We are concerned to give certain guarantees about the security of a system. We identify two kinds of attack: the internally scheduled attack (exemplified by Trojan Horse attacks) and externally scheduled attacks (exemplified by timing attacks). In this paper we focus on the latter. We present a semantic framework for studying such attacks in the context of PCCP, a simple process algebra with a constraint store. We show that a measure of the efficacy of an attacker can be determined by considering its observable behaviour over the ” average” store of the system (for some number of steps). We show how to construct an analysis to determine the average store using the technique of probabilistic abstract interpretation.
