hash-zone-record ZONE RNAME
This convenience command hashes the name 'recordname' according to the NSEC3 settings of ZONE. Refuses to hash for zones with no NSEC3 settings.
import-zone-key ZONE FILE [ksk|zsk]

If running in RSASHA1 mode (algorithm 5 or 7), switching from NSEC to NSEC3 will require a DS update at the parent zone!
set-presigned ZONE
