Motivation (argument that makes the contributions seem inevitable!)- Information security is important.- Cryptographic primitives are crucial for network-based security.- Language-based security is practical way to increase confidence in security - Current support for cryptographic primitives in languages is not good.
Contributions- Design of a cryptographic library in Jif- Show how type system can encode desirable invariants- Investigation of event driven vs. threaded programs with information flow- Implementation of a (reasonably) substantial system using Jif
Section II: Background material
Jif and Decentralized Label Model- Important features (label abstraction, first-class principals, declassification, endorsement), syntax, semantics
