Rapid Certifiable Trust (video)

Watch SEI principal investigator Dr. Dionisio de Niz discuss research on verification techniques to reduce the deployment time of cyber-physical systems such as unmanned vehicles and aircraft, by reducing the overall development and assurance times.

Software Engineering Institute



We are developing compositional verification techniques to allow us to use multiple enforced components minimizing and automatically removing conflicting enforcer assumptions (e.g., reducing a plane's airspeed to avoid crashing while increasing airspeed to prevent stalling). These techniques will allow us to assure full-scale systems, even if most of their functionality is implemented by unverified components. Our objective is to develop enforcement verification techniques that scale to at least 10 enforced controllers.
