ProVerif: Cryptographic protocol verifier in the formal model

Project leader:

Bruno Blanchet

Project participant:

Vincent Cheval

Former participants:

Xavier Allamigeon, Ben Smyth
ProVerif is an automatic cryptographic protocol verifier, in the formal model (so called Dolev-Yao model). This protocol verifier is based on a representation of the protocol by Horn clauses. Its main features are: This verifier can prove the following properties:
