Software Bugs n n n In 1980, NORAD reported that the US was under missile attack. The problem was caused by a faulty circuit, a possibility the reporting software hadn’t taken into account. Therac-25 medical radiation therapy device was involved in several cases where massive overdoses of radiation were administered to patients in 1985 -87, a side effect of the buggy software powering the device. In 1996, a European Ariane 5 rocket was set to deliver a payload of satellites into Earth orbit, but problems with the software caused the launch rocket to veer off its path a mere 37 seconds after launch. 18

Software Bugs n n n In 1994 in Scotland, a Chinook helicopter crashed and killed all 29 passengers. While initially the pilot was blamed for the crash, that decision was later overturned since there was evidence that a systems error had been the actual cause. One of the subcontractors NASA used when building its Mars climate orbiter had used English units instead of the intended metric system, which caused the orbiter’s thrusters to work incorrectly. Due to this bug, the orbiter crashed almost immediately when it arrived at Mars in 1999. The cost of the project was $327 million, not to mention the lost time (it took almost a year for the orbiter to reach Mars). In 2002 NIST estimated that programming errors cost the US economy $60 B annually 19

Hardware Bug n Intel FDIV Bug n n Intel P 5 Pentium floating point unit $500 M Error as high as the fourth significant digit of a decimal number, but the possibilities of this happening are 1 in 360 billion. Approximately 8000 bugs introduced in during design of Pentium 4. 20

Verification and Validation n Verification and Validation is the process of checking that a SW/HW system meets specifications and fulfills its intended purpose 21

Empirical Testing n Traditionally, errors in hardware and software have been detected empirically by testing n Number of possibilities too large so only a small subset can be tested n E. G. Testing arithmetic operations on all 264 double precision floating point numbers is infeasible 22

Formal Methods n In the context of hardware and software systems, formal verification is the act of proving or disproving the correctness of intended algorithms underlying a system with respect to a certain formal specification or property, using formal methods of mathematics 23

Model Checking n n model checking refers to the following problem: Given a model of a system, test automatically whether this model meets a given specification. Typically, the systems one has in mind are hardware or software systems, and the specification contains safety requirements such as the absence of deadlocks and similar critical states that can cause the system to crash. Model checking is a technique for automatically verifying correctness properties of finitestate systems. An important class of model checking methods have been developed for checking models of hardware and software designs where the specification is given by a temporal logic formula. Pioneering work in the model checking of temporal logic formulae was done by E. M. Clarke and E. A. Emerson[1][2][3] and by J. P. Queille and J. Sifakis. 26

Automated Theorem Proving n n n Formal proof by hand is difficult Have proof checked or generated automatically by a computer Higher Order Logic, or HOL, is a widelyused tool for creating formal specifications of systems, and for proving properties about them. It has been used in both industry and academia to support formal reasoning in many areas, including hardware and software verification. It can be used to support any project which can be defined in higher order logic, an expressive logic originally developed as a foundation for mathematics. 27

Proof Carrying Code n Proof-carrying code (PCC) is a software mechanism that allows a host system to verify properties about an application via a formal proof that accompanies the application's executable code. The host system can quickly verify the validity of the proof, and it can compare the conclusions of the proof to its own security policy to determine whether the application is safe to execute. This can be particularly useful in ensuring memory safety, i. e. preventing buffer overflows and other vulnerabilities common in some programming languages. n Proof-carrying code was originally described in 1996 by George Necula and Peter Lee. 28

Static Analysis n Static program analysis (also static code analysis or SCA) is the analysis of computer software that is performed without actually executing programs built from that software. The term is usually applied to the analysis performed by an automated tool. n A growing commercial use of static analysis is in the verification of properties of software used in safety-critical computer systems and locating potentially vulnerable code[3]. For example the following industries have identified the use of static code analysis as a means of improving the quality of increasingly sophisticated and complex software: Medical software, Nuclear software. 29

Program Generation n program derivation is the derivation of a program from its specification, by mathematical means. n To derive a program means to write a formal specification, which is usually non-executable, and then apply mathematically correct rules in order to obtain an executable program satisfying that specification. The program thus obtained is then correct by construction. Program and correctness proof are constructed together. n Hoare logic, stepwise refinement, Bird-Meertens Formalism, parallel program design, FLAME, SPIRAL 30
