Application-oriented Formal Verification

The research group on Application-oriented Formal Verification led by Prof. Bernhard Beckert exists since 2009 at the Institute of Theoretical Informatics and the KIT Department of Informatics.

Our main research topic is the practical application of logic and formal methods for the specification and verification of software. In particular, we address the following application areas:

  • verification of functional properties and software dependability
  • verification of relational properties and software evolution
  • verification of information-flow properties and IT security
  • verification of social choice algorithms and voting rules


Software Project Blockchain-based E-Voting

Also this summer term, we offer a project as part of the bachelor course "Software Engineering Practice". On May 4, 2018, the project of summer term 2018 on the topic "Blockchain-based E-Voting" started. Within this project, a team of five bachelor students develops a complete software project according to the state of the art in software engineering. This semester, we use the permissioned Blockchain technology Hyperledger Fabric to realize traceable electronic elections by using a distributed ledger.
