An Infinitary Proof Theory of Linear Logic Ensuring Fair Termination in the Linear π-Calculus

Authors: Luca Ciccone and Luca Padovani

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


Abstract
Fair termination is the property of programs that may diverge "in principle" but that terminate "in practice", i.e. under suitable fairness assumptions concerning the resolution of non-deterministic choices. We study a conservative extension of μMALL^∞, the infinitary proof system of the multiplicative additive fragment of linear logic with least and greatest fixed points, such that cut elimination corresponds to fair termination. Proof terms are processes of πLIN, a variant of the linear π-calculus with (co)recursive types into which binary and (some) multiparty sessions can be encoded. As a result we obtain a behavioral type system for πLIN (and indirectly for session calculi through their encoding into πLIN) that ensures fair termination: although well-typed processes may engage in arbitrarily long interactions, they are fairly guaranteed to eventually perform all pending actions.

Sheaf Semantics of Termination-Insensitive Noninterference

Authors: Jonathan Sterling and Robert Harper

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


Abstract
We propose a new sheaf semantics for secure information flow over a space of abstract behaviors, based on synthetic domain theory: security classes are open/closed partitions, types are sheaves, and redaction of sensitive information corresponds to restricting a sheaf to a closed subspace. Our security-aware computational model satisfies termination-insensitive noninterference automatically, and therefore constitutes an intrinsic alternative to state of the art extrinsic/relational models of noninterference. Our semantics is the latest application of Sterling and Harper’s recent re-interpretation of phase distinctions and noninterference in programming languages in terms of Artin gluing and topos-theoretic open/closed modalities. Prior applications include parametricity for ML modules, the proof of normalization for cubical type theory by Sterling and Angiuli, and the cost-aware logical framework of Niu et al. In this paper we employ the phase distinction perspective twice: first to reconstruct the syntax and semantics of secure information flow as a lattice of phase distinctions between "higher" and "lower" security, and second to verify the computational adequacy of our sheaf semantics with respect to a version of Abadi et al.’s dependency core calculus to which we have added a construct for declassifying termination channels.

Ferrite: A Judgmental Embedding of Session Types in Rust

Authors: Ruo Fei Chen, Stephanie Balzer, and Bernardo Toninho

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 222, 36th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2022)


Abstract
Session types have proved viable in expressing and verifying the protocols of message-passing systems. While message passing is a dominant concurrency paradigm in practice, real world software is written without session types. A limitation of existing session type libraries in mainstream languages is their restriction to linear session types, precluding application scenarios that demand sharing and thus aliasing of channel references. This paper introduces Ferrite, a shallow embedding of session types in Rust that supports both linear and shared sessions. The formal foundation of Ferrite constitutes the shared session type calculus SILL_𝖲, which Ferrite encodes via a novel judgmental embedding technique. The fulcrum of the embedding is the notion of a typing judgment that allows reasoning about shared and linear resources to type a session. Typing rules are then encoded as functions over judgments, with a valid typing derivation manifesting as a well-typed Rust program. This Rust program generated by Ferrite serves as a certificate, ensuring that the application will proceed according to the protocol defined by the session type. The paper details the features and implementation of Ferrite and includes a case study on implementing Servo’s canvas component in Ferrite.

A Self-Dual Distillation of Session Types

Authors: Jules Jacobs

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 222, 36th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2022)


Abstract
We introduce ƛ ("lambda-barrier"), a minimal extension of linear λ-calculus with concurrent communication, which adds only a single new fork construct for spawning threads. It is inspired by GV, a session-typed functional language also based on linear λ-calculus. Unlike GV, ƛ strives to be as simple as possible, and adds no new operations other than fork, no new type formers, and no explicit definition of session type duality. Instead, we use linear function function type τ₁ -∘ τ₂ for communication between threads, which is dual to τ₂ -∘ τ₁, i.e., the function type constructor is dual to itself. Nevertheless, we can encode session types as ƛ types, GV’s channel operations as ƛ terms, and show that this encoding is type-preserving. The linear type system of ƛ ensures that all programs are deadlock-free and satisfy global progress, which we prove in Coq. Because of ƛ’s minimality, these proofs are simpler than mechanized proofs of deadlock freedom for GV.

A Universal Session Type for Untyped Asynchronous Communication

Authors: Stephanie Balzer, Frank Pfenning, and Bernardo Toninho

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 118, 29th International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2018)


Abstract
In the simply-typed lambda-calculus we can recover the full range of expressiveness of the untyped lambda-calculus solely by adding a single recursive type U = U -> U. In contrast, in the session-typed pi-calculus, recursion alone is insufficient to recover the untyped pi-calculus, primarily due to linearity: each channel just has two unique endpoints. In this paper, we show that shared channels with a corresponding sharing semantics (based on the language SILL_S developed in prior work) are enough to embed the untyped asynchronous pi-calculus via a universal shared session type U_S. We show that our encoding of the asynchronous pi-calculus satisfies operational correspondence and preserves observable actions (i.e., processes are weakly bisimilar to their encoding). Moreover, we clarify the expressiveness of SILL_S by developing an operationally correct encoding of SILL_S in the asynchronous pi-calculus.
