ISSUE-9: Develop WebID Test Suite

Develop WebID Test Suite

State:
OPEN
Product:
WebID-authn-TLS-spec
Raised by:
Henry Story
Opened on:
2011-01-29
Description:
To develop a test suite to test WebID Profiles and authentication endpoints.

These should make sure that authentication endpoints do not authorise access to people with fake or broken WebIDs, that profiles published parse, that profiles published in multiple representations say the same thing, and so on.

Perhaps we can do some tests client side too.

Currently it takes too much human time to test new WebID implementations, and these can go down or suffer for some reason. It would be very useful to have a way to quickly and automatically determine the reqsons of failure.

A key deliverable.

There were some tests out there already. Something to place in the mercurial repository.

Related notes:

Also add test suites for client certificates. It is not easy and obvious to write client certificates that are correct. It will certainly help implementors to have such a test suite.
