CVPP: A Tool Set for Compositional Verification of Control - Flow Safety Properties

This paper describes CVPP, a tool set for compositional verification of control - flow safety properties for programs with procedures. The compositional verification principle that underlies CVPP is based on maximal models constructed from component specifications. Maximal models replace the actual components when verifying the whole program, either for the purposes of modularity of verification or due to unavailability of the component implementations at verification time. A characteristic feature of the principle and the tool set is the distinction between program structure and behaviour. While behavioural properties are more abstract and convenient for specification purposes, structural ones are easier to manipulate, in particular when it comes to verification or the construction of maximal models.
