The ANR VERASCO project
Participants : Sandrine Blazy, Delphine Demange, Vincent Laporte, David Pichardie.
Static program analysis, Certified static analysis
The VERASCO project (2012–2015) is funded by the call ISN 2011, a program of the Agence Nationale de la Recherche. It investigates the formal verification of static analyzers and of compilers, two families of tools that play a crucial role in the development and validation of critical embedded software. It is a joint project with the Inria teams Abstraction , Gallium , The VERIMAG laboratory and the Airbus company.
The ANR AnaStaSec project
Participants : Frédéric Besson, Sandrine Blazy, Thomas Jensen.
Static program analysis, Security, Secure compilation
The AnaStaSec project (2015–2018) aims at ensuring security properties of embedded critical systems using static analysis and security enhancing compiler techniques. The case studies are airborne embedded software with ground communication capabilities. The Celtique project focuses on software fault isolation which is a compiler technology to ensure by construction a strong segregation of tasks.
This is a joint project with the Inria teams Antique and Prosecco , CEA-LIST, TrustInSoft, AMOSSYS and Airbus Group.
The ANR Binsec project
Participants : Frédéric Besson, Sandrine Blazy, Pierre Wilke.
Binary code, Static program analysis
The Binsec project (2013–2017) is founded by the call ISN 2012, a program of the Agence Nationale de la Recherche. The goal of the BINSEC project is to develop static analysis techniques and tools for performing automatic security analyses of binary code. We target two main applicative domains: vulnerability analysis and virus detection.
Binsec is a joint project with the Inria Carte team, CEA LIS , Verimag and EADS IW .
The ANR MALTHY project
Participant : David Cachera.
The MALTHY project, funded by ANR in the program INS 2013, aims at advancing the state-of-the-art in real-time and hybrid model checking by applying advanced methods and tools from linear algebra and algebraic geometry. MALTHY is coordinated by VERIMAG, involving CEA-LIST, Inria Rennes (Estasys and Celtique), Inria Saclay (MAXPLUS) and VISEO/Object Direct.
The ANR AJACS project
Participants : Martin Bodin, Gurvan Cabon, Thomas Jensen, Alan Schmitt.
The project partners include the following Inria teams: Celtique, Indes, Prosecco, and Toccata; it also involves researchers from Imperial College as external collaborators. The project runs from December 2014 to June 2018.
The ANR DISCOVER project
Participants : Sandrine Blazy, Delphine Demange, Thomas Jensen, David Pichardie, Yon Fernandez de Retana.
The DISCOVER project project aims at leveraging recent foundational work on formal verification and proof assistants to design, implement and verify compilation techniques used for high-level concurrent and managed programming languages. The ultimate goal of DISCOVER is to devise new formalisms and proof techniques able to scale to the mechanized correctness proof of a compiler involving a rich class of optimizations, leading to efficient and scalable applications, written in higher-level languages than those currently handled by cutting-edge verified compilers.
In the light of recent work in optimizations techniques used in production compilers of high-level languages, control-flow-graph based intermediate representations seems too rigid. Indeed, the analyses and optimizations in these compilers work on more abstract representations, where programs are represented with data and control dependencies. The most representative representation is the sea-of-nodes form, used in the Java Hotspot Server Compiler, and which is the rationale behind the highly relaxed definition of the Java memory model. DISCOVER proposes to tackle the problem of verified compilation for shared-memory concurrency with a resolute language-based approach, and to investigate the formalization of adequate program intermediate representations and associated correctness proof techniques.
The project runs from October 2014 to September 2018.
Labex COMIN Labs Seccloud project
Participants : Frédéric Besson, Thomas Jensen, Alan Schmitt, Thomas Genet, Martin Bodin, Gurvan Cabon.
This is a joint project with Supelec Rennes and Ecole des Mines de Nantes.
