Induction in Compositional Model Checking [chapter]

Kenneth L. McMillan, Shaz Qadeer, James B. Saxe
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
It differs from previous techniques that combine induction and model checking in that the proof is fully mechanically checked and temporal variables (process identifiers, for example) may be natural numbers  ...  This paper describes a technique of inductive proof based on model checking.  ...  Here, we extend induction via model checking beyond finite state invariants, to problems that have not generally been considered amenable to solution by model checking.  ...

Compositional reasoning for port-based distributed systems

Alma L. Juarez Dominguez, Nancy A. Day
2005 Proceedings of the 20th IEEE/ACM international Conference on Automated software engineering - ASE '05  
We present a compositional reasoning method using model checking and theorem proving to verify liveness properties of a communication protocol for chains of connections consisting of an unknown number  ...  We outline how our method is used to verify properties of the call protocol of AT&T's Distributed Feature Composition (DFC) architecture.  ...  These individual properties are verified by model checking each component, and the properties are combined using induction in a theorem prover.  ...

The Kind 2 Model Checker [chapter]

Adrien Champion, Alain Mebsout, Christoph Sticksel, Cesare Tinelli
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Both checkers have several model checking engines, based on various techniques, which run concurrently and in cooperation, with the goal of proving or disproving properties and contracts.  ...  Through the use of observers [12] , any (LTL) regular safety property can be expressed in Lustre as an invariant property, hence KIND 2 focuses on checking just invariant properties.  ...  induction-based model checking engines: kinduction [16] , IC3 [3] and various auxiliary invariant generation methods.  ...

Lazy Self-composition for Security Verification [chapter]

Weikun Yang, Yakir Vizel, Pramod Subramanyan, Aarti Gupta, Sharad Malik
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The secure information flow problem, which checks whether low-security outputs of a program are influenced by high-security inputs, has many applications in verifying security properties in programs.  ...  In this paper we present lazy self-composition, an approach for verifying secure information flow.  ...  We presented two instances of lazy self-composition: the first uses taint analysis and self-composition in a CEGAR loop; the second uses bounded model checking to dynamically query taint checks and self-composition  ...

Verifying an infinite family of inductions simultaneously using data independence and FDR [chapter]

S. J. Creese, A. W. Roscoe
1999 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
The technique combines the use of the process algebra CSP to model systems and their specifications, and the FDR tool to help reason about them.  ...  We give examples of the techniques implementation on a simple distributed system and a communications protocol involving the multiplexing of channels. 1. 0 The work in this paper was supported by DERA  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We would like thank Ranko Lazic for his work on data independence, and Gavin Lowe whose independent and different work (as yet unpublished) on the integration of data independence and induction  ...

Extracting Proofs from Tabled Proof Search [chapter]

Dale Miller, Alwen Tiu
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We consider the problem of model checking specifications involving co-inductive definitions such as are available for bisimulation.  ...  In the case of co-inductive proof search, tables allow a limited form of loop checking, which is often necessary for, say, checking bisimulation of non-terminating processes.  ...  Model checking as proof search In this paper, we address the problem of integrating (co-)inductively proved theorems with model checking and we will use bisimulation as a specific and important example  ...

Model checking for the practical verificationist

Lee Pike
2007 Proceedings of the second workshop on Automated formal methods - AFM '07  
In particular, I discuss the use of higher-order functions in model checking, infinitestate bounded model checking, compositional specification and verification, and finally, mechanical theorem prover  ...  SAL contains novel and powerful features, many of which are not available in other model checkers.  ...  For shorthand, I refer to infinitestate bounded model checking via k-induction as inf-bmc in the remainder of this paper.  ...

Property Directed Self Composition [chapter]

Ron Shemer, Arie Gurfinkel, Sharon Shoham, Yakir Vizel
2019 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this approach, the problem of checking k-safety over the original program is reduced to checking an "ordinary" safety property over a program that executes k copies of the original program in some order  ...  the inductive invariant needed to verify safety of the composed program, where both are restricted to a given language.  ...  Our work infers the composition explicitly and can use off-the-shelf model checking tools.  ...

Acknowledgements We thank the anonymous reviewers for their helpful comments that have resulted in significant improvements of the paper.  ...  To cope with this problem we combine an induction-based technique for invariant generation and conventional model checking of finite state systems.  ...  In order to verify parameterized RSVP model according to the technique described in Section 4 we break the checking procedure into two stages.  ...

Circular Compositional Reasoning about Liveness [chapter]

K. L. McMillan
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An implementation is proved live for arbitrary resources using compositional model checking.  ...  This paper presents a method of circular compositional reasoning that applies to liveness properties as well. It is based on a new circular compositional rule implemented in the SMV proof assistant.  ...  However, we can use an appropriate circular compositional rule, combined with model checking, to prove such mutually dependent liveness properties by induction over time.  ...
