The Validating Stub Resolver (vsResolver) is a DNS stub resolver that implements the Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) specified in RFC 4033, RFC 4034 and RFC 4035. These add data origin authentication and data integrity to the Domain Name System. vsResolver extends the dnspython toolkit (http://www.dnspython.org/) and uses the pycrypto library for its underlying crypto implementation(https://www.dlitz.net/software/pycrypto/).

Click on this link for a ridiculously simple python page demonstrating vsResolver working - http://superawesum.novas.us/py/hello.py. Try entering some domains and click submit. Then, enable details, click submit to get the details,and compare with what you get for that domain at http://dnssec-debugger.verisignlabs.com.
