Challenge-Response: Proof Idea

m, A

n, sigB {m, n, A}

A

B

sigA {m, n, B}

- Alice reasons: if Bob is honest, then:
- only Bob can generate his signature. [protocol independent]
- if Bob generates a signature of the form sigB {m, n, A},
- he sends it as part of msg 2 of the protocol and
- he must have received msg1 from Alice. [protocol specific]

- Alicededuces:Received (B, msg1) Λ Sent (B, msg2)

- Reason about local information
- I know my own actions

- Incorporate knowledge of protocol
- Honest people faithfully follow protocol

- No explicit reasoning about intruder
- Absence of bad action expressed as a positive property of good actions
- E.g., honest agent’s signature can be produced only by the agent

- Absence of bad action expressed as a positive property of good actions

Distinguishes our method from existing techniques

Formalism

- Cord calculus
- Protocol programming language
- Execution model (Symbolic/“Dolev-Yao”)

- Protocol logic
- Expressing protocol properties

- Proof system
- Proving protocol properties
- Soundness theorem

Challenge-Response as Cords

m, A

n, sigB {m, n, A}

A

B

sigA {m, n, B}

RespCR(B) = [

receive Y, B, y, Y;

new n;

send B, Y, n, sigB{y, n, Y};

receive Y, B, sigY{y, n, B};

]

InitCR(A, X) = [

new m;

send A, X, m, A;

receive X, A, x, sigX{m, x, A};

send A, X, sigA{m, x, X};

]

Challenge Response: Property

- Modal form: [ actions ]P
- precondition: Fresh(A,m)
- actions: [ Initiator role actions ]A
- postcondition:
- Honest(B) ActionsInOrder(
- send(A, {A,B,m}),
- receive(B, {A,B,m}),
- send(B, {B,A,{n, sigB {m, n, A}}}),
- receive(A, {B,A,{n, sigB {m, n, A}}}) )

Proof System

- Sample Axioms:
- Reasoning about possession:
- [receive m ]A Has(A,m)
- Has(A, {m,n}) Has(A, m) Has(A, n)

- Reasoning about crypto primitives:
- Honest(X) Decrypt(Y, encX{m}) X=Y
- Honest(X) Verify(Y, sigX{m})

- m’ (Send(X, m’) Contains(m’, sigX{m})

- Reasoning about possession:
- Soundness Theorem:
- Every provable formula is valid

Reasoning about Composition

- Non-destructive Combination:
- Ensure combined parts do not interfere
- In logic: invariance assertions

- Ensure combined parts do not interfere
- Additive Combination:
Accumulate security properties of combined parts, assuming they do not interfere

- In logic: before-after assertions

Proof steps (Intuition)

- Protocol independent reasoning
- Has(A, {m,n}) Has(A, m) Has(A, n)
- Still good: unaffected by composition

- Protocol specific reasoning
- “if honest Bob generates a signature of the form
- sigB {m, n, A},
- he sends it as part of msg 2 of the protocol and
- he must have received msg1 from Alice”

- Could break:Bob’s signature from one protocol could be used to attack another

- Technically:
- Protocol-specific proof steps use invariants
- Invariants must be preserved for safe composition

Rule:

==> {P, X[S1 ; S2], R}"
