We are the Trustworthy Systems group. We use rigorous formal methods to develop trustworthy software systems—systems that come with provable security, safety and reliability guarantees.
We are fundamentally changing how software systems are engineered in the real world. Our techniques provide the highest possible degree of assurance—the certainty of mathematical proof—while being cost-competitive with traditional low- to medium-assurance systems. Our vision statement is:
Our research brings together a unique combination of expertise in operating systems, formal methods and programming languages. Our seL4 microkernel is the most thoroughly verified operating system kernel in the world.
Breakthroughs that combine our expertise in operating systems, formal methods and programming languages.
2021-10-27 – The Alaska Center for Energy and Power (ACEP) has joined the Laot project team . ACEP will conduct tests and demonstrations in their Fairbanks facility.
2021-10-22 – The seL4 Core Platform (seL4CP) has been proposed in an seL4 RFC . It was co-designed and -implemented with the Laot project and has now been publicly released for feedback and (eventual) TSC endorsement.
2021-09-28 – Following CSIRO's abandoning of TS and the seL4 technology TS developed, the seL4 community and the seL4 Foundation have grown a lot. This has led to concerns that the broader participation might have the potential to undermine the integrity of seL4. In his latest blog, Gernot explains why there is no reason for such conce...
