EAP Certification Program (ECP) Testing Overview

The procedures that are presented in this section outline the process for testing with the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) Certification Program (ECP) for proper functionality with the Microsoft Windows operating system. These procedures use the Microsoft Windows Logo Kit (WLK) and Driver Test Manager (DTM). To ensure full functionality, you must run all of the tests that the DTM identifies as required for the device.

Note  You must use the latest version of the WDK to compile your driver in order for it to pass testing and obtain a logo.

The test procedures are divided into the following types of topics:

Overview: The ECP uses the Windows User Mode Device Framework to install an ECP virtual device bus and to bind Logo-certified EAP methods and network supplicants to user-mode virtual devices. By using this approach, you can install the EAP methods and network supplicants by using the INF/driver mechanism of the operating system. Optionally, you can also use the Windows Update (WU) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) driver distribution systems to maintain your driver compatibility.

Preparing: The ECP requires that the server and test clients are appropriately configured. The Preparing for EAP Certification Program (ECP) Testing topic describes how to configure your testing environment.

Running: The Running the EAP Certification Program (ECP) Tests topic describes how to run the ECP.
