       dnssec-makekeyset - DNSSEC zone signing tool

       dnssec-makekeyset  [  -a ]  [ -s start-time ]  [ -e end-time ]  [ -h ]
       [ -p ]  [ -r randomdev ]  [ -tttl ]  [ -v level ]  key...

       dnssec-makekeyset generates a key set from one or more keys created by
       dnssec-keygen. It creates a file containing a KEY record for each key,
       and self-signs the key set with each zone key. The output file  is  of
       the form keyset-nnnn., where nnnn is the zone name.

       -a     Verify all generated signatures.

       -s start-time
              Specify the date and time when the generated SIG records become
              valid. This can be either an  absolute  or  relative  time.  An
              absolute  start time is indicated by a number in YYYYMMDDHHMMSS
              notation; 20000530144500 denotes  14:45:00  UTC  on  May  30th,
              2000. A relative start time is indicated by +N, which is N sec-
              onds from the current time.  If no start-time is specified, the
              current time is used.

       -e end-time
              Specify  the  date  and  time  when  the  generated SIG records
              expire. As with start-time, an absolute time  is  indicated  in
              YYYYMMDDHHMMSS  notation.  A time relative to the start time is
              indicated with +N, which is N seconds from the  start  time.  A
              time  relative  to the current time is indicated with now+N. If
              no end-time is specified, 30 days from the start time  is  used
              as a default.

       -h     Prints  a short summary of the options and arguments to dnssec-

       -p     Use pseudo-random data when signing the zone. This  is  faster,
              but  less  secure, than using real random data. This option may
              be useful when signing large zones or when the  entropy  source
              is limited.

       -r randomdev
              Specifies  the  source  of  randomness. If the operating system
              does not  provide  a  /dev/random  or  equivalent  device,  the
              default source of randomness is keyboard input. randomdev spec-
              ifies the name of a character device or file containing  random
              data  to be used instead of the default. The special value key-
              board indicates that keyboard input should be used.

       -t ttl Specify the TTL (time to live) of the KEY and SIG records.  The
              default is 3600 seconds.

       -v level
              Sets the debugging level.

              are expressed in the  form  Knnnn.+aaa+iiiii  as  generated  by

       The  DNS  administrator for example.com could send keyset-example.com.
       to the DNS administrator for .com for signing, if  the  .com  zone  is
       DNSSEC-aware  and the administrators of the two zones have some mecha-
       nism for authenticating each other and exchanging the keys and  signa-
       tures securely.
