  • 1. UNSW Sydney
  • 2. The University of Melbourne
  • 3. Proofcraft & UNSW Sydney


This VM artifact and proof release accompanies the FM 2023 paper "Formalising the Prevention of Microarchitectural Timing Channels by Operating Systems" (R. Sison, S. Buckley, T. Murray, G. Klein, G. Heiser).

The artifact VM contains a 64-bit Ubuntu 22.04.1 installation with username and password "evaluator", whose home directory contains (1) the proof release of Isabelle/HOL proof code provided as supplement material for the FM 2023 paper and (2) the pre-installed system distribution of the version of the Isabelle proof assistant (April 2020) under which it was mechanically checked.

Alongside the artifact VM image (tpmodel-artifact-vm_2022-11-20.ova), we provide also the README, License.txt and stand-alone proof release ZIP package ( that are in the VM's "evaluator" user's home directory.

For license information and further details (including step-by-step instructions and a guide to paper-relevant features), see the License.txt and README, respectively.

Note: This version of the Zenodo deposit (2022-11-20_unpack) is identical to the contents of the top-level ZIP file of the original version (2022-11-20), but unpacked for ease of access.
