79
80 <p><span class="command"><strong>dnssec-signzone</strong></span>
81 signs a zone. It generates
82 NSEC and RRSIG records and produces a signed version of the
83 zone. The security status of delegations from the signed zone
84 (that is, whether the child zones are secure or not) is
85 determined by the presence or absence of a
86 <code class="filename">keyset</code> file for each child zone.

186 Sets the maximum TTL for the signed zone.
187 Any TTL higher than <em class="replaceable"><code>maxttl</code></em> in the
188 input zone will be reduced to <em class="replaceable"><code>maxttl</code></em>
189 in the output. This provides certainty as to the largest
190 possible TTL in the signed zone, which is useful to know when
191 rolling keys because it is the longest possible time before
192 signatures that have been retrieved by resolvers will expire
193 from resolver caches. Zones that are signed with this
194 option should be configured to use a matching
195 <code class="option">max-zone-ttl</code> in <code class="filename">named.conf</code>.
196 (Note: This option is incompatible with <code class="option">-D</code>,
197 because it modifies non-DNSSEC data in the output zone.)

203 Specify the date and time when the generated RRSIG records
204 become valid. This can be either an absolute or relative

206 in YYYYMMDDHHMMSS notation; 20000530144500 denotes
207 14:45:00 UTC on May 30th, 2000. A relative start time is
208 indicated by +N, which is N seconds from the current time.
209 If no <code class="option">start-time</code> is specified, the current

217 expire. As with <code class="option">start-time</code>, an absolute
218 time is indicated in YYYYMMDDHHMMSS notation. A time relative
219 to the start time is indicated with +N, which is N seconds from
220 the start time. A time relative to the current time is
221 indicated with now+N. If no <code class="option">end-time</code> is
222 specified, 30 days from the start time is used as a default.
223 <code class="option">end-time</code> must be later than
224 <code class="option">start-time</code>.

228 <dd>
229 <p>
230 Specify the date and time when the generated RRSIG records
231 for the DNSKEY RRset will expire. This is to be used in cases
232 when the DNSKEY signatures need to persist longer than
233 signatures on other records; e.g., when the private component
234 of the KSK is kept offline and the KSK signature is to be
235 refreshed manually.
236 </p>
237 <p>
238 As with <code class="option">start-time</code>, an absolute
239 time is indicated in YYYYMMDDHHMMSS notation. A time relative
240 to the start time is indicated with +N, which is N seconds from
241 the start time. A time relative to the current time is
242 indicated with now+N. If no <code class="option">extended end-time</code> is
243 specified, the value of <code class="option">end-time</code> is used as
244 the default. (<code class="option">end-time</code>, in turn, defaults to
245 30 days from the start time.) <code class="option">extended end-time</code>
246 must be later than <code class="option">start-time</code>.

252 The name of the output file containing the signed zone. The
253 default is to append <code class="filename">.signed</code> to
254 the input filename. If <code class="option">output-file</code> is
255 set to <code class="literal">"-"</code>, then the signed zone is
256 written to the standard output, with a default output
257 format of "full".

274 <dd>
275 <p>
276 When a previously-signed zone is passed as input, records
277 may be resigned. The <code class="option">interval</code> option
278 specifies the cycle interval as an offset from the current
279 time (in seconds). If a RRSIG record expires after the
280 cycle interval, it is retained. Otherwise, it is considered
281 to be expiring soon, and it will be replaced.
282 </p>
283 <p>
284 The default cycle interval is one quarter of the difference
285 between the signature end and start times. So if neither
286 <code class="option">end-time</code> or <code class="option">start-time</code>
287 are specified, <span class="command"><strong>dnssec-signzone</strong></span>
288 generates
289 signatures that are valid for 30 days, with a cycle
290 interval of 7.5 days. Therefore, if any existing RRSIG records
291 are due to expire in less than 7.5 days, they would be
292 replaced.

298 The format of the input zone file.
299 Possible formats are <span class="command"><strong>"text"</strong></span> (default),
300 <span class="command"><strong>"raw"</strong></span>, and <span class="command"><strong>"map"</strong></span>.
301 This option is primarily intended to be used for dynamic
302 signed zones so that the dumped zone file in a non-text
303 format containing updates can be signed directly.
304 The use of this option does not make much sense for
305 non-dynamic zones.

307 </dd>
308 <dt><span class="term">-j <em class="replaceable"><code>jitter</code></em></span></dt>
309 <dd>
310 <p>
311 When signing a zone with a fixed signature lifetime, all
312 RRSIG records issued at the time of signing expires
313 simultaneously. If the zone is incrementally signed, i.e.
314 a previously-signed zone is passed as input to the signer,
315 all expired signatures have to be regenerated at about the
316 same time. The <code class="option">jitter</code> option specifies a
317 jitter window that will be used to randomize the signature
318 expire time, thus spreading incremental signature
319 regeneration over time.
320 </p>
321 <p>
322 Signature lifetime jitter also to some extent benefits
323 validators and servers by spreading out cache expiration,
324 i.e. if large numbers of RRSIGs don't expire at the same time
325 from all caches there will be less congestion than if all
326 validators need to refetch at mostly the same time.

407 The post sign verification test ensures that for each algorithm
408 in use there is at least one non revoked self signed KSK key,
409 that all revoked KSK keys are self signed, and that all records
410 in the zone are signed by the algorithm.

420 Normally, when a previously-signed zone is passed as input
421 to the signer, and a DNSKEY record has been removed and
422 replaced with a new one, signatures from the old key
423 that are still within their validity period are retained.
424 This allows the zone to continue to validate with cached
425 copies of the old DNSKEY RRset. The <code class="option">-Q</code>
426 forces <span class="command"><strong>dnssec-signzone</strong></span> to remove
427 signatures from keys that are no longer active. This
428 enables ZSK rollover using the procedure described in
429 RFC 4641, section 4.2.1.1 ("Pre-Publish Key Rollover").

438 This option is similar to <code class="option">-Q</code>, except it
439 forces <span class="command"><strong>dnssec-signzone</strong></span> to signatures from
440 keys that are no longer published. This enables ZSK rollover
441 using the procedure described in RFC 4641, section 4.2.1.2

518 Specifies a TTL to be used for new DNSKEY records imported
519 into the zone from the key repository. If not
520 specified, the default is the TTL value from the zone's SOA
521 record. This option is ignored when signing without
522 <code class="option">-S</code>, since DNSKEY records are not imported
523 from the key repository in that case. It is also ignored if
524 there are any pre-existing DNSKEY records at the zone apex,
525 in which case new records' TTL values will be set to match
526 them, or if any of the imported DNSKEY records had a default
527 TTL value. In the event of a a conflict between TTL values in
528 imported keys, the shortest one is used.

540 Update NSEC/NSEC3 chain when re-signing a previously signed

543 be switch to NSEC or to NSEC3 with different parameters.

624
625 <p>
626 The following command signs the <strong class="userinput"><code>example.com</code></strong>
627 zone with the ECDSAP256SHA256 key generated by key generated by
628 <span class="command"><strong>dnssec-keygen</strong></span> (Kexample.com.+013+17247).
629 Because the <span class="command"><strong>-S</strong></span> option is not being used,
630 the zone's keys must be in the master file
631 (<code class="filename">db.example.com</code>). This invocation looks
632 for <code class="filename">dsset</code> files, in the current directory,
633 so that DS records can be imported from them (<span class="command"><strong>-g</strong></span>).
634 </p>
635 <pre class="programlisting">% dnssec-signzone -g -o example.com db.example.com \
636 Kexample.com.+013+17247
637 db.example.com.signed
638 %</pre>
639 <p>
640 In the above example, <span class="command"><strong>dnssec-signzone</strong></span> creates
641 the file <code class="filename">db.example.com.signed</code>. This
642 file should be referenced in a zone statement in a
643 <code class="filename">named.conf</code> file.
644 </p>
645 <p>
646 This example re-signs a previously signed zone with default parameters.
647 The private keys are assumed to be in the current directory.
648 </p>
649 <pre class="programlisting">% cp db.example.com.signed db.example.com
