BIND DNS Issues with DNSSEC File Permissions

- Resolving File Permission Issues with BIND DNS and DNSSEC

[BIND // Fedora 27-30] The problem shown below, permission denied when trying to dump the master file (along with the creation of potentially thousands of .tmp files within the named directory), can be resolved by removing the Sticky Bit on /var/named folder, with file permissions set to 7701, and recursive group ownership set to named, with all subdirectory file permissions set to 770. Follow this up with: systemctl restart named, rndc reload, systemctl restart named and check /var/named/data/named.run for any further errors.
dumping master file: rename: named.insurgent.info: permission denied
dumping master file: rename: named.insurgent.info: permission denied
dumping master file: rename: named.insurgent.info: permission denied
dumping master file: rename: named.insurgent.info: permission denied


[ 1 ] Ordinarily there should be no reason whatsoever for the named directory files to be world-readable, hence 770.
