COFIE: a regex-like interaction and control flow description

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperpeer-review


The integration of safety-critical software is still human-supervised, therefore it is time-consuming, expensive and error-prone. A fully automated integration process would be cheaper and more reliable, but it demands extra meta-information about the software and related interactions, since functional and non-functional properties, which are not visible from the binary, must be handled. Therefore, we propose COFIE, a regex-like description of the interaction behavior and control flow of functions (and tasks) in a module. It is the first step for our ultimate goal of achieving a full automation on software integration
