Hi Vladimir,

Yes, NSD supports that.  Because NSD is designed to copy the data to the
client, the signatures and the DNSKEY data can be sent straight away.

The support itself consists of code to parse identifiers used when
reading the zone file.  If that concluded successfully, then the further
operations should be unproblematic.

ldns-keygen and ldns-signzone have been updated in the code repository
with the new algorithms.

Best regards, Wouter
