2 I NTRODUCTION Most complicated systems routinely built today – difficult to get right Failures are costly Verification techniques needed 2 Model Checking

3 I NTRODUCTION Formal Verification Apply mathematical arguments to prove the correctness of the system Aims to find bugs in the system and aim to correct 3 Model Checking

4 F ORMAL V ERIFICATION Build a mathematical model of system Write correctness requirements Analysis – Check that model satisfies specifications Verification – Analysis either proves or disproves the correctness claim 4 Model Checking

5 M ODEL C HECKING Model Checking Technique for automated correctness verification of safety critical reactive systems. More generally Algorithmic analysis to check that a model satisfies a specified property Checks automatically whether a given formula holds in a given model 5 Model Checking

6 A PPLICATIONS Electrical Circuits Communication protocols Digital Controller Program Analysis – e.g. Java Path Finder 6 Model Checking

7 M OTIVATION Software/Hardware system – Specification Language Requirements – Temporal Logic State Space generated from the specification Algorithm returns yes, if the property holds for model returns no + counterexample, otherwise 7 Model Checking

10 M ODELING Convert the system into a formalism – finite automata Limitation on Time and Space – Use abstraction Model a System using Kripke Structure - State Transition Graph 10 Model Checking

11 K RIPKE S TRUCTURE Structure over a set of atomic propositions M = (S, S0, R, L) S = Finite Set of States S0  S is the Set of Initial States R : S X S is a Transition Relation L : S  2 AP – Function labels each state with set of atomic propositions true in that state 11 Model Checking
