DOI:10.5445/IR/1000049792

Abstract

This thesis is concerned with practicability of deductive program verification on source code level. As part of a case study for the verification of real-world software, the specification and verification approach to show correctness of the virtualizing kernel PikeOS is presented. Issues within the verification process using current tools and methodologies are discussed and several aspects of these problems are then addressed in detail to improve the verification process and tool usability.
