Modeling is the crucial first step in formal verification. Some models are constructed by humans from source code, while others are extracted automatically by tools. Regardless of how a model is constructed, verification is only as good as the model; therefore, it is essential to validate the model against the implementation it represents. In this paper we present two complementary approaches to software model validation. The first, data-centric model validation, checks that, for data… CONTINUE READING
