Code Formal Verification of Operation System

By Yu Zhang Yunwei Dong Huo Hong Fan Zhang

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Dec. 2010

With the increasing pressure on non-function attributes (security, safety and reliability) requirements of an operation system, high–confidence operation system is becoming more important. Formal verification is the only known way to guarantee that a system is free of programming errors. We research on formal verification of operation system kernel in system code level and take theorem proving and model checking as the main technical methods to resolve the key techniques of verifying operation system kernel in C code level. We present a case study to the verification of real-world C systems code derived from an implementation of μC/OS – II in the end.
