A Static Verification Framework for Secure Peer-to-Peer Applications

Zisman, A. (2007). A Static Verification Framework for Secure Peer-to-Peer Applications. Paper presented at the Internet and Web Applications and Services, 2007. ICIW '07. Second International Conference on, 13 - 19 May 2007, Mauritius.


In this paper we present a static verification framework to support the design and verification of secure peer-to-peer applications. The framework supports the specification, modeling, and analysis of security aspects together with the general characteristics of the system, during early stages of the development life-cycle. The approach avoids security issues to be taken into consideration as a separate layer that is added to the system as an afterthought by the use of security protocols. The main functionality supported by the framework are concerned with the modeling of the system together with its security aspects by using an extension of UML, modeling of abuse cases to represent scenarios of attackers and assist with the identification of properties to be verified, specification of properties to be verified in a graphical template language, verification of the models against the properties, and visualization of the results of the verification process.
