EMAIL PROTOCOLS

Conformance Testing
  • Many implementations of protocols from different
    developers are functioning in the contemporary
    Internet
  • The reliability of data transfer substantially
    depends on implementations compatibility
  • The basic method of attesting implementations
    compatibility is conformance testing (testing to
    conform to the standard)

Mail Protocols Features
  • Mail protocols are underspecified
  • Mail protocols are nondeterministic
  • Mail protocols requirements differ in the level
    of obligations (MUST, SHOULD, MAY, )
  • Protocol architecture is extensible

8
Requirements for Test Suite
  • Requirements traceability
  • Availability of option defining the set of
    requirements supported by IUT
  • Completeness in terms of requirements coverage

9
Traditional Methodology of Conformance Testing
  • Test suite consists of formal given tests which
    are not connected to the implementation
  • Connections between requirements and test
    purposes and between test purposes and their
    tests are informal
  • Test purposes describe situations to be tested.
    Test purpose is realized in one or several tests
  • Implementation is considered to conform to the
    standard if all test purposes have been passed

UniTESK Technology
  • Specifications formalize requirements as pre- and
    postconditions
  • From specifications test oracles are generated
  • Test sequence is generated from test state
    machine traversal
  • Observable behavior is automatically verified by
    test oracles

Method for Mail Protocols Conformance Testing
Developing of elementary tests
Creation of requirements catalogue
Designing of lite protocol model
Building test state machine with dedicated states
Requirements formalization
Enhancement of scenario and specification
Execution of test suites and analyzing the results

Results
  • Number of main requirements
  • SMTP RFC 5321, 51 requirements
  • POP3 RFC 1939, 58 requirements
  • Size of the test suite
  • Specifications SMTP 1400 lines, POP3 1600 lines
  • Test scenarios 7 scenarios, 2500 lines total
  • Mediators 3000 lines
  • Implementations tested
  • James 5 defects revealed
  • HMail 2 defects revealed

22
Method Analysis the Lows
  • The absence of quick test suites updating ability
    (but after all preparations have done one got not
    a single test but a set of tests responsible for
    certain requirements class)
  • Formal specification description is very
    laborious process

23
Method Analysis the Advantages
  • High order of reusing test suite components
  • Test oracles
  • Test data iterators
  • Automated generation of test sequences
  • Automated calculation of reached test coverage
  • Automated verdict pronouncement

24
Conclusion
  • The method for test sequence generation for email
    protocols implementation testing is presented
  • Test suite for conformance testing of email
    protocols is constructed
  • The following disagreements between email
    implementations and standards were detected
  • Absence of required commands supporting
  • Protocol rules violation
  • Wrong reply codes to the protocol commands
  • Cycling while redirecting mail
