DNSSEC Key Management Tools
This is a beta release of a DNSSEC key management tool that we have been developing as part of the DISI project.
The this program suite is designed to ease DNSSEC key management. The suite provides a front-end to the BIND dnssec-signzone and dnssec-keygen tools.
The suite contains, besides a number of libraries, the following programs:
A shell in which you maintain your keys
A signer that uses the key database to sign zones.
A tool to create an initial config.
Copies key pairs out of the key database to a different location (Useful in combination with a dynamic zone.)
Appendix A of the documentation contains an small cookbook that may give you an idea of how these tools are used.
