So, the interesting part is:
dig @dns1.chinatelecom.com.cn. www.facebook.com.
www.facebook.com. 11556 IN A 188.8.131.52
www.facebook.com. 24055 IN A 184.108.40.206
www.facebook.com. 38730 IN A 220.127.116.11
and the note that:
"None of these IP addresses has anything to do with Facebook. In
fact, addresses starting with 37 haven't even been allocated by IANA as
of this writing. "
Whether or not this is evidence that i-root is serving wrong answers, or
that packets are being modified in flight, or that "dns1.chinatelecom.com.cn"
is answering with forged answers is irrelevant.
DNSSEC was designed to deal with all three issues.
Until we have DNSSEC, we won't know if Renesys was right or wrong.
(The relevance of the note is more relevant to IPv6 advocates... )
