Invited talk at LCCC Workshop on Formal Verification of Embedded Control Systems


This talk presents an overview of the Trustworthy Systems project at NICTA, which aims to construct real-world systems with proven safety or security properties. Starting with the seL4 microkernel, for which we have established a complete proof chain from general safety and security properties (confidentiality and integrity) to binary code, we are developing a framework for building complete systems and proving their security. One case study is an autonomous aerial vehicle, which is developed under the DARPA HACMS program by a consortium consisting of NICTA, Rockwell Collins, Galois and Boeing.
