OpenDKIM is used to sign e-mail messages. It is able to fetch DKIM private keys from an LDAP Server. opendkim-manage is intended to write such private keys into an LDAP Server. opendkim-genzone - an OpenDKIM utility - is able to fetch these DKIM private keys from the LDAP Server, extract the public DKIM key and create files suitable for use with named(8) to publish these public keys in your DNS zone. If your OpenDKIM box has direct access to a primary DNS server, opendkim-manage can also do dynamic zone updates. Currently only one DNS server is supported.
This packages is (will be) well tested on Debian 9 (Stretch) and SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (SLES_11). The following packages have to be pre-installed:
apt-get install --no-install-recommends python-setuptools apt-get install --no-install-recommends python-dnspython apt-get install --no-install-recommends python-ldap apt-get install --no-install-recommends python-m2crypto
If you want to use the
--color option, you also need to install:
apt-get install --no-install-recommends python-colorama
opendkim-manage is a tool to mange DKIM keys stored in OpenLDAP. It uses a modified version of the OpenDKIM LDAP schema, which is also shipped with this release. You can find the schema in the contrib folder as well as a sample configuration file. Please see also the README.md file there for a structural overview.
There is nothing much to install. Simply place the
somewhere into your bin-path, for example /usr/local/sbin. Edit your
configuration and you are fine.
If you have tested the functionaility, you may add a cron job at the end that runs once a day:
@daily /usr/local/sbin/opendkim-manage --auto
