OpenDNSSEC was created as an open-source turn-key solution for DNSSEC. It secures zone data just before it is published in an authoritative name server.
Information about announcements, bug reporting and mailing lists can be found at http://www.opendnssec.org/support/.
OpenDNSSEC depends on a number of external packages:
- libxml2 (including xmllint)
To run OpenDNSSEC, one must have at least one crypto module providing a PKCS#11 library, e.g. SoftHSM (http://www.opendnssec.org/softHSM)
When building from the source code repository, the following dependencies are also needed:
- A Java runtime environment (JRE/JDK)
Building from the source code repository
If the code is downloaded directly from the source code repository (git), you have to prepare the configuration scripts before continuing with build:
- Install automake, autoconf and libtool.
- Run the command autogen.sh to build configure scripts etc.
