CBMC

CBMC is a Bounded Model Checker for ANSI-C and C++ programs. It also supports SystemC using Scoot. It allows verifying array bounds (buffer overflows), pointer safety, ex­cep­tions and user-specified as­ser­tions. Furthermore, it can check ANSI-C and C++ for consistency with other languages, such as Verilog. The verification is performed by unwinding the loops in the program and passing the re­sul­ting equation to a decision procedure. While CBMC is aimed for embedded software, it also supports dynamic memory allocation using malloc and new. For questions about CBMC, contact Daniel Kroening.
