Archived TD0181: NIT Technical Decision for Self-testing of integrity of firmware and software.
NDcPP V1.0, FWcPP V1.0, ND SD V1.0, FPT_TST_EXT.1
The Network Interpretations Team (NIT) has issued a technical decision regarding self-testing of integrity of firmware and software in NDcPP v1.0 and FW cPP v1.0.
To align with NIT interpretation # 201644, the following guidance is issued.
FPT_TST_EXT.1 has been defined in a generic way because implementations for self-tests are often implementation specific. Therefore, the expectation on self-testing is described in the Application Note. This could be regarded as defining additional requirements in the Application Note which should be avoided in cPPs. This sort of change to the self-test requirement requires work by the full Network iTC to create an updated version of the SFR in a future version of the cPP, and is beyond the intended scope of an interpretation by the NIT. Self-testing needs therefore to be done according to the current definition of the SFR and Application Note.
