This release includes many new DNSSEC changes, including a new, simple “dnssec” flag that tells the server to send all the DNSSEC related resource records for the given zone, as well as include the AD flag indicating if the data is authentic. This is analogous to the “+dnssec” option on the command line dig command.
Setting “dnssec” to true makes Net_DNS2 automatically add an OPT record to the additional section of the request, with the DO bit set to 1, indicating that we would like the DNSSEC information related to the given zone.
$resolver = new Net_DNS2_Resolver(array('nameservers' => array('188.8.131.52'))); $resolver->dnssec = true; $result = $resolver->query('org', 'SOA', 'IN'); print_r($result);

You can see that the response includes the original OPT RR in the additional section, with the DO bit set to 1. The header section also includes the AD bit set to 1, indicating that the server considers the data authentic.
I’ve also included the ability to adjust the AD flag when making a query (to indicate to the server that we’d like the value of the AD bit, without having to set the DO bit in the OPT RR – see RFC6840 section 5.7), and to adjust the CD flag (telling the server that the client will perform it’s own signature validation).
Net_DNS2 does not validate the DNSSEC signatures itself, but it does provide all the data from DNS needed so that users can. Future versions of Net_DNS2 may provide support for this.

You can install Net_DNS2 version 1.3.0 directly from PEAR, using the command line PEAR installer:
