These slides were presented by Rod Chapman during a webinar on SPARK GPL - the high assurance toolset dedicated to the academic and Free Software communities. SPARK GPL combines the proven SPARK Ada language and supporting toolset with AdaCore’s GNAT Programming Studio (GPS) integrated development environment. SPARK is a language specifically designed to support the development of software used in applications where correct operation is vital either for reasons of safety or security. The SPARK Toolset offers static verification that is unrivalled in terms of its soundness, low false-alarm rate, depth and efficiency. The toolset also generates evidence for correctness that can be used to build a constructive assurance case in line with the requirements of industry regulators and certification schemes.
The slides present the concepts behind the Correctness-by-Construction methodology and look at current and potential research topics for the academic community.
