Abstract

Much attention has been paid to the design of languages for the specification of cryptographic protocols. However, the ability to specify their desired behavior correctly is also important; indeed many perceived protocol flaws arise out of a misunderstanding of the protocol's requirements. In this talk we give a brief survey of the history of requirements specification in formal analysis of cryptographic protocols. We outline the main approaches and describe some of the open issues.
