Using Process Algebra to Design Better Protocols [chapter]

Peter Höfner
2016 The Role and Importance of Mathematics in Innovation  
Despite the maturity of formal description languages and formal methods for analyzing them, the description of real protocols is still overwhelmingly informal.  ...  The consequences of informal protocol description drag down industrial productivity and impede research progress". Pamela Zave [18]  ...  Formal Specification Languages I believe that formal specification languages and analysis techniques are now able to capture the full syntax and semantics of reasonably rich protocols.  ...

Protocol specification for OSI

Gregor V Bochmann
1990 Computer networks and ISDN systems  
This paper has been written as a tutorial on questions related to protocol specifications. It provides certain basic definitions related to protocol specifications and specification languages.  ...  In this context, the protocol specifications are of particular importance, since they represent the standards which are the basis for the implementation and testing of compatible OSI systems.  ...  The analysis corresponds to a part of what compilers do for programming languages.  ...

CRYPTOGRAPHIC PROTOCOLS SPECIFICATION AND VERIFICATION TOOLS - A SURVEY

Amol H. Shinde, Umbarkar A.J., Pillai N.R.
2017 ICTACT Journal on Communication Technology  
In this paper, we discuss the brief history of formal methods and tools that are useful for the formal verification of the cryptographic protocols.  ...  These tools give feedback to the designers of protocols in terms of loops and attacks in protocols to improve security.  ...  For verifying a protocol using Murφ, first the protocol should be modeled in the Murφ language and then this model is augmented with the specification of desired properties.  ...

Automatic protocol-conformance recommendations

Ernesto J. Alfonso
2011 Proceedings of the ACM international conference companion on Object oriented programming systems languages and applications companion - SPLASH '11  
Misuse of reusable components in software is common. Systems of software analysis based on formal specifications provide a mechanism for automatically detecting nonconformance to protocols.  ...  The focus of this research is to automatically generate task-specific user recommendations for correcting misuse of arbitrary protocols using results from software analysis systems.  ...  Generating Fusion Suggestions Fusion provides an expressive specification language to encode arbitrary software protocols, and we define A and H within the context of this analysis system.  ...

A new Approach to Performance Evaluation of Formally Specified Protocols [chapter]

Stefan Böhmer, Ralf Klafka
1995 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
A main focus is on semi-automatic generation of a program for stochastic simulation directly from a given protocol specification in SDL.  ...  A concept as well as an implementation is shortly described which combines the techniques of formal specification and stochastic simulation.  ...  impact on the further development of the SDL language: through the use of SDL as a language for protocol implementation it will be possible to orientate the SDL standardization process closer to user  ...

Protocol design: redefining the state of the art

G.J. Holzmann
1992 IEEE Software  
(And where experience is, of course, a nice word for the history of mistakes that a programmer is not likely to make more than once.)  ...  Before we can solve the protocol design problem in this way, we will need two things: (1) Adequate specification languages to formalize protocol definitions and design requirements (2) Effective validation  ...  Specification The protocol validation systems of the early eighties required a great deal of human ingenuity in preparing a protocol specification for validation.  ...
