dnssec-revoke — set the REVOKED bit on a DNSSEC key

Synopsis

dnssec-revoke [-hr] [-v level] [-V] [-K directory] [-E engine] [-f] [-R] {keyfile}

Description

dnssec-revoke reads a DNSSEC key file, sets the REVOKED bit on the key as defined in RFC 5011, and creates a new pair of key files containing the now-revoked key.

Options

-h
Emit usage message and exit.
-K directory
Sets the directory in which the key files are to reside.
-r
After writing the new keyset files remove the original keyset files.
-v level
Sets the debugging level.
-V
Prints version information.
-E engine
Specifies the cryptographic hardware to use, when applicable.

When BIND is built with OpenSSL PKCS#11 support, this defaults to the string "pkcs11", which identifies an OpenSSL engine that can drive a cryptographic accelerator or hardware service module. When BIND is built with native PKCS#11 cryptography (--enable-native-pkcs11), it defaults to the path of the PKCS#11 provider library specified via "--with-pkcs11".
-f
Force overwrite: Causes dnssec-revoke to write the new key pair even if a file already exists matching the algorithm and key ID of the revoked key.
-R
Print the key tag of the key with the REVOKE bit set but do not revoke the key.
