  • What Is Rust's Unsafe?
    5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 10 Apr 2022
    I’m doing my PhD on the formal verification of Rust, and while you’re right that safe code provides a lot of informal advantages it also dramatically simplified form reasoning.

    In particular, the dirty secret of C verifiers is that they don’t handle pointers all that well. Either you find yourself doing a lot of manual proof work or you have to dramatically simplify the memory model.

    In contrast, when verifying safe Rust, the rules of the borrow checker allow us to dramatically simplify the verification work. All of a sudden verifying a manual memory program with pointers (borrows) becomes as simple as verifying a basic imperative language. I’ve been working on a tool: https://github.com/xldenis/creusot to put this into practice

    On the other hand, the moment you dive into unsafe, all bets are off and you find yourself wading through the marshes of (weak) memory models with your favorite CSL as your only friend.

    Note that there are other tools trying to deal with formal statements about Rust code. AIUI, Rust developers are working on forming a proper working group for pursuing these issues. We might get a RFC-standardized way of expressing formal/logical conditions about Rust code, which would be a meaningful first step towards supporting proof-carrying code within Rust.

  • AdaCore and Ferrous Systems Joining Forces to Support Rust
    14 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Feb 2022
    This is exciting! I've met with people from AdaCore and Ferrous systems (individually) several times and they're all serious, competent and motivated.

    I'm curious what kinds of software they want to (eventually) verify, my PhD thesis is developing a verification tool for Rust (https://github.com/xldenis/creusot) and I'm always on the look out for case studies to push me forward.

    The road to formally verified Rust is still long but in my unbiased opinion looking quite bright, especially compared to other languages like C.

  • Uncovered Intermediate Topics
    11 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 18 Dec 2021
    An introduction to formal verification in Rust! The whole field is probably is probably too big to cover fully, but an introduction should fit in a single lecture :) Topics that come to mind are Prusti, Cruseot, RustBelt, RustHorn, Stacked Borrows, Miri. These also lend themselves to do follow up topics on.

    There's a couple prototypes already, such as Prusti or Creusot.
