Formal Verification of a Memory Allocation Module of Contiki with Frama-C: a Case Study

Abstract : Formal verification is still rarely applied to the IoT (InternetofThings) software, whereas IoT applications tend to become increasingly popular and critical. This short paper promotes the usage of formal verification to ensure safety and security of software in this domain. We present a successful case study on deductive verification of a memory allocation module of Contiki, a popular open- source operating system for IoT. We present the target module, describe how the code has been specified and proven using Frama-C, a software analysis platform for C code, and discuss lessons learned.
