Can HiveOS be extended so that it supports the BIND Response Policy Zone functionality. The RPZ is a DNS Zone which contains a list of DNS zones. The RPZ DNS Zone is then used to provide a filter on DNS requests. It is possible for multiple RPZ DNS Zone to be configured.

For example SPAMHAUS have been providing a RPZ DNS Zone which contains an updated list of Malware, Botnet C & C and other problem site. The DNS server can then choose to pass the DNS request to resolve the IP Address, Block with a invalid Domain or a redirect to a friendly IP (company website).

Aerohive could provide there own RPZ DNS Zones to cover different content, based on Shopping, Adult Material, Gaming Sites, etc
