CURVEDNS-KEYGEN(1) CURVEDNS-KEYGEN(1)

NAME

curvedns-keygen - Generates a key pair for curvedns

SYNOPSIS

curvedns-keygen
curvedns-keygen path-of-CurveDNS-installation authoritative-name-server-name

DESCRIPTION

curvedns-keygen(1) is used to generate a keypair for use with curvedns(8). This command can be run in two different forms.
In the first form curvedns-keygen is run without parameters and prints the keys to standard output. An example output looks as follows:
In the second form, curvedns-keygen writes the secret key to a file that is suitable for use with the daemontools service manager in a subdirectory of path-of-CurveDNS-installation. It formats the output to already include the authoritative-name-server-name combined with the DNSCurve public key suitable for publication in the NS set of a DNS zone.
Note: On Debian users normally don´t need to run this command as a key is automatically generated during package installation. See /usr/share/doc/curvedns/README.Debian for more information.
