Variability Abstractions: Trading Precision for Speed in Family-Based Analyses

Authors: Aleksandar S. Dimovski, Claus Brabrand, and Andrzej Wasowski

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 37, 29th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2015)


Abstract
Family-based (lifted) data-flow analysis for Software Product Lines (SPLs) is capable of analyzing all valid products (variants) without generating any of them explicitly. It takes as input only the common code base, which encodes all variants of a SPL, and produces analysis results corresponding to all variants. However, the computational cost of the lifted analysis still depends inherently on the number of variants (which is exponential in the number of features, in the worst case). For a large number of features, the lifted analysis may be too costly or even infeasible. In this paper, we introduce variability abstractions defined as Galois connections and use abstract interpretation as a formal method for the calculational-based derivation of approximate (abstracted) lifted analyses of SPL programs, which are sound by construction. Moreover, given an abstraction we define a syntactic transformation that translates any SPL program into an abstracted version of it, such that the analysis of the abstracted SPL coincides with the corresponding abstracted analysis of the original SPL. We implement the transformation in a tool, that works on Object-Oriented Java program families, and evaluate the practicality of this approach on three Java SPL benchmarks.

Information Leakage of Non-Terminating Processes

Authors: Fabrizio Biondi, Axel Legay, Bo Friis Nielsen, Pasquale Malacaria, and Andrzej Wasowski

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 29, 34th International Conference on Foundation of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science (FSTTCS 2014)


Abstract
In recent years, quantitative security techniques have been providing effective measures of the security of a system against an attacker. Such techniques usually assume that the system produces a finite amount of observations based on a finite amount of secret bits and terminates, and the attack is based on these observations. By modeling systems with Markov chains, we are able to measure the effectiveness of attacks on non-terminating systems. Such systems do not necessarily produce a finite amount of output and are not necessarily based on a finite amount of secret bits. We provide characterizations and algorithms to define meaningful measures of security for non-terminating systems, and to compute them when possible. We also study the bounded versions of the problems, and show examples of non-terminating programs and how their effectiveness in protecting their secret can be measured.

Analysis, Test and Verification in The Presence of Variability (Dagstuhl Seminar 13091)

Authors: Paulo Borba, Myra B. Cohen, Axel Legay, and Andrzej Wasowski

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 3, Issue 2 (2013)


Abstract
This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 13091 "Analysis, Test and Verification in The Presence of Variability". The seminar had the goal of consolidating and stimulating research on analysis of software models with variability, enabling the design of variability-aware tool chains. We brought together 46 key researchers from three continents, working on quality assurance challenges that arise from introducing variability, and some who do not work with variability, but that are experts in their respective areas in the broader domain of software analysis or testing research. As a result of interactions triggered by sessions of different formats, the participants were able to classify their approaches with respect to a number of dimensions that helped to identify similarities and differences that have already been useful to improve understanding and foster new collaborations among the participants.
