I'm not sure why you decided to do that, but I can tell you that what
you're reading is massively out of date.  If you want to generate a TSIG
key, use "tsig-keygen". It uses an appropriate source of randomness and
produces output in a format suitable for use in named.conf.

What was the source of the information you found?
