This presentation provides an update about Kea, a modern, open source DHCP server from ISC. It starts with some background history about ISC DHCP, its problems and the reasons why migration to Kea is desired. The major advantages of Kea (REST API, optional database backends, extensibility with hooks, performance) are discussed. The latest features and additions implemented in Kea 2.0 and beyond are discussed: scalable multi-threading for HA, TLS support, cache threshold). A sneak peak of Stork, a dashboard for Kea with Prometheus and Grafana capabilities conclude the talk.
