> 1.	 Generated KSK and ZSK
> 2.	Add both of keys at the end of my zone file
> 3.	signing my zone with dnssec-signzone command
> 4.	enable dnssec in named options
> 5.	change the name of my zone in the named by namezone.signed
> 6.	I got the root DNSKEY RR set before with dig command and redirect the outpout in root-dnskey file
> 7.	I turned the DNSKEY into DS RR set also, with dnssec-dsfromkey command.

Also consider simplifying the process as follows:
1.	Generate KSK and ZSK, setting timing metadata so that they are published and active. See dnssec-keygen and dnssec-settime.
2.	Place the key files in a key directory on your server.
3.	Add to your zone configuration: key directory "<path to key files>"; auto-dnssec maintain;
4.	Generate DS records and provide them to your registrar.
