7.3.9.1 PDCP SDU transmission/ V2X Sidelink Communication/ No Confidentiality Protection for both Non-IP type and IP type

7.3.9.1.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE served by E-UTRAN PLMN supporting V2X sidelink communication }

ensure that {

when { the UE sends an non-IP type PDCP Data PDU for SLRB }

then { there is not header compression and no confidentiality protection for non-IP type PDCP Data PDU }

}

(2)

with { UE served by E-UTRAN PLMN supporting V2X sidelink communication }

ensure that {

when { the UE sends an IP type PDCP Data PDU for SLRB }

then { there is no confidentiality protection for IP type PDCP Data PDU }

}

7.3.9.1.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.323 subclause 6.3.14.

[TS 36.323, clause 4.4.1.1.1]

SDU Type

Length: 3 bits

PDCP SDU type, i.e. Layer-3 Protocol Data Unit type as specified in [14]. PDCP entity may handle the SDU differently per SDU Type, e.g. header compression is applicable to IP SDU but not ARP SDU and Non-IP SDU.
