Abstract : We propose in the paper a test property specification language, dedicated to UML/OCL models. This language is intended to express temporal properties on the executions of the system, that one wants to test. It is based on patterns, specifying the behaviours one wants to exhibit/avoid, and scopes, defining the piece of execution trace on which a given pattern applies. Each property is a combination of a scope and a pattern, providing a means for a validation engineer to easily express temporal properties on a system, without using complex formal notations. Properties have the semantics of an event-based transition system whose coverage can be measured so as to evaluate the relevance of a given test suite. These principles aim at being used in the context of a research project, in which the security properties are expressed on an industrial case study of a smart card operating system. This approach makes it possible to assist the Common Criteria evaluation of the testing phase, that requires evidences of the extensiveness of the testing phase of a security product.
