Support of Advanced Test cOverage Criteria for RObust and Secure Software


The consortium includes three partners

CEA List

Software Reliability Laboratory (25 researchers) of CEA List has strong expertise on formal methods and test generation techniques. It has been working on design and development of tools for analysis and verification of software since more than 20 years. Among the most successful products and technology transfers, the Caveat proof tool for C programs used by Airbus since 1998 (qualified for the DO-178B in 2008), its successor the open-source verification platform for C code Frama-C used by Airbus and NASA, and the GATeL testing tool used by Esterel Technologies.


MERCE is the European research center of Mitsubishi Electric Corp. group and works, among other themes, on applying formal methods ‚Äč and rigorous testing techniques within the group. MERCE applies various formal approaches to security, factory automation, automotive, and railway domains among others. MERCE is strongly interested in integrating the SATOCROSS toolkit in their industrial practice.


SnT is an interdisciplinary research centre of the Luxembourg University that brings together researchers from partners and the university faculties to carry out research and PhD education in Security, Reliability and Trust. The centre aims high impact and excellence beyond the academic community by collaborating with external partners such as industries, government bodies, institutions, and international actors.
