Stefan Berghofer. Verification of Dependable Software using SPARK and Isabelle. In 6th International Workshop on Systems Software Verification. Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs), Volume 24, pp. 15-31, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2012)


We present a link between the interactive proof assistant Isabelle/HOL and the SPARK/Ada tool suite for the verification of high-integrity software. Using this link, we can tackle verification problems that are beyond reach of the proof tools currently available for Spark. To demonstrate that our methodology is suitable for real-world applications, we show how it can be used to verify an efficient library for big numbers. This library is then used as a basis for an implementation of the RSA public-key encryption algorithm in SPARK/Ada.
