  • First title to offer a full treatment of formal correctness of security protocols
  • Advances significant extensions to the method of analysis, while the findings on the protocols analysed are novel and illuminating

Computer network security is critical to fraud prevention and accountability. Network participants are required to observe predefined steps called security protocols, whose proof of correctness is evidence that each protocol step preserves some desired properties.

The author investigates proofs of correctness of realistic security protocols in a formal, intuitive setting. The protocols examined include Kerberos versions, smartcard protocols, non-repudiation protocols, and certified email protocols. The method of analysis, the Inductive Method in the theorem prover Isabelle, turns out to be both powerful and flexible. This research advances significant extensions to the method of analysis, while the findings on the protocols analysed are novel and illuminating.

This book will benefit researchers and graduate students in the fields of formal methods, information security, inductive methods, and networking.
