DMTF Releases DASH Conformance Test Suite 2.0

Continuing its dedication to management interoperability, DMTF has just released version 2.0 of the Conformance Test Suite (CTS) for its Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) standard

DASH provides secure out-of-band and remote management of desktop and mobile systems. The DASH CTS serves to improve interoperability by validating conforming implementations. The new DASH CTS 2.0 includes the necessary updates, policies and procedures to test the latest DASH specifications, which address current requirements for managing modern hardware in a networked environment.

With DASH CTS 2.0, companies can continue to self-test their implementations and submit digitally signed results to the DASH Conformance Program Administrator (an independent third party) for validation. Once validated, participants can have their submission information included in the DMTF Certification Registry.

Please visit the DMTF website to learn more about the DASH CTS. To learn more or to participate in the development of DMTF conformance programs for system management standards, please see the DMTF’s System Management Forum (SMF)
