    <para><command>dnssec-signzone</command>
      signs a zone.  It generates
      NSEC and RRSIG records and produces a signed version of the
      zone. The security status of delegations from the signed zone
      (that is, whether the child zones are secure or not) is
      determined by the presence or absence of a
      <filename>keyset</filename> file for each child zone.

            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".

            Any TTL higher than <replaceable>maxttl</replaceable> in the

            in the output. This provides certainty as to the largest
            possible TTL in the signed zone, which is useful to know when
            rolling keys because it is the longest possible time before
            signatures that have been retrieved by resolvers will expire
            from resolver caches.  Zones that are signed with this
            option should be configured to use a matching

            (Note: This option is incompatible with <option>-D</option>,

            When signing a zone with a fixed signature lifetime, all
            RRSIG records issued at the time of signing expires
            simultaneously.  If the zone is incrementally signed, i.e.
388 389
            a previously-signed zone is passed as input to the signer,
            all expired signatures have to be regenerated at about the

            regeneration over time.

            Signature lifetime jitter also to some extent benefits

            from all caches there will be less congestion than if all
            validators need to refetch at mostly the same time.

	    Using this option twice (i.e., <option>-AA</option>)
	    turns the OPTOUT flag off for all records.  This is useful

	    chain which previously had OPTOUT set.

	    Specify which keys should be used to sign the zone.  If
	    no keys are specified, then the zone will be examined
	    for DNSKEY records at the zone apex.  If these are found and
	    there are matching private keys, in the current directory,
	    then these will be used for signing.

      (Kexample.com.+003+17247).  Because the <command>-S</command> option
      is not being used, the zone's keys must be in the master file
      (<filename>db.example.com</filename>).  This invocation looks
      for <filename>dsset</filename> files, in the current directory,
      so that DS records can be imported from them (<command>-g</command>).
