Astraver Toolset 1.1 comes with the following improvements:
C language support
- Initial support for pointer arithmetic involving nested structures e.g. `container_of' macro from the Linux kernel.
In particular, the new implementation allows to prove the validity of the pointer to the outer structure obtained by subtracting the offset of the inner structure from the pointer to that structure.
New approach to support modulo arithmetic operations on values of integral C types in ACSL
6th Linux Driver Verification Workshop was held in Passau, Germany on September 22-23 colocated with 1st International Workshop on CPAchecker.
Pavel Andrianov has finished Google Summer of Code 2016 project "Analysis of race condition warnings in the Linux kernel" for The Linux Foundation.
Race conditions are a kind of bugs that are hard to detect — they may manifest itself only on rare schedules, and they are hard to fix — they often require rethinking and careful selection of synchronization mechanism.
BLAST 2.7.3 was presented at the 5th International Competition on Software Verification (SV-COMP) held at TACAS 2016 in Eindhoven, Netherlands. This year BLAST has won the bronze medal in the DeviceDriversLinux64 category.
The 200 bugs found by the Linux Driver Verification project have been fixed in the Linux kernel. 151 patches developed by members of the LDV team have found their way to the mainline kernel.
October 22, Thursday, at 18.00, the panel section "ISPRAS Linux Verfication Center: First Ten Years" will take place at Digital October Center as a part of Central and Eastern European Software Engineering Conference.
5th Linux Driver Verification Workshop dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the Linux Verification Center of ISPRAS was held in Moscow, Russia on September 15-18. The workshop was arranged by prof. Alexander Petrenko (Linux Verification Center, ISPRAS, Moscow, Russia) and prof. Dirk Beyer (University of Passau, Germany).
LDV Tools 0.8 comes with the following improvements:
- Update the CPAchecker verification tool to the new version 1.4 (r14998).
- LDV Tools are now available as Docker images, so you can avoid installation of all dependencies on your machine.
- Improvements in 13 existing rule specifications:
BLAST 2.7.3 was presented at the 4rd International Competition on Software Verification (SV-COMP) held at TACAS 2015 in London, United Kingdom. This year BLAST has won the gold medal in the DeviceDrivers64 category.
We are happy to announce the first public release of Astraver Toolset 1.0 that is built on top of the 'Frama-C + Jessie + Why3 IDE' deductive verification toolchain. The toolchain was adapted, so it can be used to specify and prove properties of Linux kernel code. The most of our modifications go to the Jessie plugin, while the Frama-C front-end and the Why3 platform have got just minor fixes or improvements.
