TPMC: A Model Checker for Time - Sensitive Security Protocols

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper the authors consider the problem of verifying time - sensitive security protocols, where temporal aspects explicitly appear in the description. In previous work, the authors proposed Timed HLPSL, an extension of the specification language HLPSL (Originally developed in the Avispa Project), where quantitative temporal aspects of security protocols can be specified. In this work, a model checking tool, TPMC, for the analysis of security protocols is presented, which employs THLPSL as a specification language and UPPAAL as the model checking engine. To illustrate the tool, they provide a specification of the Wide Mouthed Frog protocol in THLPSL, and report some experimental results on a number of timed and untimed security protocols.
