    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes the requirements and gives guidance for the production of system-independent conformance test suites for one or more OSI International Standards or CCITT Recommendations. Applicable to the production of all conformance testing standards for OSI and ISDN two-party protocols, including all draft versions of such conformance testing standards. Applicable to the production of conformance test cases which check the conformance of an implementation to the relevant static and/or dynamic conformance requirements by controlling and observing protocol behaviour.
