ldns-verify-zone - read a DNSSEC signed zone and verify it.
ldns-verify-zone reads a DNS zone file and verifies it. RRSIG resource records are checked against the DNSKEY set at the zone apex. Each name is checked for an NSEC(3), if appropriate.
-h Show usage and exit -a Apex only, check only the zone apex -e period Signatures may not expire within this period. Default no period is used. -i period Signatures must have been valid at least this long. Default signatures should just be valid now. -k file A file that contains a trusted DNSKEY or DS rr. This option may be given more than once. Alternatively, if -k is not specified, and a default trust anchor (/etc/unbound/root.key) exists and contains a valid DNSKEY or DS record, it will be used as the trust anchor. -p [0-100] Only check this percentage of the zone. Which names to check is determined randomly. Defaults to 100. -S Chase signature(s) to a known key. The network may be accessed to validate the zone's DNSKEYs. (implies -k) -t YYYYMMDDhhmmss | [+|-]offset Set the validation time either by an absolute time value or as an offset in seconds from the current time. -v Show the version and exit -V number Set the verbosity level (default 3): 0: Be silent 1: Print result, and any errors 2: Same as 1 for now 3: Print result, any errors, and the names that are being checked 4: Same as 3 for now 5: Print the zone after it has been read, the result, any errors, and the names that are being checked periods are given in ISO 8601 duration format: P[n]Y[n]M[n]DT[n]H[n]M[n]S If no file is given standard input is read.
/etc/unbound/root.key The file from which trusted keys are loaded for signature chasing, when no -k option is given.
