Why does this project exist ?

the IPP++ DME test suite is a N.I.S.T initiative. Although N.I.S.T has initiated this project, it was important to offer this project to the community as an open-source project. A number of developers from N.I.S.T are working on this project, but any I++ dme implementor is welcome to participate too.
This project is intended to provide a testing suite for the I++ implementer, and for people in charge of the I++ conformance and compliance test between system. The source code provided here can also be used by I++ commercial implementation if necessary. We believe that a join effort between all I++ implementers will help establishing I++ as a robust and recognised standard in the industry.
Currently the work on the I++ testing suite is coordinated by NIST. You can contact:
