Name

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

Synopsis

dnssec-revoke [-hr] [-v level] [-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.

-E engine

Use the given OpenSSL engine. When compiled with PKCS#11 support it defaults to pkcs11; the empty name resets it to no engine.

-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.
