    Abstract

    Testing traditionally focuses on specific aspects of a system separately, such as functional conformance, robustness and performance. In this paper, we present a protocol test automation framework that considers these different viewpoints as a whole. It starts with a common architecture for protocol testing at different scales. A set of test models on top of this architecture are presented for addressing the different types of testing. Each of these models builds on top of another, starting with conformance testing, followed by robustness testing and finally overall performance testing. We apply the framework to session initiation protocol (SIP).
