The Gallium project coordinates an Action de Recherche Amont in the programme Sécurité des systèmes embarqué et Intelligence Ambiante funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche . This 3-year action (2005-2008) is named ``Compcert'' and involves the Gallium and Marelle INRIA projects as well as CNAM/ENSIIE (Cedric laboratory) and University Paris 7/CNRS (PPS laboratory). The theme of this action is the mechanized verification of compilers and the development of supporting tools for specification and proof of programs. Xavier Leroy is the principal investigator for this action.
The Gallium, Logical and Protheo projects participate in an Action Concertée Incitative ``Sécurité et Informatique'' (ACI SI) named ``Modulogic'', coordinated by the LIP6 laboratory at university Paris 6 and also involving the Cedric laboratory at CNAM. The theme of this action is the design of a development environment for certified software, emphasizing modular development and proof. Our participation to Modulogic is centered around the Focal language (see section 6.4.2 ), with the long-term goals of incorporating rewriting into Focal and studying how to apply the Focal methodology to security-sensitive applications.
