Static program analysis, Javacard, Certification, AFSCM

Jacal is a JAvaCard AnaLyseur developed on top of the SAWJA (see Section  5.2 ) platform. This proprietary software verifies automatically that Javacard programs conform with the security guidelines issued by the AFSCM (Association Française du Sans Contact Mobile). Jacal is based on the theory of abstract interpretation and combines several object-oriented and numeric analyses to automatically infer sophisticated invariants about the program behaviour. The result of the analysis is thereafter harvest to check that it is sufficient to ensure the desired security properties.
