A General Conformance Testing Framework for IEEE 11073 PHD's Communication Model



Raghu N. Kacker, Linbin Yu, Yu Lei, David R. Kuhn, Ram D. Sriram, Kevin G. Brady


ISO/IEEE 11073 Personal Health Data (IEEE 11073 PHD) is a set of standards that addresses the interoperability of personal healthcare devices. As an important part of IEEE 11073 PHD, ISO/IEEE 1107-20601 optimized exchange protocol (IEEE 11073-20601) defines how personal healthcare devices communicate with computing resources like PCs and set-top boxes. In this paper, we propose a general conformance testing framework for IEEE 11073-20601 protocol stack. This framework can be used to ensure that different implementations of the protocol stack conform to the specification and are thus able to interoperate with each other. We are developing a prototype research tool that applies the proposed framework to Antidote, an open-sourced IEEE 11073-20601 protocol stack. We report some preliminary testing results.
