Call for papers — ENTROPY 2019
ENabling TRust through Os Proofs … and beYond

Second International workshop on the use of theorem provers for modelling
and verification at the hardware-software interface

Co-located with EuroS&P'19, KTH, Stockholm, June 2019
**************************************************************************

AIM AND SCOPE

Low level software such as kernels and drivers, along with the hardware
this software runs on, is critical for application security. In contrast
with user applications, OS kernel software runs in privileged CPU mode
and is thus highly critical. Large projects such as seL4, VeriSoft,
CertiKoS and Prosper have invested considerable resources in developing
formally verified systems such as hypervisors and microkernels, supplying
proofs that they satisfy critical properties. Such proofs are delicate in
terms of the scale and complexity of real systems, the models used in
performing the proof search, and the relations between the two, which
recent vulnerabilities such as Spectre and Meltdown have shown to be a
highly non-trivial issue.

The purpose of this workshop is to share, compare and disseminate best
practices, tools and methodologies to verify OS kernels, also setting the
stage for future steps in the direction of fully verified systems,
dealing with issues related to modelling, model validation, and large
proof maintenance through system evolution. On one hand, we need to make
low-level proofs more scalable, modular and cost-effective. On the other
hand, once certified systems are available, preservation and maintenance
of their proofs of validity become key questions.

The goal of the ENTROPY workshop is to provide a forum for researchers
and practitioners in this space, linking operating systems, formal
methods, and hardware architecture, interested in system design as well
as machine verified mathematical proofs using proof assistants such as
Coq, Isabelle and HOL4.

This will be the second edition of the ENTROPY workshop series. The
first workshop was organised by the Pip Development Team at University
of Lille in 2018.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

* Verified kernels and hypervisors
* Verified security architectures and models
* Tools and frameworks for hardware security analysis
* Tools and frameworks for security analysis
* Formal hardware models and model validation techniques
* Theorem prover based tools and frameworks for verification
of low level code
* Combinations of static analysis and theorem proving
* Theories and techniques for compositional security analysis
* Case studies and industrial experience reports
* Proof maintenance techniques and problems
* Compositional models and verification techniques
* Proof oriented design

The aim of the workshop is to stimulate innovation and active exchange
of ideas, so position papers, work-in-progress and industrial
experience submissions are welcome.
