This paper is a progress report on an experimental system, the state delta verification system (SDVS), for verifying microcode correctness. The goal of this project is to solve some of the problems, both theoretical and engineering, obstructing the realization of a usable and applicable program for checking proofs of microcode correctness. The ideal result… (More)
We give an introduction to questions relating to the logical underpinnings of an adaptive security infrastructure .
At ISI, we are halfway into a two year research program in microcode verification. We are focussing our attention on microcode that implements a target instruction set. The Fault-Tolerant Spaceborne Computer is a typical microcoded machine and we are using an early version of it as the prime example for the present work. example for the present work. The… (More)
