Correct Transformation from CCSL to Promela for verification


Transforming a specification language into a language supported by a verification tool is a widely adopted way of doing formal verification. It enables the reuse of existing languages and tools. In this paper, we propose a correct transformation from CCSL to Promela to do formal verification by SPIN. To implement the transformation, we introduce "coincident instant" into Promela to deal with the discrete time in CCSL. Then we define property patterns to ensure that correctness properties are verified "coincident instant" by "coincident instant" during the verification. We define checkpoint transition systems (CTSs) to model source CCSL specifications and transformed Promel models. The proof of the correctness of our transformation relies on the checkpoint bisimulation defined over CTS. If a property is satisfied by a transformed Promela model, then it is satisfied by the source CCSL specification.
