Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

Abstract

The use of computer-based systems in several domains such as automotive, industrial automation, and transportation has increased significantly over the last years so that software verification now plays an important role in ensuring the overall product quality. The value of the counterexample and safety properties generated by Bounded Model Checkers to create test case and to debug these systems is highly recognized. In this paper, we describe a method to integrate the bounded model checker ESBMC with the CUnit framework. This method aims to extract the safety properties generated by ESBMC to generate automatically test cases using the rich set of assertions provided by the CUnit framework. We show the effectiveness of our proposed method over publicly available benchmarks.
