Abstract

Secure compilation investigates when compilation chains preserve security properties. Over the years, different formal criteria and proof techniques have been put forward for proving a compiler secure. However, these proposals require a lot of manual effort by compiler designers. This paper introduces a formal approach to mechanically support these efforts. We focus on the specific class of robust safety properties and we propose a translation validation approach that leverages program analysis techniques to check that a compilation run preserves security.
