its security features include the use of a special string library which is resistant to buffer overflows and that the code, if started as root, mandates running as an unpriviledged user in a chroot() jail.
