Security Validation of Business Processes via Model-checking
More and more industrial activities are captured through Business Processes (BPs). To evaluate whether a BP under-design enjoys certain security desiderata is hardly manageable by business analysts without tool support, as the BP runtime environment is highly dynamic (e.g., task delegation). Automated reasoning techniques such as model checking can provide the required level of assurance but suffer of well-known obstacles for the adoption in industrial systems, e.g. they require a strong logical and mathematical background.
