       ldns-walk - Retrieve the contents of a DNSSEC signed zone


       ldns-walk [ OPTION ] ZONE


       ldns-walk is used to retrieve the contents of a DNSSEC signed zone.  It
       does this through NSEC-walking (following the chain  of  NSEC  records)
       and ’guessing’ the next non-existent owner name for each NSEC.

       Note that it might get stuck on some wildcard records when used through
       a caching forwarder. This problem can be circumvented by  querying  the
       authoritative nameserver directly (with the @ argument).

       Of course the nameserver that is used must be DNSSEC-aware.


       -f     Do  a ’full’ zone walk; by default, ldns-walk will only show the
              names, and types present at  those  names.  If  this  option  is
              given, all resource records will be printed.

       -s name
              Start  the walk with this owner name. Useful when continuing the
              walk for a large zone.

       @ nameserver
              Send the queries to this nameserver.


       The full zone walk function is not complete yet, it does not  correctly
       print delegation records
