FormaCrypt ARA

The Abstraction project-team coordinates the FormaCrypt project, on “formal proofs and probabilistic semantics in cryptography” (project web site: ). This project is financed by the Agence Nationale pour la Recherche , in the frame of the Action de Recherche Amont Sécurité, Systèmes embarqués et Intelligence Ambiante (ARA SSIA) . This project of a duration of 3 years and half (January 2006–July 2009) brings together researchers from the INRIA project-teams Abstraction and Cascade (LIENS, Laboratoire d'Informatique de l'École Normale Supérieure ), Secsi (LSV, Laboratoire Spécification et Vérification, ENS Cachan ), and Cassis (LORIA, Laboratoire Lorrain de Recherche en Informatique et ses Applications ), as well as Martín Abadi as scientific advisor. The goal of this project is to bridge the gap between the formal and computational models of security protocols, so as to obtain automatic proofs of protocols valid in the computational model. This project has led to 39 publications in international conferences, workshops, and journals, to the implementation of two tools, CryptoVerif and an extension of AVISPA, and strongly contributed to the organization of a series of international workshops (the workshops on Formal and Computational Cryptography, FCC). Bruno Blanchet is the principal investigator for this action.
