Benchmarking finite-state verifiers
- 28 Downloads
A variety of largely automated methods have been proposed for finite-state verification of computer systems. Although anecdotal accounts of success are widely reported, there is very little empirical data on the relative strengths and weaknesses of those methods across a broad range of analysis questions and systems. This information, however, is critical for the transfer of the technology from research to practice. We review some of the problems involved in obtaining this information and suggest several ways in which the community can facilitate empirical evaluation of finite-state verification tools.
