Abstract

Algorithms for ensuring fault tolerance are key ingredients in many applications such as avionics and networking. There is an increasing demand to integrate (formal) validation in the design process of these algorithms as they are often part of safety critical systems. We propose the use of an infinite state model checker for safety properties, called mcmt, to assist in the design of the considered class of algorithms. We apply mcmt to the verification of the Agreement property of a reliable broadcast algorithm proposed by Chandra and Toueg. Agreement as the safety property to check.
