SMI-S Conformance Testing Program
SNIA validates that a company's products conform to a particular version of the SMI-S specification for storage management using the SMI-Provider Test.
The SMI-Provider Test is a collection of file driven test scripts written by SNIA. The scripts validate conformance to SMI-S profile rules, use of combinations of profiles and use of the profile rules to complete simple data storage tasks such as allocating a LUN to a server or setting and verifying the configuration of a SAN switch.
The SMI-Provider Test also verifies the conformance of important management software infrastructure to rules associated with the use of cyphersuites. The cypher suite rules are decribed in SNIA's TLS specification.
Important Message for Storage Buyers! - You should be asking your vendor for products which conform to the latest version of the SMI-Provider Test so that you know you are getting software which passes the proper security tests. Here is a list of versions that contain the security tests. Look for versions of 188.8.131.523 or higher and 184.108.40.2063 or higher.
