Formal Methods for NC3 Systems
What if we told you there is a very concrete way of updating and securing the most complex NC3 systems? Joining us is Adam Wick, Principal Scientist, Mobile Security & Systems Software for Galois, and one of the world’s leading experts on secure operating systems design and implementation. In this paper and call to action, Wick discusses how formal methods, a precise mathematical description of a system’s function is a crucial component to the design and implementation of CATALINK — a radically simple and secure nuclear crisis communications hotline. We dive deep further into the substance of how formal proofs not only minimize language misunderstandings in a system as complex as NC3, they provide a rigorous executable specification on how a system such as CATALINK is supposed to run.
