AbstractWe explain how the formal language LOTOS can be used to specify security protocols and cryptographic operations. We describe how to model security properties as safety properties and how a model-based verification method can be used to verify the robustness of a protocol against attacks of an intruder. We illustrate our technique on a concrete registration protocol. We find a simpler protocol that remains secure, and a more sophisticated protocol that allows a better distinction between intruder's attacks and ordinary errors.
