Security Software Testing Suite (SSTS) is a set of tools used for testing personal firewalls and Internet security suites for Windows.
SSTS is based on the idea of leak-tests, small independent programs that attempt to bypass an outbound protection of the security software. SSTS also consists of many independent programs that test specific features.
SSTS is used in our Firewall Challenge project, which goal is to rate and compare abilities of personal firewalls and similar software. This project replaced older Windows Personal Analysis project and its subproject – leak-testing. The advantages of using SSTS instead of the original leak-tests are obvious.
SSTS is published with its source code, which makes the testing as transparent as possible. Unlike leak-tests, this suite tests many other features of the security software and not just the outbound protection. The tests in SSTS have a unified structure and user interface, hence using it is faster, easier and more efficient.

More information about each test can be found in its source code file and in the shared source code files of the whole suite.
