Description

The TSIG routines are used to implement transaction/request security of DNS messages.

ns_sign() and ns_verify() are the basic routines. ns_sign_tcp() and ns_verify_tcp() are used to sign/verify TCP messages that may be split into multiple packets, such as zone transfers, and ns_sign_tcp_init(), ns_verify_tcp_init() initialize the state structure necessary for TCP operations. ns_find_tsig() locates the TSIG record in a message, if one is present.

ns_sign()

msg

the incoming DNS message, which will be modified

msglen

the length of the DNS message, on input and output

msgsize

the size of the buffer containing the DNS message on input

error

the value to be placed in the TSIG error field

key

the (DST_KEY *) to sign the data

querysig

for a response, the signature contained in the query

querysiglen

the length of the query signature

sig

a buffer to be filled with the generated signature

siglen

the length of the signature buffer on input, the signature length on output

ns_sign_tcp()

msg

the incoming DNS message, which will be modified

msglen

the length of the DNS message, on input and output

msgsize

the size of the buffer containing the DNS message on input

error

the value to be placed in the TSIG error field

state

the state of the operation

done

non-zero value signifies that this is the last packet

ns_sign_tcp_init()

k

the (DST_KEY *) to sign the data

querysig

for a response, the signature contained in the query

querysiglen

the length of the query signature

state

the state of the operation, which this initializes

ns_verify()

msg

the incoming DNS message, which will be modified

msglen

the length of the DNS message, on input and output

key

the (DST_KEY *) to sign the data

querysig

for a response, the signature contained in the query

querysiglen

the length of the query signature

sig

a buffer to be filled with the signature contained

siglen

the length of the signature buffer on input, the signature length on output

nostrip

non-zero value means that the TSIG is left intact

ns_verify_tcp()

msg

the incoming DNS message, which will be modified

msglen

the length of the DNS message, on input and output

state

the state of the operation

required

non-zero value signifies that a TSIG record must be present at this step

ns_verify_tcp_init()

k

the (DST_KEY *) to verify the data

querysig

for a response, the signature contained in the query

querysiglen

the length of the query signature

state

the state of the operation, which this initializes

ns_find_tsig()

msg

the incoming DNS message

msglen

the length of the DNS message

Return Values

ns_find_tsig() returns a pointer to the TSIG record if one is found, and NULL otherwise.

All other routines return 0 on success, modifying arguments when necessary.

ns_sign() and ns_sign_tcp() return the following errors:

(-1)

bad input data

(-ns_r_badkey)

The key was invalid, or the signing failed

NS_TSIG_ERROR_NO_SPACE

the message buffer is too small.

ns_verify() and ns_verify_tcp() return the following errors:

(-1)

bad input data

NS_TSIG_ERROR_FORMERR

The message is malformed

NS_TSIG_ERROR_NO_TSIG

The message does not contain a TSIG record

NS_TSIG_ERROR_ID_MISMATCH

The TSIG original ID field does not match the message ID

(-ns_r_badkey)

Verification failed due to an invalid key

(-ns_r_badsig)

Verification failed due to an invalid signature

(-ns_r_badtime)

Verification failed due to an invalid timestamp

ns_r_badkey

Verification succeeded but the message had an error of BADKEY

ns_r_badsig

Verification succeeded but the message had an error of BADSIG

ns_r_badtime

Verification succeeded but the message had an error of BADTIME
