Sound Verification Procedures for Temporal Properties of Infinite-State Systems

Abstract : First-Order Linear Temporal Logic (FOLTL) is particularly convenient to specify distributed systems, in particular because of the unbounded aspect of their state space. We have recently exhibited novel decidable fragments of FOLTL which pave the way for tractable verification. However, these fragments are not expressive enough for realistic specifications. In this paper, we propose three transformations to translate a typical FOLTL specification into two of its decidable fragments. All three transformations are proved sound (the associated propositions are proved in Coq) and have a high degree of automation. To put these techniques into practice, we propose a specification language relying on FOLTL, as well as a prototype which performs the verification, relying on existing model checkers. This approach allows us to successfully verify safety and liveness properties for various specifications of distributed systems from the literature.
