Verification of Asynchronous Systems with an Unspecified Component [article]

Rosa Abbasi, Fatemeh Ghassemi, Ramtin Khosravi
2017 arXiv   pre-print
To this aim, we study the problem of model checking component-based asynchronously communicating systems in the presence of an unspecified component against safety properties.  ...  To make the approach efficient and convergent, we produce an overapproximated interface of the missing component and by its composition with the rest of the system components, we achieve an overapproximated  ...  Fig. 1 : 1 An asynchronous system with an unspecified component M 1 Introduction Fig. 2 : 2 The proposed steps towards assumption generation in the asynchronous setting Model ::= Actor + main {Send  ...

Error-avoiding adaptors for black-box software components

Casandra Holotescu
2010 Proceedings of the IEEE/ACM international conference on Automated software engineering - ASE '10  
A lot of work has been done in the area of building componentbased systems with correct-by-construction adaptors. This is accomplished by using preexisting specifications of the component behaviour.  ...  But what happens when known components get to interact with incompletely specified, blackbox components, and errors occur? How can we avoid these errors without modifying existing/legacy components?  ...  For simplification, consider a component with available behavioural specification, which interacts with another, blackbox component, whose behaviour is partially unspecified.  ...

Compatibility Checking for Asynchronously Communicating Software [chapter]

Meriem Ouederni, Gwen Salaün, Tevfik Bultan
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
However, checking compatibility for systems communicating asynchronously is an undecidable problem, and asynchronous communication is a common interaction mechanism used in building software systems.  ...  Instead, we present a sufficient condition for checking compatibility of a set of asynchronously communicating components.  ...  In this paper, we focus on the compatibility checking problem for closed systems involving composition of distributed components. We call the components that participate in a composed system peers.  ...

Model-Checking Real-Time Properties of an Auto Flight Control System Function

Pierre-Alain Bourdil, Bernard Berthomieu, Eric Jenn
2014 2014 IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering Workshops  
We relate an experiment in modeling and verification of an avionic function.  ...  The problem addressed is the correctness of a temporal condition enabling the detection of a range of faults in the implementation of the function.  ...  A distinctive feature of the system is that it is conceptually asynchronous; events may occur at unspecified times.  ...

Florence Maraninchi, Matthieu Moy, Jerome Cornet, Laurent Maillet-Contoz, Claude Helmstetter, Claus Traulsen
2008 2008 Joint 6th International IEEE Northeast Workshop on Circuits and Systems and TAISA Conference  
SystemC has become a de facto standard for the system-level description of systems-on-a-chip. SystemC/TLM is a library dedicated to transaction level modeling.  ...  Applying formal validation techniques to SystemC descriptions of SoCs requires that the semantics of the language be formalized.  ...  properties of a system from local properties of its components.  ...

A Component-Based Approach to Automated Web Service Composition

Quoc Vo, Lin Padgham
2006 2006 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI 2006 Main Conference Proceedings)(WI'06)  
We present a conversation specification language for defining interaction protocols and investigate the issue of synchronous and asynchronous communication between the composite service and the component  ...  This paper presents a mechanism for specifying the external interface to composite and component services, and then deriving an appropriate internal model to realise a functioning composition.  ...  Two desirable properties of a realisation of a composition system C are freedom of deadlock and freedom of unspecified receptions. 1 Intuitively, a composition system C with a realisation M has no unspecified  ...

On Synchronous and Asynchronous Compatibility of Communicating Components [chapter]

Rolf Hennicker, Michel Bidoit, Thanh-Son Dang
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We are very grateful to Alexander Knapp for his suggestion to use output queues (instead of input queues) for the formalization of asynchronous compatibility.  ...  A prominent example of multi-component systems with asynchronous communication via unbounded FIFO-buffers are CFSMs [6] , for which many problems, like unspecified reception, are undecidable.  ...  Therefore we can use the MIO Workbench [4] , an Eclipsebased verification tool for modal I/O-transition systems, to verify asynchronous compatibility.  ...

Formally-Based Design Evaluation [chapter]

Kenneth J. Turner, Ji He
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Tools have been developed for automated test generation and verification of conformance between an implementation and its specification.  ...  This paper investigates specification, verification and test generation for synchronous and asynchronous circuits. The approach is called DILL (Digital Logic in LOTOS).  ...  LOTOS verification approaches tend to be state-based using an LTS (Labelled Transition System).  ...

Using the PALS Architecture to Verify a Distributed Topology Control Protocol for Wireless Multi-Hop Networks in the Presence of Node Failures

Michael Katelman, José Meseguer
2010 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
The PALS architecture reduces distributed, real-time asynchronous system design to the design of a synchronous system under reasonable requirements.  ...  We use Maude's meta-level to automatically generate a synchronous composition from user-provided component machines and a description of how the machines communicate with each other.  ...  A certain kind of bisimulation between the two systems (see [7, 6] ) allows one to reduce (a) verification of a property against the asynchronous machine to (b) verification of the property against the  ...
