We define translations between models in our logic and strand-space models of security protocols, and we compare the results obtained with respect to the level of abstraction that is inherent in each of the formalisms.

Relating Strand Spaces and Distributed Temporal Logic for Security Protocol Analysis

Abstract

In previous work, we introduced a version of distributed temporal logic that is well-suited both for verifying security protocols and as a metalogic for reasoning about, and relating, different security protocol models. In this paper, we formally investigate the relationship between our approach and strand spaces, which is one of the most successful and widespread formalisms for analyzing security protocols. We define translations between models in our logic and strand-space models of security protocols, and we compare the results obtained with respect to the level of abstraction that is inherent in each of the formalisms. This allows us to clarify different aspects of strand spaces that are often left implicit, as well as pave the way to transfer results, techniques and tools across the two approaches.
