ldns-keygen - generate a DNSSEC key pair
ldns-keygen [ OPTION ] DOMAIN
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
It prints out the basename for these files: K<name>+<alg>+<id>
Create a key with this algorithm. Specifying ’list’ here gives a
list of supported algorithms.
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.
Make ldns-keygen use this file to seed the random generator
with. This will default to /dev/random.
-v Show the version and exit
