The authors study formal security properties of a state-of-the-art protocol for secure file sharing on untrusted storage, in the automatic protocol verifier ProVerif. As far as they know, this is the first automated formal analysis of a secure storage protocol. The protocol, designed as the basis for the file system Plutus, features a number of interesting schemes like lazy revocation and key rotation. These schemes improve the protocol's performance, but complicate its security properties. Their analysis clarifies several ambiguities in the design and reveals some unknown attacks on the protocol. They propose corrections, and prove precise security guarantees for the corrected protocol.
