CPAL-ES, A Security Protocol Analysis Workbench

Alec Yasinsac - Florida State University

Apr 11, 2001


Like computer programs, Security Protocols are difficult to verify. Many of the existing formal methods used for this purpose are complex, hard to use, and not well-suited to large, complex, modern security protocols. The demand for effective security protocols is greatly expanded by introduction of e-commerce and other Internet needs. To date, there is limited work targeted at analyzing these large, complex security protocols. The CPAL-ES Security Protocol Analysis Workbench targets this purpose. In this talk, I'll give an overview of the workbench and discuss how it will help solve this vital problem.
