DNSSEC Debugger

Unlike DNSViz, Verisign's DNSSEC Debugger doesn't archive results, so here's a screenshot of my web browser's output from December 20, 2015:

OpenDNS & Google Public DNS

OpenDNS does not support DNSSEC, instead supporting DNSCurve. Google Public DNS currently supports only DNSSEC, and thus, Google's users saw SERVFAIL for queries under .mm during this outage.

With OpenDNS, queries succeed:

$ dig google.com.mm. @resolver1.opendns.com.

; <<>> DiG 9.4.2-P2 <<>> google.com.mm. @resolver1.opendns.com.
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:

With Google Public DNS, queries fail:
