Towards Automated Proving of Relational Properties of Probabilistic Programs (Invited Talk)

1 pagesPublished: July 28, 2014

Abstract

Some security properties go beyond what is expressible in terms of an
individual execution of a single program. In particular, many security
policies in cryptography can be naturally phrased as relational
properties of two open probabilistic programs. Writing and verifying
proofs of such properties is an error-prone task that calls for
automation and tool support. One of the main difficulties in
automating these proofs lies in finding adequate relational invariants
for loops and specifications for program holes.
In this talk we show
how to automate proofs of relational properties of open probabilistic
programs by adapting techniques for the automatic generation of
universally quantified invariants in a non-relational setting.
