All IP Addresses Are Equal? "dot-zero" Addresses Are Less Equal
In theory, all IP addresses are the same, and you can allocate them at random without a problem. 192.168.1.2 is certainly not better or worse than 192.168.1.15, right? But, in practice, certain IP addresses are regarded as "special" by some implementations and do not yield the same user experience.…
Thanks for these very interesting measurements. Really useful. But I disagree with your use of the same term ("TTL violations") for the increase and the decrease of the TTL. A TTL is a *maximum*. A resolver is always free to keep the data for a *shorter* time, for instance because it reboots, or because the cache is full and it has to evict some data. It's only the increase of the TTL which is a protocol violation. Decreasing the TTL, like Amazon does systematically, is bad manners, it transfers costs to someone else, it is selfish, but it is not a protocol violation.

This is apparently because a known ECS bug https://github.com/getdnsapi/getdns/issues/357 already fixed in the code repository.
“DNSDB link mentioned is only for account holders. Can we get the information about previous usage of 220.127.116.11 from any other source, which don't need an account ?”
DNSDB is subscription-only. But there are some gratis "passive DNS" databases such as https://passivedns.cn/ or https://www.circl.lu/services/passive-dns/
I modified a bit my tools (following Vesna Manojlovic's excellent talk at RIPE NCC Educa yesterday https://www.ripe.net/support/training/ripe-ncc-educa) to implement the options required for "TCP ping". See https://labs.ripe.net/Members/stephane_bortzmeyer/using-ripe-atlas-to-debug-network-connectivity-problems for a description of these tools/.

Strange problem with a Knot resolver: only orange (open padlock) dots.

It's with BIND that I get the most green dots: even GOST works fully: https://framapic.org/7UIoLRIEQelV/ci1qZP1I94FA.png The only missing stuff is the Bernstein crypto.
With my Unbound resolver, I get results similar to yours but with Google Public DNS, it's more fun: https://framapic.org/HpnX0WIfdiMl/An1vwwGtuDXb.png Google handles GOST DS but not GOST signatures. Also, it SERVFAILs for RSA-MD5 signatures.
@Chris Your site cannot be visited with some browsers. A recent Firefox says "www.chaz6.com uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. Advanced info: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP" And if I try to proceed anyway, I get a SSL_ERROR_INAPPROPRIATE_FALLBACK_ALERT Then, many of the resolvers you publish are not *open* resolvers but *public* resolvers, resolvers *intended* to be queryable by anyone (such as Google Public DNS). We can therefore assume they have good protections against being used a reflector (monitoring, rate limiting, etc). Also, I tested at random some of the addresses and most seem to timeout or to return REFUSED. Open resolvers come and go.
Regarding the women participation in dnsop, there is also the co-chair, Suzanne Woolf. Regarding NSEC5, it provides indeed "good protection against zone enumeration" but not with "a better rate of online key signing", but with a cute cryptographic hack, the VRF (Verifiable Random Functions). Unlike NSEC3, VRF requires on-line signing (but it provides a better protection). (And there is also NSEC3 with white lies, but I stop here.)
Sunday was also the second day of the IETF hackathon, which started on Saturday. Two days of hacking, fourteen teams, something like fifty or sixty people locked in a room, with a lot of coffee and good meals appearing from time to time, thanks to the sponsors. During the hackathon, people were able to develop recent IETF techniques, sometimes published in RFC, sometimes still at the draft stage, where actual implementation experience helps a lot to sort out the good ideas from the bad. For instance, the WebRTC people were working on end-to-end encryption of the media (a touchy subject, for sure, after the recent anti-encryption stances of the british authorities), DNS people developed various stuff about DNS-over-TLS, TLS people were of course busy implementing the future TLS 1.3 (even in a Haskell library), CAPPORT people programmed their solution to make evil captive portals more network-(and user)-friendly, LoRaWAN people started to write a Wireshark dissector for this IoT protocol, etc. That was my first hackathon and I appreciated the freedom (you can hack on what you want but is is of course more fun if you do it with other people), and the efficiency (no distractions, just coding and discussions between developpers). Doing a bug report to a library developer by shouting over the table is certainly faster than filing it in Gitlab :-)
