Viewing key details

Review general information of a ZSK or KSK.

To view ZSK/KSK details:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. From the DNS or IP Space tab, navigate to a DNS zone or reverse zone.
  3. Select the DNSSEC tab.
  4. Under Zone Signing Keys or Key Signing Keys, click the number of a key. The DNSSEC Key Properties page opens.
    The General section shows the following information about the DNSSEC key:
    • Object ID—the system identification number for the DNSSEC key.
    • Active—indicates the status of the key. Yes indicates that the key is currently active. No indicates that the key is not active; either its start time has not yet been reached, or its expiry date has elapsed.
    • Algorithm—indicates the algorithm used to generate the key.
    • Created Time—indicates the date and time the key was generated.
    • Expiry Time—indicates the date and time at which the key expires.
    • Key Tag—provides the key tag data for the key. The key tag is used during DNSSEC validation and when signing and resigning zones.
    • Length (bits)—indicates the number of bits in the key.
    • Public Key—displays the key text.
    • Start Time—indicates the date and time for the beginning of the key’s validity period. The start time is always midnight of the day you created the key.
    • TTL—indicates the TTL (time to live) for the key if an override TTL is specified when the key is created.
