4.4. nsec3hash --- NSEC3 hash generator

4.4.1. Synopsis

nsec3hash <salt> <algorithm> <iterations> <domain>

4.4.2. Description

nsec3hash generates an NSEC3 hash based on a set of NSEC3 parameters. This can be used to check the validity of NSEC3 records in a signed zone.

4.4.3. Options


The salt provided to the hash algorithm.


A number indicating the hash algorithm. Currently the only supported hash algorithm for NSEC3 is SHA-1, which is indicated by the number 1; consequently "1" is the only useful value for this argument.


The number of additional times the hash should be performed.


The domain name to be hashed.
