Telnet Server Test Suite Data Sheet
Test Suite:
Telnet Server Test Suite
Direction:
Server

The Telnet protocol provides bi-directional general purpose text interface, which uses TCP for transport. Telnet is an older protocol, but it is still often implemented, for example as configuration interface on network equipment. This test suite can be used to test Telnet server implementations for security flaws and robustness problems. Please note, that the subnegotiation portions of the following specifications are implemented as anomalies only.
