Dear all,

as in the years before, we promoted Titan on a number of workshops and conferences this fall; I will report about these conferences below from the somewhat restricted angle of Titan usage and applications.

UCAAT (User Conference on Advanced Automated testing) organized by ETSI and hosted by Fraunhofer Fokus ,held between the 11th and 13th of October in Berlin carried the slogan "Tackling testing challenges in the age of connected things" and thus, unsurprisingly, revolved around model based testing, TTCN-3 and IoT:

ETSI TC MTS has approved the creation of a new IoT testing working group.
The kick-off meeting of the new working group was held on 23rd October, with many new members Audi, Dekra, relayr, Fraunhofer IPK (manufacturing research) and Sintesio.
The need for an IoT testing and certification landscape in general, and concrete protocols ( MQTT, CoAP, OPC-UA and LWM2M ) in need of test scenarios were identified. Workshop session were held in the topics of use cases (smart cities, smart buildings, special use of wearables etc.), interoperability, testing and certification, IoT security and privacy, connectivity (in non-licensed spectrum and LTE NB-IoT) and business aspects.

Two presentations that were of interest from our point of view:

reported about TDL (Test Description Language) , which is a modeling language on its' way to be standardized by ETSI representing a special interest as mapping to TTCN-3 will also be standardized, permitting direct conversion of TDL models into TTCN-3 code.

introduced RIoT , an IoT load generator framework based on Titan to be soon open sourced; we will come back with details later.

From the posters session , the poster signed by
Jens Grabowski, Tomas Urban, Kristóf Szabados, György Réthy, Julien Deltour and Jacob Wieland (Modernizing TTCN-3) roadmapped the future evolution of the language.

ETSI IoT week , an IoT centered workshop took place at ETSI's Headquarters in Sophia Antipolis, South of France. between the 23rd and 26th of October:

Of interest to us was Session 5: IoT Testing and Certification , session chair: Franck Le Gall, Easy Global Market
by Axel Rennoch, Fraunhofer FOKUS & György Réthy, Ericsson discussed the Eclipse open-source IoT test ecosystem IoT-T

presented the ARMOUR 2020 IoT security test initiative using Titan and a modeling tool CertifyIT

by Prof. Song JaeSeung from Sejong University & KETI discussed test and certification of IoT; Song is also part of the oneM2Mtester project based on Titan:

Netdev 2.2, The Technical Conference on Linux Networking was held in Seoul, Korea , November 8th to 10th, 2017 at SpaceShare Daechi Center.

As we don't have first hand experience about this conference being (unofficially but graciously) represented there by Harald Welte

I will reproduce here a report from one of the participants
Netdev 2.2 day 2 report []

TTCN-3 and Eclipse TITAN for testing protocol stacks
Presenter: Harald Welte
Reporter: Hajime Tazaki
"Harald Welte, who has been working in the telecom area for a decade now, started his talk by introducing the importance of protocol testing, especially in the telecom area because of the large number of
protocols used in that space. He introduced TTCN-3 which is a domain-specific language just for protocol conformance tests.
Eclipse TITAN is an open source tool chain released by Ericsson in 2015 which supports TTCN-3.
Harald then walked through the language definition and functionality of TTCN-3. The TTCN-3 language is designed with a comprehensive type system, powerful program control statements, a template system, run-time executor for parallel test components (to speed up testing), etc. It is also powerful with the abstracted encoder and decoder to verify that the contents of incoming packets are what a test expected.
Harald then shared his experience with an example test code of a real use case.
His demo showed a test for a standardized protocol implementation, Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP, RFC3435). Harald showed how he utilized the language features for MGCP testing.
A question was asked if there is an experience to test the Linux kernel network stack. Harald then shared his experience of testing the connection tracking feature of netfilter subsystem,
which is highlighting the usefulness of the tool and the language."

See also Haralds' reflection on the subsect in:

Finally , HUSTEF 2017 , the Hungarian Software Testing Forum conference was held between 13-15 November 2017, where else, in Budapest , with over 650 participants from 25 countries

The session on the Technology track presented by
Balazs Supola, Sigma Technology Hungary & Lénárd Nagy, Ericsson Hungary: Testing a Moon Rover with the Open Source Titan Framework
talked about using Titan in testing embedded applications of space-certified projects.
Again, a project I hope we will hear more in the future.

Best regards

Hi Elemer, thank you for the report.
I can't wait to hear more about RIoT , the IoT load generator framework based on Titan to be soon open sourced.
