Complementing Computational Protocol Analysis with Formal Specifications
Choo, Kim-Kwang R., Boyd, Colin A., Hitchcock, Yvonne, & Maitland, Greg M. (2005) Complementing Computational Protocol Analysis with Formal Specifications. In Dimitrakos, Theo & Martinelli, Fabio (Eds.) IFIP TC1 WG1.7 Second International Workshop on Formal Aspects in Security and Trust - FAST 2004, 26 - 27 August, Toulouse, France.
The computational proof model of Bellare and Rogaway for cryptographic protocol analysis is complemented by providing a formal specification of the actions of the adversary and the protocol entities. This allows a matching model to be used in both a machine-generated analysis and a human-generated computational proof. Using a protocol of Jakobsson and Pointcheval as a case study, it is demonstrated that flaws in the protocol could have been found with this approach, providing evidence that the combination of human and computer analysis can be more effective than either alone. As well as finding the known flaw, previously unknown flaws in the protocol are discovered by the automatic analysis.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
