Ascert is an FNRAE (Fondation de Recherche pour l'Aéronautique et l'Espace ) project (2009–2012) between the INRIA-Bretagne Atlantique, the INRIA Rhône-Alpes, the INRIA Paris-Rocquencourt, and the ENS. The goal of this project is to study the use of theorem provers so as to formally certify static analyses. Several approaches are considered: the certification of the static analyzer (once and for all) versus the independent certification of each analyzer run. The project will focus on the certification of some parts of the Apron library and the Astrée analyzer by means of the Coq theorem prover. Patrick Cousot and Radhia Cousot are the principal investigators for this action.
