8.1.8. IPv6 test specification Scope

The IPv6 test area will evaluate the ability for a SUT to support IPv6 Tenant Network features and functionality. The tests in this test area will evaluate,

  • network, subnet, port, router API CRUD operations

  • interface add and remove operations

  • security group and security group rule API CRUD operations

  • IPv6 address assignment with dual stack, dual net, multiprefix in mode DHCPv6 stateless or SLAAC References Definitions and abbreviations

The following terms and abbreviations are used in conjunction with this test area

  • API - Application Programming Interface

  • CIDR - Classless Inter-Domain Routing

  • CRUD - Create, Read, Update, and Delete

  • DHCP - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

  • DHCPv6 - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol version 6

  • ICMP - Internet Control Message Protocol

  • NFVI - Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure

  • NIC - Network Interface Controller

  • RA - Router Advertisements

  • radvd - The Router Advertisement Daemon

  • SDN - Software Defined Network

  • SLAAC - Stateless Address Auto Configuration

  • TCP - Transmission Control Protocol

  • UDP - User Datagram Protocol

  • VM - Virtual Machine

  • vNIC - virtual Network Interface Card System Under Test (SUT)

The system under test is assumed to be the NFVI and VIM deployed with a Pharos compliant infrastructure. Test Area Structure

The test area is structured based on network, port and subnet operations. Each test case is able to run independently, i.e. irrelevant of the state created by a previous test. Test Descriptions API Used and Reference
