José Bacelar Almeida, Serdar Tasiran, Manuel Barbosa, Gilles Barthe, Matthew Campagna, Ernie Cohen, Benjamin Gregoire, Vitor Pereira, Bernardo Portela, Pierre-Yves Strub
2019 Proceedings of the 2019 ACM SIGSAC Conference on Computer and Communications Security - CCS '19  
We present a machine-checked proof of security for the domain management protocol of Amazon Web Services' KMS (Key Management Service) a critical security service used throughout AWS and by AWS customers  ...  Domain management is at the core of AWS KMS; it governs the top-level keys that anchor the security of encryption services at AWS.  ...  For this reason, our machine-checked proof is actually carried out in a stronger security model.  ...
