This paper presents a rewriting logic specification of the Illinois Browser Operating System (IBOS) and defines several security properties, including the same-origin policy (SOP) in reachability logic. It shows how these properties can be deductively verified using our constructor-based reachability logic theorem prover. This paper also highlights the reasoning techniques used in the proof and three modularity principles that have been crucial to scale up and complete the verification effort.
