Primary Resource for: SD-WAN, SD-WAN Certification

Product Portfolio: SD-WAN Certification, SD-WAN

Standard Type: Test Requirements & Abstract Test Suites


This document describes the MEF Secure SD-WAN certification test requirements to validate conformance with the Application Flow Security for SD-WAN Services (MEF 88) [3]. The Secure SD-WAN Certification Test Requirements standard is functional, and hence implementation-independent.

Each requirement in MEF 88 Application Security for SD-WAN Services has been analyzed to determine the value and testability of verifying conformance. Requirements traceability has been maintained to ensure that each of the MEF 88 (and other MEF standards) requirements deemed valuable and testable are covered by one or more certification test requirements (specified in this standard), detailed test requirements (specified in the ACTP Test Plan), and the test case implementations (ACTP Test Suite).

As such, the document is an important aid to service providers to prepare for successful certification of their services and products to verify conformance with MEF 88 standard.

The Secure SD-WAN Certification Test Requirements are intended to accelerate MEF 88 standards and market adoption, to achieve a rich open ecosystem.

The Secure SD-WAN Certification Test Requirements Standard adopts the conventions and concepts introduced in the MEF 88 and MEF 70.1 standards.
