Course objectives
The student will understand the necessary theoretic background as well as acquire hands-on experience with relevant tools for bug finding and formal verification techniques. With the help of a tutor students will get acquainted with a number of concrete software verification tools for analysis of concurrent systems, real-time systems, hybrid systems, cryptographic systems and systems with probabilities.
Learning outcomes
Students will:
be aware of fundaments of black-box testing;
understand priciples of deductive verification;
understand the theory and application of model checking;
have hand-on experince with a couple of verification tools.
Syllabus
  • This course will provide the necessary theoretic background as well as hands-on experience with relevant tools for bug finding and formal verification techniques. An introductory insight into security standards like Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation and FIPS 140 shall be provided first, together with a discussion of security threat models. Following this, the core topics of this course will include testing, simulations, advance testing and symbolic execution, abstract interpretation, static analysis, theorem proving, automated formal verification as well as an introduction to model-based verification. With the help of a tutor students will get acquainted with a number of concrete software verification tools for analysis of concurrent systems, real-time systems, hybrid systems, cryptographic systems and systems with probabilities.
