35<p>
36      Versions of BIND 9 up to and including BIND 9.6 had a bug causing
37      HMAC-SHA* TSIG keys which were longer than the digest length of the
38      hash algorithm (i.e., SHA1 keys longer than 160 bits, SHA256 keys
39      longer than 256 bits, etc) to be used incorrectly, generating a
40      message authentication code that was incompatible with other DNS
41      implementations.
42    </p>
43<p>
44      This bug has been fixed in BIND 9.7.  However, the fix may
45      cause incompatibility between older and newer versions of
46      BIND, when using long keys.  <span><strong class="command">isc-hmac-fixup</strong></span>
47      modifies those keys to restore compatibility.
48    </p>
49<p>
50      To modify a key, run <span><strong class="command">isc-hmac-fixup</strong></span> and
51      specify the key's algorithm and secret on the command line.  If the
52      secret is longer than the digest length of the algorithm (64 bytes
53      for SHA1 through SHA256, or 128 bytes for SHA384 and SHA512), then a
54      new secret will be generated consisting of a hash digest of the old
55      secret.  (If the secret did not require conversion, then it will be
56      printed without modification.)

60<a name="id2543376"></a><h2>SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS</h2>
61<p>
62      Secrets that have been converted by <span><strong class="command">isc-hmac-fixup</strong></span>
63      are shortened, but as this is how the HMAC protocol works in
64      operation anyway, it does not affect security.  RFC 2104 notes,
65      "Keys longer than [the digest length] are acceptable but the
66      extra length would not significantly increase the function
67      strength."
