Hesiod, the Athena name server, provides naming for services and data objects in a distributed network environment. More specifically, it replaces databases that heretofore have had to be duplicated on each workstation and timesharing machine (e.g., remote file system information, /etc/printcap, /etc/services, /etc/passwd, /etc/group) and provides a flexible mechanism to supply new information as the need arises.
