Predator Hunting Party (Competition Contribution)

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9035)


This paper introduces PredatorHP (Predator Hunting Party), a program verifier built on top of the Predator shape analyser, and discusses its participation in the SV-COMP’15 software verification competition. Predator is a sound shape analyser dealing with C programs with lists implemented via low-level pointer operations. PredatorHP uses Predator to prove programs safe while at the same time using several bounded versions of Predator for bug hunting.
