DNS and DHCP usage policy
July 6, 2021
Domain Name System (DNS) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) are the foundation of essential network configuration and communication, especially DNS. Internal and external network access could not work as we know it without DNS, and DHCP is invaluable in provisioning temporary IP addresses for workstations and devices to utilize to facility connectivity.
The criticality of these services goes hand in hand with the need to properly configure, maintain and secure them, since disruption of either DNS or DHCP can wreak havoc and negatively impact business operations.
The purpose of this DNS and DHCP usage policy is to provide guidelines for the appropriate implementation and administration of DNS and DHCP.
This policy can be customized as needed to fit the needs of your organization.
