This is the Internet Software Consortium's DHCP client.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol like BOOTP
(actually dhcpd includes much of the functionality of bootpd). It
gives client machines "leases" for IP addresses and can
automatically set their network configuration. If your machine
depends on DHCP (especially likely if it's a workstation on a large
network, or a laptop, or attached to a cable modem), keep this or
another DHCP client installed.
Extra documentation can be found in the package isc-dhcp-common.

isc-dhcp (4.3.3-5ubuntu9) xenial; urgency=medium
* debian/isc-dhcp-server.isc-dhcp-server{,6}.service: adjust permissions
for most recent PARANOIA commits to avoid granting 'capability
dac_override' in the AppArmor profile on second and subsequent starts
(LP: #1543794):
- /var/lib/dhcp is root:dhcpd and 775
- /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd{,6}.leases is root:dhcpd and 664
- don't chown /run/dhcp-server to dhcpd:dhcpd since the pid file is now
created as root:root and the pid file was not being created before. If
this needs to be reintroduced in the future, use root:dhcpd and 775,
like with the leases file.

* Allow chown - PARANOIA means that dhcpd tries to chown the leases file
for later use. LP: #1537789

isc-dhcp (4.3.3-5ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* Correct my previous upload: Create the initial leases file if it doesn't
exist when isc-dhcp-server or isc-dhcp-server6 are started, because it
won't do it by itself. (LP: #1535952)
