IPv6 Tools and Test Materials
This is the beginning of a set of tools and test software for IPv6.
They should be useful for IPv6 implementations and IPv6 protocol
testers, both for those as part of the
USG IPv6 test program
and for independent efforts.
USGv6 2014 Client Tester
A set of tools and scripts which can be used to demonstrate client
system IPv6 capability, of the sort required by the 2014 mandate.
IPv6 Test Samples
1. The first released sample was based on Fedora 11. It is described
in more detail here. Here are the
instrumented additions created for this sample:
2. The second released sample is based on Fedora 14. It is described
in more detail here. Currently only
the test image itself is provided, but instrumented additions
will be available soon.
- NIST instrumented test kernel 220.127.116.11-102.usgtest.2
This is the Linux kernel from the Fedora
11 distribution, instrumented with certain run-time configurable testing
hooks/defects in its IPv6 implementation. Here is a
specific list of the Fedora package versions used in
creating this reference sample.
The design documentation
includes a complete description of the testing hooks added.
Current version: usgtest.2 (third release, 16 Dec 2009)
Provided in i586, i686 (PAE), x86_64 and source code formats.
The MRD6 IPv6 Multicast Routing Daemon This
is a routing daemon which includes support for MLDv2. It is based
on the latest version
from the original author, Hugo Santos, with some minor
RPM packaging and configuration changes. Eventually, it will
include testing instrumentation as well.
Current version: 0.9.6-1.3.0 (initial
revision from the Debian release, 15 Jan 2010). Provided in i586, i686, x86_64
and source code formats. Binaries were built on Fedora 11 systems.
The second release includes a patch for SA_INIT processing which
is necessary for a number of the conformance tests to pass. The
third release includes ipsec-tools, for those who wish to use
it; it should otherwise produce the same testing results as
the second release.
IPv6 Test Tools and Code
Here are some additional tools and code samples useful for IPv6.
Other IPv6 resources
Here are other resources of interest to the testing program.
