Michal Moskal gives us a short introduction at the Verifying C Compiler (VCC) project. VCC is a tool that proves correctness of annotated concurrent C programs or finds problems in them. VCC extends C with design by contract features, like pre- and postcondition as well as type invariants. The current primary goal of the VCC project is to to verify Microsoft Hyper-V. Hyper-V is a hypervisor -- a thin layer of software that sits just above the hardware and beneath one or more operating systems. The Hypervisor verification project is a cooperation between European Microsoft Innovation Center in Aachen, Germany the RiSE group at Microsoft Research in Redmond and the Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany.
The Research in Software Engineering team (RiSE) coordinates Microsoft's research in Software Engineering in Redmond, USA.
