The Certification Test Suite is designed for the TCG Storage devices to follow the required behavior. This Test Suite follows the requirement of the specification defined in the “TCG Storage Opal SSC: Test Cases Specification Version 2.01, Revision 1.00” and the "Storage Certification Program Waiver List Rev_1_05" (TCG member login required) located in the TCG website.


The Opal Test Cases Specification contains a set of tests that are intended to verify the correct behavior of a storage device implementing the Opal SSC Specification. These test cases are intended to be used as a basis for the compliance component of the projected Storage certification program, which would seek to ensure a high level of interoperability of storage devices from multiple vendors.
