Fibre channel protocol: Formal specification and verification
 by Vijay Nagasamy, Sreeranga Rajan & and Preeti R. Panda.

From Sixth Annual Silicon Valley Networking Conference.
SysTech Research.
April, 1995.

The complexity of the Fibre Channel protocol poses a challenge to design its implementation "right-the-first-time." In this work we have investigated the formal specication and mechanical verication of the Fibre Channel Protocol to address issues of correctness. We present abstract models of the FC-2 layer protocols in SpecCharts and the automated verication of a portion of the fibre channel node loop core implementation in a mechanical verication system called PVS. We show that this approach can supplement traditional simulation based approaches to obtain better coverage and confidence during verication.
