Cross-Layer Verification of Type Flaw Attacks on Security Protocols
Long, Benjamin W., Fidge, Colin J., & Carrington, David A. (2007) Cross-Layer Verification of Type Flaw Attacks on Security Protocols. In Dobbie, Gillian (Ed.) 30th Australasian Computer Science Conference (ACSC 2007), January 2007, Ballarat.
Security protocols are often specified at the application layer; however, application layer specifications give little detail regarding message data structures at the presentation layer upon which some implementation-dependent attacks rely. In this paper we present an approach to verifying security protocols in which both the application and presentation layers are modelled. Using the Group Domain of Interpretation protocol as an example, our application layer specification of the protocol is used as input to the AVISPA model checking tool for analysis. Two type flaw attacks are found via model checking which are then verified against the corresponding presentation layer specification, thus identifying the minimal requirements to prevent the attacks.
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.
