ICANN has recently released a design that allows researchers to easily test multiple resolver programs for things such as how they handle DNSSEC trust anchors and how they choose root servers from priming queries. The testbed can include common open-source resolver software, but also handles any resolvers that can be run in a virtual machine such as Windows Server and other proprietary software. It automatically captures packet traces and allows for easy running of multiple resolvers (such as "all resolvers that do DNSSEC validation"). The testbed is under active development, and ICANN welcomes extensions to the types of testing that it can perform.
