Run-time conformance checking of mobile and distributed systems using executable models
This paper describes an approach for conformance testing of mobile and distributed systems. The approach is based on kiltera — a novel, high-level language supporting the descri...

A formal analysis of requirements-based testing
The aim of requirements-based testing is to generate test cases from a set of requirements for a given system or piece of software. In this paper we propose a formal semantics for...

A comparative study of programmer-written and automatically inferred contracts
Where do contracts — specification elements embedded in executable code — come from? To produce them, should we rely on the programmers, on automatic tools, or some combinati...

Precise pointer reasoning for dynamic test generation
Dynamic test generation consists of executing a program while gathering symbolic constraints on inputs from predicates encountered in branch statements, and of using a constraint ...

Automatic system testing of programs without test oracles
Metamorphic testing has been shown to be a simple yet effective technique in addressing the quality assurance of applications that do not have test oracles, i.e., for which it is ...

Exception analysis and points-to analysis: better together
Exception analysis and points-to analysis are typically done in complete separation. Past algorithms for precise exception analysis (e.g., pairing throw clauses with catch stateme...

Loop-extended symbolic execution on binary programs
Mixed concrete and symbolic execution is an important technique for finding and understanding software bugs, including securityrelevant ones. However, existing symbolic execution...

AVA: automated interpretation of dynamically detected anomalies
Dynamic analysis techniques have been extensively adopted to discover causes of observed failures. In particular, anomaly detection techniques can infer behavioral models from obs...
