[Opendnssec-user] NSEC3 algorithm not supported in BIND 9.7.3?

Hi Antonio,

My apologies, I thought you were talking about the DNSSEC algorithm
numbers. For that, you want to use 7 (RSASHA1-NSEC3-SHA1) and for
hashing indeed, only number 1 (SHA-1) is defined. So in kasp.xml, you
need something like:



    <Algorithm length="1024">7</Algorithm>

    <Algorithm length="1024">7</Algorithm>

Best regards,
