A signer using a Net::DNS::SEC::Maint keydatabase. Users can a separate tool to configure DNSSEC keys in the keydatabase. The dnssigner will use this database to include a KEYSET in the apex and sign the zone using an appropriate zone and keysinging keys.
The signer needs access to the dnssecmaint configuration file. If the DNSSECMAINT_CONFFILE does not contain a full path to the configuration file the system will use the default location. (/usr/local/etc/dnssecmaint.conf)
The Net::DNS::SEC::Maint package commes with a utility called dnssecmaint-config that will assist you in generating a configuration file.
The code is dependend on Net::DNS::SEC::Maint::Zone. See the TODO file in the distribution for more info.
This is code in development stage not ment for further distribution. Use at your own risk
