    Project mention: CVE-2023-4863: Heap buffer overflow in WebP (Chrome) | | 2023-09-12

    > those applications need the proof for correctness so that more dangerous code---say, what would need `unsafe` in Rust---can be safely added

    There are actually already tools built for this very purpose in Rust (see Kani [1] for instance).

    Formal verification has a serious scaling problem, so forming programs in such a way that there are a few performance-critical areas that use unsafe routines seems like the best route. I feel like Rust leans into this paradigm with `unsafe` blocks.

  • prusti-dev

    A static verifier for Rust, based on the Viper verification infrastructure.

    Project mention: Programming Languages Going Above and Beyond | | 2023-06-29

    You might be interested in the Prusti project, which statically checks for absence of reachable panics, overflows etc. It also allows user-defined specifications such as pre and post-conditions, loop body invariants, termination checking and so on.

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • creusot

    deductive verification of Rust code. (semi) automatically prove your code satisfies your specifications!

    Project mention: Conditioonal Compilation across Crates? | /r/rust | 2023-07-04

    However, it seems that C is not "notified" whether --cfg thing is set, only the main crate being built is. Regardless of this flag, the dummy macro is always chosen. Am I doing something wrong? It should work; the Creusot project is doing something similar.

  • ed25519-dalek

    Fast and efficient ed25519 signing and verification in Rust.

  • CreuSAT

    CreuSAT - A formally verified SAT solver written in Rust and verified with Creusot.

  • pyrustify

    A Python package written in Rust for email verification without sending any emails.
