BIND 8 has support for serving a signed zone only. The tools to sign
zones are rubbish and almost entirely undocumented.
BIND 9 serves signed zones without a (known) problem, the complementary
tools are approaching useable and it has experimental support for
DNSSEC-aware recursive resolution.
Both BIND 8 and 9 fully support TSIG --- shared secret hashing.
NL Labs have done a lot of work in this area.
