Fix Recommendation

Resign the child zone files and have the zone administrator provide updated DS resource records for the child zone.

If the server is in a classified network, this is Not Applicable.
Note: This requirement does not validate the sig-validity-interval. This requirement ensures the signature validity period (i.e., the time from the signature’s inception until the signature’s expiration). It is recommended to ensure the Start of Authority (SOA) expire period (how long a secondary will still treat its copy of the zone data as valid if it cannot contact the primary.) is configured to ensure the SOA does not expire during the period of signature inception and signature expiration.

With the assistance of the DNS Administrator, identify the RRSIGs that cover the DS resource records for each child zone.

Each record will list an expiration and inception date, the difference of which will provide the validity period.

The dates are listed in the following format:

YYYYMMDDHHMMSS

For each RRSIG identified, verify that the validity period is no less than two days and is no longer than seven days.

If the validity period is outside of the specified range, this is a finding.
