DNSSEC | Server 2012 r2 | linux clients


I'm starting to investigate the use of DNSSEC on Windows Domain controllers / dns servers.

This environment has many linux clients.  Im reading through technet and it says that you have to distribute a trust anchor.

I am unable to see how this will work with Linux clients

Can you assist?

Have you read the article below as it talks about non-Windows clients:

For a client to take advantage of DNSSEC, you need a DNS resolver which actually pays attention to the DNSSEC records.  unbound is essentially the default client for Linux, and there is some information about the client and updating the anchor in the documentation.  (As an aside, when I was learning about DNSSEC, it was said that the majority of it's protection was between servers... that most client resolvers paid no attention to DNSSEC... and it wasn't until you started getting into Name Resolution Policy Tables that you started taking advantage of DNSSEC on the Windows-based workstation.)
