Checking deviations in execution flow of a software process
I am working on a research project. Having a software system in which I have integrated the logging system by using the database queries that logs every action in the software systems when something happens or something changes in the software like any action performed.
What I want to do is that I have original process model of that software in the form of paper and I want to know that if there is deviation made from that process madel by any of the hacker or someone like developer intentionally modified or bypassed the real execution flow of that software working. In process mining I guess it is called conformance checking.
I will extract the logs of that software system and I will use them as input for prom and generate process model from it. In this way I will get what the software is doing. On the other hand I have the original version of that software process model in the form of a paper.
My question is can I compare the original process model and the process model generated by the software logs. If yes then what will be the strategy to check that so that I may know the deviations done in the software system by developer or any hacker that has bypassed the execution flow.
I apologize for long explanation but it will clear the question that what am I doing and what I want to do.
