Rewinding in EasyCrypt
Organisatsiooni nimiCryptography
KokkuvõteWhen checked by humans, the security of proofs for cryptographic
protocols are inherently error-prone. One way out is to use formal
(i.e., computer-aided) verification. Probably the most popular tool
today for this purpose is EasyCrypt, which allows to interactively
design a proof that the computer will be able to understand and check.

The task of this thesis is to study the applicability of EasyCrypt to
proofs that use "rewinding". Such proofs include, for example,
security proofs for commitment schemes and zero-knowledge
protocols. Can the logic in EasyCrypt already capture such techniques?
If not, how should it be extended?

[All thesis topics should be seen as suggestions. Students are
encouraged to discuss variations of these topics with me. The topics
are designed for master theses, however, interested bachelor students
can contact me to discuss "down-scaled" topics suitable for a bachelor
thesis.]
