Archive for November 2010 secured with DNSSEC

Last week I wrote that I asked the .nl TLD maintainers to add the DS records for to the .nl zone.

And yesterday the big moment was there.

Have a look.

Secure DNS for

I just verified this with SIDN and I am number 7 on the list of DNSSEC secured domains in the Netherlands.

Wow, that's really quick! smiley

Some time ago I blogged that my zones are signed and now it's possible to add the DS key to the .nl zone.

This still is a manual process, but I opted in with my domain. The .com TLD isn't signed yet, so the is still to be done.

I also updated some scripts and things to make it work better smiley

First I need the ZSK and KSK and I generate them like this:

dnssec-keygen -e -a NSEC3RSASHA1 -3 -b 2048 -n ZONE
dnssec-keygen    -a NSEC3RSASHA1 -3 -b 2048 -n ZONE -f KSK

This enables the NSEC3 options for the zone.

And signing the zones is done like:

dnssec-signzone           \
    -v 3                  \
    -3 34A3               \
    -A                    \
    -d keys               \
    -K keys               \
    -N unixtime           \
    -f   \
    -o          \

It will take a couple of days for the DS keys to appear in the .nl TLD.

I will keep you posted.

It took some time, but I did manage to make a new version of It has some errors corrected and some extra features.

And now it comes with its own, shiny, new man page. (

Come and g[ei]t it. It's in the files section or on github.

Or clone it with:
