       trustman - Manage keys used as trust anchors


       trustman [options]


       trustman manages keys used by DNSSEC as trust anchors in compliance with RFC5011.  It may
       be used as a daemon for ongoing key verification or manually for initialization and one-
       time key verification.

       By default, trustman runs as a daemon to ensure that keys stored locally in configuration
       files still match the same keys fetched from the zone where they are defined.  In
       addition, these checks can be run once manually (-S) and in the foreground (-f).

       For each key mismatch check, if key mismatches are detected then trustman performs the
       following operations:

           - sets an add hold-down timer for new keys;
           - sets a remove hold-down timer for missing keys;
           - removes revoked keys from the configuration file.

       On subsequent runs, the timers are checked.  If the timers have expired, keys are added to
       or removed from the configuration file, as appropriate.

       named.conf and dnsval.conf are the usual configuration files.  These files must be
       specified in the DNSSEC-Tools configuration file or in command line options.


       trustman takes a number of options, each of which is described in this section.  Each
       option name may be shortened to the minimum number of unique characters, but some options
       also have an alias (as noted.)  The single-letter form of each option is denoted in
       parentheses, e.g.: -anchor_data_file (-a).

       -anchor_data_file file (-a)
           A persistent data file for storing new keys waiting to be added.

       -config file (-c)
           Create a configuration file for trustman from the command line options given.  The
           existing DNSSEC-Tools configuration file is copied to the specified configuration
           file, and new configuration entries are appended corresponding to the command line
           options.  trustman-specific entries already in the existing configuration file will be
           replaced with new entries from the command line.  This will allow fewer command line
           options to be specified in the future.

       -dnsval_conf_file /path/to/dnsval.conf (-k)
           A dnsval.conf file to read, and possibly be updated.

       -dtconfig config_file (-d)
           Name of an alternate DNSSEC-Tools configuration file to be processed.  If specified,
           this configuration file is used in place of the normal DNSSEC-Tools configuration
           file, not in addition to it.  Also, it will be handled prior to keyrec files, rollrec
           files, and command-line options.

       -foreground (-f)
           Run in the foreground.  trustman will still run in a loop.  To run once, use the
           -single_run option instead.

       -hold_time seconds (-w)
           The value of the hold-down timer.  This is the number of seconds from the time that a
           new key is found.  Generally, the default and recommended value of 30 days should be

       -mail_contact_addr email_address (-m)
           Mail address for the contact person to whom reports should be sent.

       -monitor (-M)
           Indicates that trustman was run from a monitoring system, and a summary of events will
           be printed.  Specifying this option automatically turns on the -single_run option and
           turns off the -verbose option.

           This was developed for use with the Nagios monitoring system, but it can be adapted
           for other monitors.

       -named_conf_file /path/to/named.conf (-n)
           A named.conf file to read, and possibly update.

           Prevents mail from being sent, even if an SMTP server was specified in the
           configuration file.  This is useful for only sending notifications via stdout (-p) or
           syslog (-L).

           This option turns off checks for the REVOKE bit.

       -no_error (-N)
           Send report even when there are no errors.

       -print (-p)
           Log messages to stdout.

       -resolv_conf_file conffile (-r)
           A resolv.conf file to read.  /dev/null can be specified to force libval to recursively
           answer the query rather than asking other name servers.)

       -root_hints_file /path/to/root.hints (-o)
           A root.hints file to read.

       -single_run (-S)
           Do not loop, but run only once.

       -sleeptime seconds (-t)
           The number of seconds to sleep between checks.  Default is 3600 (one hour.)

       -smtp_server smtpservername (-s)
           The SMTP server that trustman should use to send reports by mail.

       -syslog (-L)
           Log messages to syslog.

       -tmp_dir directory (-T)
           Specifies where temporary files should be created.  This is used when creating new
           versions of the dnsval.conf and named.conf files before they are moved into place.

           Files created in this directory will be renamed to their final location.  You should
           ensure that this directory, the final dnsval.conf location, and the final named.conf
           location are on the same disk partition.  Most operating systems will only rename
           files within a partition and will give an error if told to rename a file from one
           partition to another.

       -zone zone (-z)
           The zone to check.  Specifying this option supersedes the default configuration file.

       -help (-h)
           Display a help message.

       -verbose (-v)
           Gives verbose output.

       -Version (-V)
           Displays the version information for trustman and the DNSSEC-Tools package.


       In addition to the command line arguments, the dnssec-tools.conf file can be configured
       with the following values to remove the need to use some of the command-line options.  The
       command-line options always override the settings in the dnssec-tools.conf file.

       taanchorfile file
           This specifies the file where trustman state information will be kept.  This is
           equivalent to the -anchor_data_file flag.

       tacontact contact_email
           This is equivalent to the -mail_contact_addr flag for specifying to whom email notices
           will be sent.

       tadnsvalconffile file
           This specifies the dnsval.conf file to read and write.  This is equivalent to the
           -dnsval_conf_file flag.

       tanamedconffile file
           This specifies the named.conf file to read and write.  This is equivalent to the
           -named_conf_file flag.

       taresolvconffile file
           This specifies the resolv.conf file to use.  This is equivalent to the
           -resolv_conf_file flag.

       taroothintsfile file
           This specifies the root.hints file to read.  This is equivalent to the
           -root_hints_file flag.

       tasmtpserver servername
           This is equivalent to the -smtp_server flag for specifying the SMTP server to which
           email notices will be sent.

       tatmpdir directory
           This specifies where temporary files should be created.  This is used when creating
           new versions of the dnsval.conf and named.conf files before they're moved into place.

           See the note about renaming in the description of the -tmp_dir option.


       trustman may exit for the following reasons:

           0 - Successful execution.  In daemon mode, this may just mean
               that the daemon was successfully started.  The daemon itself
               may exit with some other error.

           1 - Invalid options were specified.

           2 - No new-key file was specified.

           3 - Unable to open the new-key file.

           4 - Unable to determine a set of zones to check.

           5 - Some form of file-management error was encountered.
