Development of Security Software: A High-Assurance Methodology

This paper reports on a project to exercise, evaluate and enhance a methodology for developing high assurance software for an embedded system controller. In this approach, researchers at the National Security Agency capture system requirements precisely and unambiguously through functional specifications in Z. Rockwell Collins then implements these requirements using an integrated, model-based software development approach. The development effort is supported by a tool chain that provides automated code generation and support for formal verification.
