DMTF Releases DASH Conformance Test Suite Update

Recently, DMTF continued its ongoing dedication to management interoperability with the release of new versions of the Conformance Test Suite (CTS) for its Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware (DASH) standard. DASH CTS 2022.1 (Java versions 8 and 9) is available, and the DMTF Certification Registry is accepting submissions.

Providing secure out-of-band and remote management of desktop and mobile systems using the Web Services for Management (WS-Management) standard, DASH addresses current requirements for managing modern hardware in a networked environment. The DASH CTS serves to improve interoperability by validating conforming implementations. 

In the DASH Conformance Program companies 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 DASH CTS. To learn more or to participate in the development of DMTF conformance programs for system management standards, please see DMTF’s CIM Forum.
