Jörg Bormann (Siemens EDA, D)


The talk will present the new tool Questa Verify Trust, with which Siemens EDA exploits its research in VE-VIDES. Questa Verify Trust searches for trust related RTL bugs that are classified in databases like the Common Weaknesses Enumeration database Formal verification appears to be an ideal technology for the identification of such weaknesses. Therefore, Siemens EDA researched an extensible framework for such checks and populated it with with already existing verification technology as well as technology newly developed in VE-VIDES.
