Diamonds for Security: A Non-Interleaving Operational Semantics for the Applied Pi-Calculus

Authors: Clément Aubert, Ross Horne, and Christian Johansen

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 243, 33rd International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2022)


Abstract
We introduce a non-interleaving structural operational semantics for the applied π-calculus and prove that it satisfies the properties expected of a labelled asynchronous transition system (LATS). LATS have well-studied relations with other standard non-interleaving models, such as Mazurkiewicz traces or event structures, and are a natural extension of labelled transition systems where the independence of transitions is made explicit. We build on a considerable body of literature on located semantics for process algebras and adopt a static view on locations to identify the parallel processes that perform a transition. By lifting, in this way, work on CCS and π-calculus to the applied π-calculus, we lay down a principled foundation for reusing verification techniques such as partial-order reduction and non-interleaving equivalences in the field of security. The key technical device we develop is the notion of located aliases to refer unambiguously to a specific output originating from a specific process. This light mechanism ensures stability, avoiding disjunctive causality problems that parallel extrusion incurs in similar non-interleaving semantics for the π-calculus.

mwp-Analysis Improvement and Implementation: Realizing Implicit Computational Complexity

Authors: Clément Aubert, Thomas Rubiano, Neea Rusch, and Thomas Seiller

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 228, 7th International Conference on Formal Structures for Computation and Deduction (FSCD 2022)


Abstract
Implicit Computational Complexity (ICC) drives better understanding of complexity classes, but it also guides the development of resources-aware languages and static source code analyzers. Among the methods developed, the mwp-flow analysis [Jones and Lars Kristiansen, 2009] certifies polynomial bounds on the size of the values manipulated by an imperative program. This result is obtained by bounding the transitions between states instead of focusing on states in isolation, as most static analyzers do, and is not concerned with termination or tight bounds on values. Those differences, along with its built-in compositionality, make the mwp-flow analysis a good target for determining how ICC-inspired techniques diverge compared with more traditional static analysis methods. This paper’s contributions are three-fold: we fine-tune the internal machinery of the original analysis to make it tractable in practice; we extend the analysis to function calls and leverage its machinery to compute the result of the analysis efficiently; and we implement the resulting analysis as a lightweight tool to automatically perform data-size analysis of C programs. This documented effort prepares and enables the development of certified complexity analysis, by transforming a costly analysis into a tractable program, that furthermore decorrelates the problem of deciding if a bound exist with the problem of computing it.

How Reversibility Can Solve Traditional Questions: The Example of Hereditary History-Preserving Bisimulation

Authors: Clément Aubert and Ioana Cristescu

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 171, 31st International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2020)


Abstract
Reversible computation opens up the possibility of overcoming some of the hardware’s current physical limitations. It also offers theoretical insights, as it enriches multiple paradigms and models of computation, and sometimes retrospectively enlightens them. Concurrent reversible computation, for instance, offered interesting extensions to the Calculus of Communicating Systems, but was still lacking a natural and pertinent bisimulation to study processes equivalences. Our paper formulates an equivalence exploiting the two aspects of reversibility: backward moves and memory mechanisms. This bisimulation captures classical equivalences relations for denotational models of concurrency (history- and hereditary history-preserving bisimulation, (H)HPB), that were up to now only partially characterized by process algebras. This result gives an insight on the expressiveness of reversibility, as both backward moves and a memory mechanism - providing "backward determinism" - are needed to capture HHPB.
