This document is intended to describe the validation platform that will be used in CLARUS in order to validate the performance, security and scalability of the CLARUS proxy The deliverable presents the strategy and methodology that will be followed during the validation phase of the project and how this validation will be integrated as part of the integration process.

The strategy that was chosen is based on the “Requirement-based testing” approach and will allow evaluating CLARUS results and how they satisfy the initial expectations. Based on this paradigm, this document relies on the set of scenario and requirements (extracted from D2.3) and sort them by using the IADT methodology (Inspection, analysis, demonstration, testing). For each requirement specified as T (test) a list of metrics is defined and a testing scenario applied.
