NAME


ldns-keygen - generate a DNSSEC key pair

SYNOPSIS


ldns-keygen [ OPTION ] DOMAIN

DESCRIPTION


ldns-keygen is used to generate a private/public keypair. When run, it will create 3
files; a .key file with the public DNSKEY, a .private file with the private keydata and a
.ds with the DS record of the DNSKEY record.

ldns-keygen can also be used to create symmetric keys (for TSIG) by selecting the
appropriate algorithm: hmac-md5.sig-alg.reg.int, hmac-sha1 or hmac-sha256. In that case
no DS record will be created and no .ds file.

ldns-keygen prints the basename for the key files: K<name>+<alg>+<id>

OPTIONS


-a <algorithm>
Create a key with this algorithm. Specifying 'list' here gives a list of supported
algorithms. Several alias names are also accepted (from older versions and other
software), the list gives names from the RFC. Also the plain algo number is
accepted.

-b <bits>
Use this many bits for the key length.

-k When given, generate a key signing key. This just sets the flag field to 257
instead of 256 in the DNSKEY RR in the .key file.

-r device
Make ldns-keygen use this file to seed the random generator with. This will default
to /dev/random.

-v Show the version and exit
