Formal Verification of a Memory Allocation Module of Contiki with Frama-C: A Case Study [chapter]

Frédéric Mangano, Simon Duquennoy, Nikolai Kosmatov
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present the target module, describe how the code has been specified and proven using Frama-C, a software analysis platform for C code, and discuss lessons learned.  ...  We present a successful case study on deductive verification of a memory allocation module of Contiki, a popular opensource operating system for IoT.  ...  The second author has also been partially supported by a grant from CPER Nord-Pas-de-Calais/FEDER DATA and the distributed environment Ecare@Home funded by the Swedish Knowledge Foundation 2015-2019.  ...

Formal Verification of Numerical Programs: From C Annotated Programs to Mechanical Proofs

Sylvie Boldo, Claude Marché
2011 Mathematics in Computer Science  
To achieve this high level of confidence on C programs, we use a chain of tools: Frama-C, its Jessie plugin, Why and provers among Coq, Gappa, Alt-Ergo, CVC3 and Z3.  ...  Numerical programs may require a high level of guarantee. This can be achieved by applying formal methods, such as machine-checked proofs.  ...  An early work on floating-point support in JML for Java is presented in 2006 by Leavens [29] , where mostly runtime assertion checking is considered.  ...

Climbing the Software Assurance Ladder - Practical Formal Verification for Reliable Software

Yannick Moy
2019 Electronic Communications of the EASST  
At one extreme, software with one unknown bug is not reliable. At the other extreme, perfect software is fully reliable.  ...  Experience of both long-term and new users helped us define adoption and usage guidelines for SPARK based on five levels of increasing assurance that map well with industrial needs in practice.  ...  We would like to thank the anonymous referees for their useful remarks, as well as our colleagues at AdaCore, Altran and Thales for their reviews on earlier drafts of this article.

Challenges in High-Assurance Runtime Verification [chapter]

Alwyn Goodloe
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Runtime Verification (RV) has the potential to provide protections when a system cannot be assured by conventional means, but only if the RV itself can be trusted.  ...  In this paper, we proffer a number of challenges to realizing high-assurance RV and illustrate how we have addressed them in our research.  ...  Acknowledgements: The Copilot project has been conducted in collaboration with Dr. Lee Pike (Galois).  ...

Designing a verifying compiler: Lessons learned from developing Whiley

David J. Pearce, Lindsay Groves
2015 Science of Computer Programming  
Several impressive systems have been developed to this end, such as ESC/Java and Spec#, which build on existing programming languages (e.g., Java, C#).  ...  An ongoing challenge for computer science is the development of a tool which automatically verifies programs meet their specifications, and are free from runtime errors such as divide-by-zero, array out-of-bounds  ...  Frama-C Frama-C provides a set of sound software analyses for the industrial analysis of ISO C99 source code [91] .  ...

2017 arXiv   pre-print
We close with the proposal for a two-day workshop in which the problems identified in this report can be more broadly discussed, and specific plans to launch these new research thrusts identified.  ...  In this study, we detail one of the most significant productivity challenges in achieving this goal, namely the increasing proclivity to bugs, especially in the face of growing hardware and software heterogeneity  ...  In C, for example, assert statements are checked at runtime and a diagnostic message is printed if one fails.  ...

Code‐level model checking in the software development workflow at Amazon Web Services

Nathan Chong, Byron Cook, Jonathan Eidelman, Konstantinos Kallas, Kareem Khazem, Felipe R. Monteiro, Daniel Schwartz‐Narbonne, Serdar Tasiran, Michael Tautschnig, Mark R. Tuttle
2021 Software, Practice & Experience  
This article describes a style of applying symbolic model checking developed over the course of four years at Amazon Web Services (AWS).  ...  Using our methodology, we find that we can prove the correctness of industrial low-level C-based systems with reasonable effort and predictability.  ...  As we discuss in Section 4.1, CBMC harnesses and annotations are both written in C, which makes them easier for developers to write, and allows them to be checked as runtime assertions.  ...

2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A key aspect of this proof infrastructure is continuous checking, to ensure that properties remain proved during the lifetime of the software.  ...  At each change to the code, proofs are automatically re-established with little to no interaction from the developers.  ...  Static analysis for hand-written cryptographic implementations has been previously reported in the context of Frama-C/PolarSSL [23], focusing on scaling memory safety verification to a large body of code  ...
