Overview

- This talk: symbolic analysis can guarantee universally composable (UC) key exchange
- (Paper also includes mutual authentication)
- Symbolic (Dolev-Yao) model: high-level framework
- Messages treated symbolically; adversary extremely limited
- Despite (general) undecidability, proofs can be automated
- Result: symbolic proofs are computationally sound (UC)
- For some protocols
- For strengthened symbolic definition of secrecy
- With UC theorems, suffices to analyze single session
- Implies decidability!

Two approaches to analysis

- Standard (computational) approach: reduce attacks to weakness of encryption
- Alternate approach: apply methods of the symbolic model
- Originally proposed by Dolev & Yao (1983)
- Cryptography without: probability, security parameter, etc.
- Messages are parse trees
- Countable symbols for keys (K, K’,…), names (A, B,…) and nonces (N, N’, Na, Nb, …)
- Encryption ( EK(M) ) pairing ( M || N ) are constructors
- Participants send/receive messages
- Output some key-symbol

The symbolic adversary

- Explicitly enumerated powers
- Interact with countable number of participants
- Knowledge of all public values, non-secret keys
- Limited set of re-write rules:

‘Traditional’ symbolic secrecy

- Conventional goal for symbolic secrecy proofs:

“If A or B output K, then no sequence of

interactions/rewrites can result in K”

- Undecidable in general [EG, HT, DLMS] but:
- Decidable with bounds [DLMS, RT]
- Also, general case can be automatically verified in practice
- Demo 1: analysis of both NSLv1, NSLv2
- So what?
- Symbolic model has weak adversary, strong assumptions
- We want computational properties!
- …But can we harness these automated tools?

Some previous work

General area:

- [AR]: soundness for indistinguishability
- Passive adversary
- [MW, BPW]: soundness for general trace properties
- Includes mutual authentication; active adversary
- Many, many others

Key-exchange in particular (independent work):

- [BPW]: (later)
- [CW]: soundness for key-exchange
- Traditional symbolic secrecy implies (weak) computational secrecy

Limitations of ‘traditional’ secrecy

- Big question:

Can ‘traditional’ symbolic secrecy imply standard

computational definitions of secrecy?

- Unfortunately, no
- Counter-example:
- Demo: NSLv2 satisfies traditional secrecy
- Cannot provide real-or-random secrecy in standard models
- Falls prey to the ‘Rackoff’ attack

Achieving soundness

- Soundness requires new symbolic definition of secrecy
- [BPW]: ‘traditional’ secrecy + ‘non-use’
- Thm: new definition implies secrecy (in their framework)
- But: must analyze infinite concurrent sessions and all resulting protocols
- Here: ‘traditional’ secrecy + symbolic real-or-random
- Non-interference property; close to ‘strong secrecy’ [B]
- Thm: new definition equivalent to UC secrecy
- Demonstrably automatable (Demo 2)
- Suffices to consider single session!

(Infinite concurrency results from joint-state UC theorems)

- Implies decidability (forthcoming)

Proof overview (soundness)

Symbolic

key-exchange

- Construct simulator
- Information-theoretic
- Must strengthen notion of UC public-key encryption
- Intermediate step: trace properties(as in [MW,BPW])
- Every activity-trace of UC adversary could also be produced by symbolic adversary
- Rephrase: UC adversary no more powerful than symbolic adversary

Single session UC KE

(ideal crypto)

UC w/ joint state [CR]

(Info-theor.)

Multi-session UC KE

(ideal crypto)

UC theorem

Multi-session KE

(CCA-2 crypto)

Summary & future work

- Result: symbolic proofs are computationally sound (UC)
- For some protocols
- For strengthened symbolic definition of secrecy
- With UC theorems, suffices to analyze single session
- Implies decidability!
- Additional primitives
- Have public-key encryption, signatures [P]
- Would like symmetric encryption, MACs, PRFs…
- Symbolic representation of other goals
- Commitment schemes, ZK, MPC…

Two challenges

- Traditional secrecy is undecidable for:
- Unbounded message sizes [EG, HT] or
- Unbounded number of concurrent sessions

(Decidable when both are bounded) [DLMS]

- Traditional secrecy is unsound
- Cannot imply standard security definitions for computational key exchange
- Example: NSLv2 (Demo)

Prior work: BPW

New symbolic definition

Theory Practice

Implies UC key exchange

(Public-key & symmetric encryption, signatures)

Our work

New symbolic definition:

‘real-or-random’

Theory Practice

Automated verification!

Equiv. to UC key exchange

(Public-key encryption [CH], signatures [P])

UC suffices to examine single protocol run

Decidability?

Demo 3: UC security for NSLv1

Our work: solving the challenges

- Soundness: requires new symbolic definition of secrecy
- Ours: purely symbolic expression of ‘real-or-random’ security
- Result: new symbolic definition equivalent to UC key exchange
- UC theorems: sufficient to examine single protocol in isolation
- Thus, bounded numbers of concurrent sessions
- Automated verification of our new definition is decidable!… Probably

Summary

- Summary:
- Symbolic key-exchange sound in UC model
- Computational crypto can now harness symbolic tools
- Now have the best of both worlds: security and automation!
- Future work

Adversary gets key when output by participants

- Does this matter? (Demo 2)

Secure key-exchange [CW]

P

P

A

- Adversary interacts with participants
- Afterward, receives real key, random key
- Protocol secure if adversary unable to distinguish
- NSLv1, NSLv2 satisfy symbolic def of secrecy
- Therefore, NSLv1, NSLv2 meet this definition as well

- Encryption/decryption

The Dolev-Yao model- Participants, adversary take turns
- Participant turn:

A

P1

P2

Dolev-Yao adversary powers

- Always in Know:
- Randomness generated by adversary
- Private keys generated by adversary
- All public keys

Dolev-Yao key exchange

- Assume that last step of (successful) protocol execution is local output of

(Finished Pi Pj K)

- Key Agreement: If P1 outputs (Finished P1 P2 K)and P2 outputs(Finished P2 P1 K’)thenK = K’.
- Traditional Dolev-Yao secrecy: If Pi outputs

(Finished Pi Pj K), then K can never be in adversary’s set Know

- Not enough!

Goal of the environment

- Recall that the environment Z sees outputs of participants
- Goal: distinguish real protocol from simulation
- In protocol execution, output of participants (session key) related to protocol messages
- In ideal world, output independent of simulated protocol
- If there exists a detectable relationship between session key and protocol messages, environment can distinguish
- Example: last message of protocol is {“confirm”}K where K is session key
- Can decrypt with participant output from real protocol
- Can’t in simulated protocol

Real-or-random (1/3)

- Need: real-or-random property for session keys
- Can think of traditional goal as “computational”
- Need a stronger “decisional” goal
- Expressed in Dolev-Yao framework
- Let be a protocol
- Let r be , except that when participant outputs (Finished Pi Pj Kr),Kr added to Know
- Let f be , except that when any participant outputs (Finished Pi Pj Kr), fresh key Kf added to adversary set Know
- Want: adversary can’t distinguish two protocols

Real-or-random (2/3)

- Attempt 1: Let Traces() be traces adversary can induce on . Then:

Traces(r) = Traces(f)

- Problem: Kf not in any traces of r
- Attempt 2:

Traces(r) = Rename(Traces(f), KfKr)

- Problem: Two different traces may “look” the same
- Example protocol: If participant receives session key, encrypts “yes” under own (secret) key. Otherwise, encrypts “no” instead
- Traces different, but adversary can’t tell

Real-or-random (3/3)

- Observable part of trace: Abadi-Rogaway pattern
- Undecipherable encryptions replaced by “blob”
- Example:

t = {N1, N2}K1, {N2}K2, K1-1

Pattern(t) = {N1, N2}K1, K2, K1-1

- Final condition:

Pattern(Traces(r))

=

Pattern(Rename(Traces(f), KfKr)))

Main results

- Let key-exchange in the Dolev-Yao model be:
- Key agreement
- Traditional Dolev-Yao secrecy of session key
- Real-or-random
- Let be a simple protocol that uses UC asymmetric encryption. Then:

DY() satisfies Dolev-Yao key exchange

iff

UC() securely realizes FKE

Future work

- How to prove Dolev-Yao real-or-random?
- Needed for UC security
- Not previously considered in the Dolev-Yao literature
- Can it be automated?
- Weaker forms of DY real-or-random
- Similar results for symmetric encryption and signatures
