Publications: My research is, of course, accessible through the list of publications. It is my goal to address security and correctness issues by software analysis in such a way that both fundamental and practical results are achieved. The software that is studied can be written both in functional, an imperative style, an object-oriented style or any other style. In fact, I consider any specification or design that has the property that it is executable, to be software and hence it can be subject of this research.
Recent Research Topics on Software Analysis:
· Resource Consumption Analysis.This is research I am doing together with Olha Shkaravksa and Ron van Kesteren in the NWO – AHA project (since sept 1, 2006) and in the CHARTER project. A good estimate of heap consumption is important for security reasons since it may help to avoid Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. We created a separate site with resource consumption research results.
· Secure ICT for Sustainability. There are substantial gains that can be achieved with Green ICT. Such gains may come with new risks. Both in reducing the energy consumption of ICT itself and in the use of ICT for reducing energy consumption risks can be easily introduced. Often these new risks are in the field of privacy and security. The challenge of introducing green ICT and addressing at the same time the new risksois invesitgated in the GoGreen project on Smart Homes, the Sentinels Secure Metering project on Smart Meters and Road Pricing and in the work of Carlos Montes Portela on Smart Grid Architectural Design. Recently, we started an initiative to increase the attention for Sustainable ICT and Energy research: SIENergyLab.
Formal Modelling. There are two strands: industrial applications and functional languages. For industry I have been
working on model checking properties with mCrl2
(a case from Aia with Yaroslav
Usenko) and on proving properties with PVS (a
case from Cybernetix with Sjaak Smetsers and Leonard
Lensink). The techniques are essentially combined in the work with Bernard van
Gastel, Sjaak Smetsers and Leonard Lensink on the readers-writers Qt library of
TrollTech. The results are published in FMICS 2007 (2 papers), FMICS 2008 (1 paper, best paper
award) and FMICS2009 (1 paper). With respect to functional languages I worked on specification
and compositional reasoning for functional graphical editor components (see the GEC-site) and on proving properties of functional
programs. Sparkle is
the integrated proof tool for the functional
programming language Clean. I have made a Sparkle
site with links to Sparkle info and with the very
latest Sparkle version
with which I/O proofs have been made. This I/O work was done with Malcolm Dowse
