Security and Cryptography

The modern economy relies on the possibility for every actor to trust the communications they perform with their colleagues, customers, or providers. We claim that this trust can only be built by a careful scrutiny of the claims made by all public protocols and software that are reproduced in all portable devices, computers, and internet infrastructure systems. We advocate the use of formal methods in these domains and we provide easy-to-use tools for cryptographers so that the formal verification of cryptographic algorithms can become routine and amenable to public scrutiny.
