** FreeRADIUS: a high performance and flexible DHCP server
We are happy to announce that FreeRADIUS 3 is now fully compliant with the base DHCP standards. Previous versions supported the base DORA exchange, but lacked some features such as Decline packets.

With greater flexibility and performance that is as fast or faster than the ISC DHCP server, FreeRADIUS is now a compelling option if you find yourself limited by your current implementation.

For the last twenty years, FreeRADIUS has been known as the world’s leading open source RADIUS server. At Network RADIUS, we have a long history of leading the maintenance and development of FreeRADIUS. During that time, FreeRADIUS has been focused on the RADIUS standards, with other protocols being a secondary consideration. One of the other protocols it has supported for over a decade is DHCP.

We decided that it was time to take a closer look at the DHCP implementation. Our goal was to evaluate its stability and performance, to meet or exceed industry standards, to make adjustments where necessary, and to beef up support for edge cases in the protocol. The results of our work are included in FreeRADIUS 3.0.22 which is available now.
