The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Outline  Day 1: Practice Using the tool we developed in Twente  Day 2: Theory the constraint-solving algorithm

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Schema of Day 1  How to specify a protocol  How to specify a particular session  How to find security and authentication flaws  Interpreting the result of the tool

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Part 1 How to specify a protocol

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Preliminaries: Prolog’s notation  variables: begin with uppercase or with _ Na,Nb,A,B, _a are variables a,na,nb,b are non-variable terms  variable are terms  Complex terms can be built using predicate (function) symbols: pk(b) is a non-variable term ( pk is a function symbol) pk(B) Nb*pk(B) is the same as *(Nb,pk(B)) : * is an infix- operator. send(Nb*pk(B))

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Learning by example: the Needham-Schroeder A->B : [A,Na]*pk(B) B->A : [Na,Nb]*pk(A) A->B : [Nb]*pk(B)  Notation [t1,t2]: pairing (these are lists in PROLOG) msg*k: asymmetric encryption  Conventions Na, Nb: nonces A, B: Agents (Alice and Bob) pk(A): public key of A

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Roles A->B : [A,Na]*pk(B) B->A : [Na,Nb]*pk(A) A->B : [Nb]*pk(B)  Here we have 2 ROLES one INITIATOR (A) one RESPONDER (B)  A role is specified as a sequence of EVENTS

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Events  events are actions, two kind: send(t) recv(t) t is a term (a message)  the crucial part of a role is a list of his actions: [recv([A,B]), send([A,Na]*pk(B)), recv([Na,Nb]*pk(A)), send(Nb*pk(B))]  [t1,…,tn]: is a list in Prolog

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Specifying a Role  Fixed (abstract) notation: name(Variables) = [Actions].  E.g. initiator(A,B,Na,Nb) = [ send([A,Na]*pk(B)), recv([Na,Nb]*pk(A)), send(Nb*pk(B))].  The tool notation is different! compiler notation vs abstract notation (this one)

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology The Responder  How does the responder look like?  Just exchange “send” and “recv” responder(A,B,Na,Nb) = [ recv([A,Na]*pk(B)), send([Na,Nb]*pk(A)), recv(Nb*pk(B))]).  Any name is good (not only “responder)  Notice ALL THESE VARIABLES! names & nonces are not fixed roles are parametric

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Summarizing:  We specified the roles of NS: initiator(A,B,Na, Nb), responder(A,B,Na,Nb)  We still have to specify how our session looks like how many initiators & how many responders NB: a recent result by Comon-Lundh & Cortier states that 2 agents are sufficient (but give no limit on the number of sessions) The names of the agents are there agents playing both as initiator and responders?  We need to define a scenario

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Part 2 How to specify a particular session

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology System Scenarios  Protocol roles provide ‘templates’  Set up a finite scenario for verification choose roles participating in the session instantiate the variables of the roles  Instantiation: used for: Say who is playing which role Introduce fresh nonces

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology System Scenarios cont’d A->B : [A,Na]*pk(B) B->A : [Na,Nb]*pk(A) A->B : [Nb]*pk(B)  A possible scenario: s1 = {initiator(a,B,na,Nb), responder(A,b,Na,nb)} one INITIATOR A played by agent a one RESPONDER B played by agent b

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Variables & non-variables  Consider the scenario {initiator(a,B,na,Nb), responder(A,b,Na,nb)}  Variables indicate parameters that may assume any value (their value is not known at the start). For instance, the initiator here does not know in advance the name of the responder.  Fresh nonces = new terms (ground terms that don’t occur elsewhere ).

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology More System Scenarios for NS {initiator(a,b,na,nb), responder(a,b,na,nb)} –the ‘honest’ scenario (but unrealistic) {initiator(a,B,na,Nb), responder(A,b,Na,nb)} –may not communicate with each other {initiator(a,b,na,nb), responder(A,B,Na,Nb)} –a may also play the responder role {initiator(a,b,na,nb), responder(c,d,nc,nd)} –no communication!

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology The network model Network/Intruder Scenario Agent Role Network - intruder: Dolev-Yao. send(t) recv(t)

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Constraint Store  knowledge (K) the intruder’s knowledge: the set of intercepted messages  constraint store: {msg_1:K_1, …, msg_n:K_n} msg_1, …, msg_n: messages (terms) K_1, …, K_n: knowledges (set of messages)  Is satisfiable: each msg_i is generable using K_i.

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Overview of the Verification Algorithm  A step of the verification algorithm: choose an event e from a role of S Two cases: e = send(t) –t is added to the intruder’s knowledge e = recv(t) –add constraint t:K to the constraint store –if constraint store is solvable, proceed –otherwise, stop

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Part 3 Using the tool in practice How to find security and authentication flaws

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Finding Secrecy flaws  What is a secrecy flaw?  To check if na remains secret, one just has to add to the scenario the singleton role [recv(na)]  na remains secret the intruder cannot output it!  in practice we define a special role secrecy(X) = [recv(X)].

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Finding Authentication Flaws  More complex than checking secrecy.  What is an authentication flaw? Various definitions. Basically: an input event recv(t) without corresponding preceding output event send(t). Can be checked by e.g., running the responder strand without an initiator role. We are working on it.

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology From abstract notation to implementation notation  Abstract notation role_name(Var1,…,VarN) = [Events].  Concrete notation role_name(Var1,...,VarN,[Events]). Abstract Notation initiator(A,B,Na,Nb) = [ send([A,Na]*pk(B)), recv([Na,Nb]*pk(A)), send(Nb*pk(B)) ]). % Implementation Notation initiator(A,B,Na,Nb,[ send([A,Na]*pk(B)), recv([Na,Nb]*pk(A)), send(Nb*pk(B)) ]).

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Specification of NS % Initiator role initiator(A,B,Na,Nb,[ send([A,Na]*pk(B)), recv([Na,Nb]*pk(A)), send(Nb*pk(B)) ]). % Responder role responder(A,B,Na,Nb,[ recv([A,Na]*pk(B)), send([Na,Nb]*pk(A)), recv(Nb*pk(B)) ]). % Standard secrecy-checking role secrecy(X,[recv(X)]).

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Scenarios in Practice scenario([ [name_1,Var_1],..., [name_n,Var_n] ] ) :- role_1(...,Var_1),... role_n(...,Var_n).

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology For Instance  What do we achieve with this scenario? scenario([ [alice,Init1], [bob,Resp1], [sec,Secr1] ] ) :- initiator(a,B,na,Nb,Init1), responder(a,b,Na,nb,Resp1), secrecy(nb, Secr1).

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Last Details (1): Initial intruder knowledge & has_to_finish % Set up the initial intruder knowledge initial_intruder_knowledge([a,b,e]). % specify which roles we want to force to % finish (only sec in this example) has_to_finish([sec]).

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology The Origination assumption  Roles are ‘parametric’, i.e. may contain variables  We have to avoid sending out uninstantiated variables (only the intruder may do so).  We must satisfy the origination assumption: Any variable should appear for the first time in a recv event So, we add events of the form recv(X), where appropriate

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Specification of NS with O.A. % Initiator role initiator(A,B,Na,Nb,[ recv(B), send([A,Na]*pk(B)), recv([Na,Nb]*pk(A)), send(Nb*pk(B)) ]). % Responder role responder(A,B,Na,Nb,[ recv([A,Na]*pk(B)), send([Na,Nb]*pk(A)), recv(Nb*pk(B)) ]). scenario([[alice,Init1], [bob,Resp1], [sec,Secr1]]) :- initiator(a,B,na,Nb,Init1), responder(a,b,Na,nb,Resp1), secrecy(nb, Secr1).

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Last steps before execution…  Decide whether we want Prolog stop at first solution it finds, or iterate and show them all.  Click on Verify

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology The Results  For each run, the tool visualizes: which events of a role could not be completed (nb: the tools tries to complete each role, but this is sometimes impossible) the complete run.

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Examples of Results (1) SOLUTION FOUND State: [[alice,[]],[bob,[recv(nb * pk(b))]],[sec,[]]]. alice finishedsec finished! bob did not finish

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Examples of Results (2) SOLUTION FOUND State: [[a,[]],[b,[recv(nb * pk(b))]],[sec,[]]] Trace: [a,send([a,na] * pk(e))] [b,recv([a,na] * pk(b))] [b,send([na,nb] * pk(a))] [a,recv([na,nb] * pk(a))] [a,send(nb * pk(e))] [sec,recv(nb)]

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology What if we try another scenario? scenario([ [alice1,Init1], [alice2,Init2], [bob,Resp1], [sec,Secr1] ] ) :- initiator(a,b,na,Nb,Init1), initiator(b,A,na,Nb,Init1), responder(a,b,Na,nb,Resp1), secrecy(nb, Secr1). TRY THIS!

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Exercise 1: Modify NS as Lowe proposed A->B : [A,Na]*pk(B) B->A : [Na,Nb,B]*pk(A) A->B : [Nb]*pk(B)  To do implement the roles Try bigger scenarios, with at least two parallel sessions Find Millen’s type flaw attack

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Millen’s type flaw attack  a1. E(A) -> B : {A, E}pk(B) (E is the intruder name, should be a nonce!)  a2. B -> E(A): {E, Nb, B}pk(A)  b1. E -> A : {E, Nb, B}pk(A) (here is the field confusion)  b2. A -> E : {Nb,B, Nb2, A}pk(E)

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Looking for authentication flaws in Needham-Schroeder  Consider (again) the scenario:  No secrecy check this time.  But, if B is not b, and the responder role finishes, we have an authentication attack! {initiator(a,B,na,Nb), responder(a,b,Na,nb)}

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Looking for authentication flaws in Needham-Schroeder cont’d  We only have to specify has_to_finish to b: has_to_finish([b]).  And verify again…

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Results: the first reported trace SOLUTION FOUND State: [[a,[]],[b,[]]] Trace: [a,send([a,na] * pk(b))] [b,recv([a,na] * pk(b))] [b,send([na,nb] * pk(a))] [a,recv([na,nb] * pk(a))] [a,send(nb * pk(b))] [b,recv(nb * pk(b))]  This is a normal run  This is a correct trace. To find a flaw we must look for B not instantiated to b!

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Results: the right trace SOLUTION FOUND State: [[a,[]],[b,[]]] Trace: [a,send([a,na] * pk(e))] [b,recv([a,na] * pk(b))] [b,send([na,nb] * pk(a))] [a,recv([na,nb] * pk(a))] [a,send(nb * pk(e))] [b,recv(nb * pk(b))]

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Another protocol: Yahalom A->B : A,Na B->S : [A, Na,Nb]+Kbs S->A : [B, Kab, Na, Nb]+Kas, [A,Kab]+Kbs A->B : [A, Kab]+Kbs, [Nb]+Kab  [t]+k: symmetric encryption  Kxs: shared key between x and s  Na, Nb: nonces  Goal: establish a secret session key Kab  Incorrect (see Clark and Jacob library)

University of Twente The Netherlands Centre for Telematics and Information Technology Exercise for home  For the yahalom protocol: Encode the protocol Verify the protocol: try many scenarios Could you find any flaw? Model leakage of Nb (i.e., B sends Nb in plain at some point) Verify again the protocol: could you find any flaw? Compare this attack to the one described by Clark & Jacob  2. Try the other protocols listed in the online tool.  http://130.89.144.15/cgi-bin/show.cgi  www.cs.utwente.nl/~etalle
