Various research prototypes and a well-founded theory of model based testing (MBT) suggests the application of MBT to real-world problems. In this article we report on applying the well-known TGV tool for protocol conformance testing of a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) server. Particularly, we discuss the performed abstractions along with corresponding rationales. Furthermore, we show how to use structural and fault-based techniques for test purpose design. We present first empirical results obtained from applying our test cases to a commercial implementation and to a popular open source implementation of a SIP Registrar. Notably, in both implementations our input output labeled transition system model proved successful in revealing severe violations of the protocol.
