Publication Detail
Temporal property verification as a program analysis task : Extended Version
Abstract
We describe a reduction from temporal property verification to a program analysis problem. First we present a proof system that, unlike the standard formulation, is more amenable to reasoning about infinite-state systems: disjunction is treated by partitioning, rather than enumerating, the state space and temporal operators are characterized with special sets of states called frontiers. We then describe a transformation that, with the use of procedures and nondeterminism, enables off-the-shelf program analysis tools to naturally perform the reasoning necessary for proving temporal properties (e.g. backtracking, eventuality checking, tree counterexamples for branching-time properties, abstraction refinement, etc.). Using examples drawn from the PostgreSQL database server, Apache web server, and Windows OS kernel, we demonstrate the practical viability of our work. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
