Visible to the public A Formal Specification of x86 Memory Management

Abstract:

We are developing a formal and executable x86 ISA specification that includes memory management via paging and segmentation. We regularly use this specification to mechanically verify user-level x86 machine-code programs. Our recent efforts have been devoted to developing a theory for reasoning about system-level programs that are aware of memory management mechanisms like paging.
