Abstract

This paper proposes a knowledge based approach to analyze protocols and describes the formal verification process of the Merchant Registration Phase of the Secure Electronic Transactions protocol, which is used to protect the secrecy of online purchases. Relevant concepts, functions, assumptions and rules are formalized using type theory. We model the knowledge of all legal participants and a malicious spy, then verify the security guarantee of the protocol. We incorporate domain heuristics to restrict the proof search in a large state space. The proposed method performs efficiently with our implementation using Isabelle/HOL. Work is continuing in collaboration with Oxford University.
