Detailed Description

General key structure, can contain all types of keys that are used in DNSSEC.

Mostly used to store private keys, since public keys can also be stored in a ldns_rr with type LDNS_RR_TYPE_DNSKEY.

This structure can also store some variables that influence the signatures generated by signing with this key, for instance the inception date.
