- Performance Profiling
Refers to a performance test that measures and evaluates response times and transaction rates.
- Reliability Testing
Refers to the verification that failover methods are invoked properly and the system recovers properly.
- Security and Access Control Testing
Focuses on the technical, administrative and physical security controls that have been designed into the system architecture in order to provide confidentiality, integrity and availability.
