BLAST (Berkeley Lazy Abstraction Software verification Tool) is a static software verification tool for C language that solves the reachability problem, i.e. whether a given program location can be reached from an entry point (
main function) by a valid execution.
Verification of safety properties may be reduced to the reachability, and BLAST is used for such verification in the Linux Driver Verification project.
The BLAST has been developed for ten years by a number of people. The version maintained here is based on BLAST v2.5 released in 2008 by Dirk Beyer, Rupak Majumdar, Ranjit Jhala, and Thomas A. Henzinger. For a full list of contributors, refer to the source:README file.
