BCM Seminar: A Short Introduction to Two Approaches in Formal Verification of Security Protocols: Model Checking and Theorem Proving
Mohsen Pourpouneh, postdoc, Department of Food and Resource Economics, will give a seminar titled 'A Short Introduction to Two Approaches in Formal Verification of Security Protocols: Model Checking and Theorem Proving'.
In this talk, we shortly review two formal approaches in verification of security protocols; model checking and theorem proving. Model checking is based on studying the behavior of protocols via generating all different behaviors of a protocol and checking whether the desired goals are satisfied in all instances or not. Theorem proving is based on deriving the desired goals from assumption of protocols via a deduction system. We define a deduction system named Simple Logic for Authentication to formally define the notion of authenticated communication based on the structure of the messages.
