Abstract

We devise an abstraction of zero-knowledge protocols that is
accessible to a fully mechanized analysis. The abstraction is
formalized within the applied pi-calculus using a novel equational
theory that abstractly characterizes the cryptographic semantics of
zero-knowledge proofs. We present an encoding from the equational
theory into a convergent rewriting system that is suitable for the
automated protocol verifier ProVerif. The encoding is sound and fully
automated. We successfully used ProVerif to obtain the first
mechanized analysis of the Direct Anonymous Attestation (DAA)
protocol. The analysis in particular required us to devise novel
abstractions of sophisticated cryptographic security definitions based
on interactive games.
