Computationally Sound Mechanized Proofs of Correspondence Assertions
Abstract: We present a new mechanized prover for showing correspondence
assertions for cryptographic protocols in the computational model.
Correspondence assertions are useful in particular for establishing
Our technique produces proofs by sequences of games, as standard in
cryptography. These proofs are valid for a number of sessions
polynomial in the security parameter, in the presence of an active
adversary. Our technique can handle a wide variety of cryptographic
primitives, including shared- and public-key encryption, signatures,
message authentication codes, and hash functions. It has been
implemented in the tool CryptoVerif and successfully tested on
examples from the literature.
