ISC Forge is an open source DHCP conformance validation framework. It is a joint project done by Internet Systems Consortium, a non profit company based in Redwood City, California and students from Gdansk Univesity of Technology.
The goal of this project is to develop open source validation framework that will be able to validate DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 implementations. Its primary focus is on RFC compliance, but other validation aspects will be covered as well.
In principle the framework can be extended to cover any RFC compliant DHCP software, but we're focusing on Kea. In various times, there was some partial support added also for ISC DHCP and Dibbler. Support for implementations other than Kea is experimental at best.
The framework is written in Python and uses the following libraries:
- Scapy (for packet generation/parsing)
- Pytest (for test management)
- Fabric (for remote server configuration)
