Section: Overall Objectives
The overall goal of the Celtique project is to improve the security and reliability of software with semantic certification that attests to its well-behavedness. The semantic analyses extract approximate but sound descriptions of software behaviour from which a proof of security can be constructed. The analyses of relevance include numerical data flow analysis, control flow analysis for higher-order languages, alias and points-to analysis for heap structure manipulation, and various kinds of information flow analysis.
We target three application domains: Java software for small devices (in particular smart cards and mobile telephones), embedded C programs, and web applications.
Celtique is a joint project with the CNRS, the University of Rennes 1 and ENS Rennes.
