This document contains machine readable test vectors for several
Preparation, Enforcement, and Comparison of Internationalized Strings
(PRECIS) [RFC8264] profiles.¶
Two sets of vectors exist for profiles of the base classes.
The first set tests the enforcement step.
It takes the form of a table that contains an input string, an output
string and an optional error.
If the error column has a value of "ctx" it indicates that the context
rule was violated, "empty" means that an empty string was disallowed,
"rune" means that a disallowed code point (rune) was encountered, and
"bidi" indicates that the BIDI Rule was violated.
The second set tests the PRECIS comparison step.
It takes the form of a table that contains two strings, a boolean that
is TRUE if the two strings should be considered equal and FALSE
otherwise, and an optional comment.¶
The test vectors in this document have been verified by three
An implementation that concurs with the results provided in this
document should be interoperable with other implementations.¶
Input and output strings are expressed as UTF-8 and hexidecimal encoded
This document is intended to provide test vectors for the PRECIS framework
and its profiles.
No assertion of the security of the PRECIS framework or its profiles for
any particular use is intended.
The reader is referred to [RFC8264] for a
discussion of the general security of the PRECIS framework.¶

and code reviews on the Go programming language implementation of PRECIS
for which these tests were designed and for contributing many of the tests
