Abstract

In this work, we set out to develop P4 AIG, a tool for the static verification of programmable data planes using sequential circuit analysis. P4 AIG targets P4 programs by treating them as hardware pipelines rather than software programs. P4 AIG allows for the circuit-level treatment of P4 programs, a feature not available for traditional software verification techniques. We believe that P4 AIG will exploit the nature of P4 programs to achieve higher scalability in verification.
