Static analysis is an approach to determine information about the program without actually executing it. There has been much research in the static analysis of concurrent programs. However, very little academic research has been done on the formal analysis of message passing or process-oriented languages. We currently miss formal analysis tools and techniques for concurrent process-oriented languages such as Erasmus. In this dissertation, we focus on the problem of static analysis of large Erasmus programs. This can help us toward building more reliable Erasmus software systems. Reasoning about non-deterministic large Erasmus program using static analyzer is hard. These kinds of programs can quickly exhaust the computational and memory resources of the static analyzer tool. We use Abstract Interpretation to reason about Erasmus programs. To use the Abstract Interpretation theory, we introduce a lattice for Erasmus communications and an Event Order Predictor algorithm to statically determine the order that events happen in an Erasmus program. By using fixed-point theory of lattice, we compute a safe approximation of reachable states of an Erasmus programs. We also offer a Resettable Event order Vector for Erasmus processes to realistically implement our vector for large Erasmus programs using bounded space. We believe that our formal approach is also applicable to other types of process-oriented programs and MPI programs.

A self-contained introduction to abstract interpretation–based static analysis, an essential resource for students, developers, and users. Static program analysis, or static analysis, aims to discover semantic properties of programs without running them. It plays an important role in all phases of development, including verification of specifications and programs, the synthesis of optimized code, and the refactoring and maintenance of software applications. This book offers a self-contained introduction to static analysis, covering the basics of both theoretical foundations and practical considerations in the use of static analysis tools. By offering a quick and comprehensive introduction for nonspecialists, the book fills a notable gap in the literature, which until now has consisted largely of scientific articles on advanced topics. The text covers the mathematical foundations of static analysis, including semantics, semantic abstraction, and computation of program invariants; more advanced notions and techniques, including techniques for enhancing the cost-accuracy balance of analysis and abstractions for advanced programming features and answering a wide range of semantic questions; and techniques for implementing and using static analysis tools. It begins with background information and an intuitive and informal introduction to the main static analysis principles and techniques. It then formalizes the scientific foundations of program analysis techniques, considers practical aspects of implementation, and presents more advanced applications. The book can be used as a textbook in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in static analysis and program verification, and as a reference for users, developers, and experts.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2019 in the subject Computer Science - IT-Security, grade: 1,0, Technical University of Munich (Fakultät für Informatik), language: English, abstract: The topic of this thesis is to develop a graph-based static analysis framework for Java code that tolerates incomplete or non-compiling source code. For this purpose, the concept of Code Property Graphs (CPGs) is to be researched and extended, in order to provide information about more complex erroneous patterns in Java source code. Additionally, an evaluation of the resulting graph model is to be performed, by searching for cryptographic vulnerabilities in publicly available Java projects. This evaluation needs to show, whether this graph-based analysis approach is capable of finding security issues in Java code, and how feasible the analysis is from a performance point of view. Automatic code analysis is a widely used technique to find and eliminate errors in software projects. Instead of executing the program and verify that its behavior is correct, as dynamic analysis does it, static analysis is applied on its source code. Here, we search for suspicious patterns that are likely to indicate erroneous behavior. A special type of software bugs are those errors, that lead to security vulnerabilities. In this case, attackers may be able to undermine fundamental security aspects, by exfiltrating sensitive user data from server applications or assume control over the machine running the program in question. Security vulnerabilities in the code can have drastic consequences, which is why it is important to identify them as fast as possible and fix them immediately afterwards. This thesis extends the concept of Code Property Graphs (CPGs), which has been proposed for static analysis of C/C++ code, to be applied on programs and incomplete code snippets written in Java. Unifying Abstract Syntax Trees (ASTs), Control Flow Graphs (CFGs) and Data Flow Graphs (DFGs) in a single datastructure, this approach enables searching for vulnerabilities whose code patterns are spread out across the boundaries of single methods and classes. These patterns are identified using the graph query language cypher, which is provided by the graph database Neo4j. In an evaluation run on 100 public repositories on GitHub using cryptography, 135 findings of cryptographic API misuse have been identified using this technique. These include the use of insecure algorithms, like the Data Encryption Standard (DES) or Electronic Code Book mode (ECB), and hardcoded passwords that are used for encryption purposes. This thesis has been created in cooperation with Fraunhofer AISEC

The existing literature currently available to students and researchers is very general, covering only the formal techniques of static analysis. This book presents real examples of the formal techniques called "abstract interpretation" currently being used in various industrial fields: railway, aeronautics, space, automotive, etc. The purpose of this book is to present students and researchers, in a single book, with the wealth of experience of people who are intrinsically involved in the realization and evaluation of software-based safety critical systems. As the authors are people currently working within the industry, the usual problems of confidentiality, which can occur with other books, is not an issue and so makes it possible to supply new useful information (photos, architectural plans, real examples).
