SuperGuard C Library Safety Qualification Suite
The SuperGuard C Library Safety Qualification Suite is a requirements-based test suite for the C standard library with full traceability between the requirements derived from the ISO C language definition and the individual library tests. It is designed to support the qualification of implementations of the C standard library for safety-critical applications, both for third-party (COTS) and for self-developed or maintained C library implementations.
SuperGuard provides a detailed breakdown of the ISO C library specification into the requirements that must be met by an implementation of the library. These requirements are linked to test specifications that describe how a test verifies the requirements. In turn, the test specification is linked to tests in SuperGuard. In this way, a detailed path is created from the specification to the tests that is easy to comprehend and verify, so that it can be used to create confidence in the compliance of the C library implementation with the specification.
High Structural Code Coverage
SuperGuard is built to achieve high structural code coverage of the target library implementation. In addition to requirements traceability, this provides a second path to demonstrate completeness of the test suite.
The suite comes with a software tool that reports the requirements that are met, and which are not met, by a C library implementation as verified by a run of the test suite for a specific use case or configuration.
SuperGuard includes many more unique features that are not found in other qualification suites:
- Compliance with the requirements of functional safety standards
- Very easy and quick installation and configuration
- Parallel testing automatically splits validation runs into a preconfigured numbers of threads to speed up the validation
- Full control over test sets
- Easy addition of your own specific tests
- Excellent professional support
