The documentation is now hosted on a separate website. The documentation for the latest release of OpenDNSSEC can be found here.

The documentation for OpenDNSSEC gives information on how to install, configure, and run OpenDNSSEC. There might still remain some questions, so we try to reflect them in our a growing list of frequently asked questions.


The latest documentation for SoftHSM is also on the documentation website and is available here.


Remember that you also need an HSM, which uses the PKCS#11 interface. We do provide the SoftHSM, a software-only implementation of an HSM.

Read the HSM Buyer’s Guide for more information and consult the list of HSM vendors.
