Model Checking Large Network Protocol Implementations

  title={Model Checking Large Network Protocol Implementations},
  author={Madan Musuvathi and Dawson R. Engler},
Network protocols must work. The effects of protocol specification or implementation errors range from reduced performance, to security breaches, to bringing down entire networks. However, network protocols are difficult to test due to the exponential size of the state space they define. Ideally, a protocol implementation must be validated against all possible events (packet arrivals, packet losses, timeouts, etc.) in all possible protocol states. Conventional means of testing can explore only… CONTINUE READING
