GPRS Tunneling Protocol (GTP) is a tunneling protocol which is used in UMTS/GPRS backbone network and in EPC. It is divided in two separate protocols: GTP-C and GTP-U. GTP-C is used in GPRS core network for signaling between different network nodes. GTP-U is used for carrying user data. This Test Suite is used to send anomalous responses to the requests sent by the test target.

Tested interfaces (GTPv1-C control plane)
Notes
Gn GGSN

Test suite acts as GGSN, waits requests from SGSN or GTP-MAP protocol converting GSN and delivers GTPv1-C responses towards SGSN or GTP-MAP protocol converting GSN.

Gn SGSN

Test suite acts as SGSN, waits requests from GGSN or SGSN and delivers GTPv1-C responses towards GGSN or SGSN.

Gn GTP-MAP protocol converting GSN

Test suite acts as GTP-MAP protocol converting GSN, waits requests from GGSN and delivers GTPv1-C responses towards GGSN.
