The "badpacket" generator is a program that generates (potentially) bad DNS packets for sending to a nameserver and testing its response. It is meant to be used as a testing tool for the BIND 10. Currently, the generator can:

  • Set any combination of flags in the DNS message header.
  • Vary the size of the DNS message (by truncating or extending with random data)
  • Set the DNS message section counts (independently of what is in the section).

This ticket is for enhancements to the program to:

  • Actually insert data into the various message sections.
  • Modify the data in the message sections (e.g. by corrupting the label length fields).
  • Add a set of options for testing (bad) EDNS0 data.
