At next week's seminar, we will have Moses Liskov from MITRE discussing a
crypto protocol analysis tool; we will start at bit later (10:30AM on
Wednesday) followed by lunch in the BUSEC lab. See you there!

CPSA: An Accessible Protocol Analysis and Design Tool
Moses Liskov. MITRE.
Wed, March 26, 10:30am - 11:30am

The Cryptographic Protocol Shapes Analyzer (CPSA) is an open-source tool
that attempts to enumerate all essentially different possible executions of
a protocol given some initial assumptions.  We call such executions the
"shapes" of the protocol.  Many naturally occurring protocols have only
finitely many, indeed very few shapes.  Flaws in a protocol's design can be
observed clearly in the shapes.  This allows a protocol designer to obtain
frequent feedback during the design process, even without a rigorous
articulation of the protocol's security goals.
