DNSSEC-KEYFROMLABEL(8)		     BIND9		DNSSEC-KEYFROMLABEL(8)

NAME
       dnssec-keyfromlabel - DNSSEC key generation tool

SYNOPSIS
       dnssec-keyfromlabel {-a algorithm} {-l label} [-c class] [-f flag] [-k]
			   [-n nametype] [-p protocol] [-t type] [-v level]
			   {name}

DESCRIPTION
       dnssec-keyfromlabel gets keys with the given label from a crypto
       hardware and builds key files for DNSSEC (Secure DNS), as defined in
       RFC 2535 and RFC 4034.

OPTIONS
       -a algorithm
	   Selects the cryptographic algorithm. The value of algorithm must be
	   one of RSAMD5, RSASHA1, DSA, NSEC3RSASHA1, NSEC3DSA, RSASHA256,
	   RSASHA512 or DH (Diffie Hellman). These values are case
	   insensitive.

	   If no algorithm is specified, then RSASHA1 will be used by default,
	   unless the -3 option is specified, in which case NSEC3RSASHA1 will
	   be used instead. (If -3 is used and an algorithm is specified, that
	   algorithm will be checked for compatibility with NSEC3.)

	   Note 1: that for DNSSEC, RSASHA1 is a mandatory to implement
	   algorithm, and DSA is recommended.

	   Note 2: DH automatically sets the -k flag.

       -l label
	   Specifies the label of keys in the crypto hardware (PKCS#11
	   device).

       -n nametype
	   Specifies the owner type of the key. The value of nametype must
	   either be ZONE (for a DNSSEC zone key (KEY/DNSKEY)), HOST or ENTITY
	   (for a key associated with a host (KEY)), USER (for a key
	   associated with a user(KEY)) or OTHER (DNSKEY). These values are
	   case insensitive.

       -c class
	   Indicates that the DNS record containing the key should have the
	   specified class. If not specified, class IN is used.

       -f flag
	   Set the specified flag in the flag field of the KEY/DNSKEY record.
	   The only recognized flag is KSK (Key Signing Key) DNSKEY.

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

       -k
	   Generate KEY records rather than DNSKEY records.

       -p protocol
	   Sets the protocol value for the generated key. The protocol is a
	   number between 0 and 255. The default is 3 (DNSSEC). Other possible
	   values for this argument are listed in RFC 2535 and its successors.

       -t type
	   Indicates the use of the key.  type must be one of AUTHCONF,
	   NOAUTHCONF, NOAUTH, or NOCONF. The default is AUTHCONF. AUTH refers
	   to the ability to authenticate data, and CONF the ability to
	   encrypt data.

       -v level
	   Sets the debugging level.

GENERATED KEY FILES
       When dnssec-keyfromlabel completes successfully, it prints a string of
       the form Knnnn.+aaa+iiiii to the standard output. This is an
       identification string for the key files it has generated.

       ·   nnnn is the key name.

       ·   aaa is the numeric representation of the algorithm.

       ·   iiiii is the key identifier (or footprint).

       dnssec-keyfromlabel creates two files, with names based on the printed
       string.	Knnnn.+aaa+iiiii.key contains the public key, and
       Knnnn.+aaa+iiiii.private contains the private key.

       The .key file contains a DNS KEY record that can be inserted into a
       zone file (directly or with a $INCLUDE statement).

       The .private file contains algorithm specific fields. For obvious
       security reasons, this file does not have general read permission.
