Security Test Suites for P25

Overview

The Valid8 Security Test Suites are suitable for auditing security of P25 network nodes including Console, RFSS, IWF, according to standards including TIA.

What It Can Do For You

The solution is capable of simulating and testing various different devices including:

  • Radio & RFSS
  • Console
  • IWF

The tool provides comprehensive checks and measurements including Request-Response times that are used to grade performance, which in conjunction with a user-configurable threshold can be used to determine a PASS/FAIL result.

Why It’s Different

  • Scalable software-based architecture can run on a range of hardware from COTS and high-end customer provided hardware to Virtual Machines and the Cloud (e.g. Amazon AWS) for maximum versatility and performance
  • Web-based UI is easy to learn
  • HTTP API enable integration with automation test systems and other equipment
  • Stateful modeling provides accurate emulation of network elements

Features

  • Pre-made test scenarios and procedures
  • PASS / FAIL analysis, including plain English diagnostic reason
  • Valid / Invalid testing
  • Customizable source-code
  • User-configurable proprietary messages, IEs, headers
  • Animated test results action-replay
  • Easy to configure
  • Automatic execution of test batches
  • UDP, TCP, SCTP transport layer IPv4/IPv6 support
  • Suitable for Development and QA test lab environments, verifying protocol compliance, negative and robustness testing, Regression testing and Reproducing customer issues in the field

Subsystems

Valid8 Security Test Suites are comprised of multiple subsystems that can be activated as needed to test the DUT. Traffic can be captured through the use of a remote capture tool such as Wireshark.

KPIs
  • Test Verdict - Pass, Fail or Inconclusive 
  • Detailed message field validation
Configurable Parameters
  • IP address and port
  • Network layer- IPv4 / IPv6
  • Transport layer- UDP / TCP / SCTP / TLS
  • Phone numbers
  • Authentication - username and password
  • Unexpected message handling - Stop / Continue

Automation API

User commands can be fully automated using an HTTP API. This includes all control functions as well as collection of results and metrics. It can be integrated into any CI system including Jenkins, CircleCI, Gitlab and others. Our Autom8 Python framework is included to ease integration.

Scripting

The application can be edited directly in the browser using VTDL using Composer, a powerful development environment that includes error checking and a graphical view easing the creation and modification of scenarios. Codec Studio can be used to quickly build message templates from raw PDUs, as captured by tcpdump for example, to use in the scenarios.

Use Cases

P25 Console (CSS) Under Test

For testing the P25 Console (CSS), the Valid8 Tester can generate SIP/RTP/Floor Control calls on CSSI to test conformance, performance and stability.

Supported Scenarios:
  • Client Server single-ended
  • Client end-to-end

P25 RFSS Under Test

For testing the P25 RFSS, the Valid8 Tester can generate SIP/RTP/Floor Control calls on ISSI to test conformance, performance and stability.

Supported Scenarios:
  • Client Server single-ended
  • Client end-to-end
