Part two: Specifying HMAC in Cryptol

This is the last in a series of three blog posts detailing the use of SAW and Cryptol to prove the correctness of the HMAC implementation in Amazon’s s2n TLS library. Part one: Verifying s2n HMAC with SAW. Part three: Proving Program Equivalence with SAW. In the first post, we described how we proved equivalence between a mathematical description […]

Part one: Verifying s2n HMAC with SAW

In June 2015, Amazon introduced its s2n library, an open-source TLS library that prioritizes simplicity. A stated benefit of this simplicity is ease of auditing and testing. Galois recently collaborated with Amazon to show that this benefit extends to verifiability by proving the correctness of s2n’s implementation of the keyed-Hash Message Authentication Code (HMAC) algorithm. To construct this […]

Announcing the Software Analysis Workbench

We are pleased to announce a public preview of the Software Analysis Workbench. The Software Analysis Workbench (SAW) provides the ability to formally verify properties of code written in C, Java, and Cryptol. It leverages automated SAT and SMT solvers to make this process as automated as possible, and provides a scripting language, called SAW […]

High-Assurance Base64

Author: David Lazar Galois’ mission is improving the trustworthiness of critical systems. Trustworthiness is an inherent property of a system, but we need to produce evidence of its trustworthiness in order for people to make informed decisions. The evidence, and its presentation is a key part of what is often called an assurance case. The […]

11+ Years of Formal Methods at Galois

A month or so ago, I  gave talks at SRI and NASA Ames on 11+ Years of Formal Methods at Galois (pdf).  Though I haven’t been around the whole time, it was fun to reminisce on the projects I’ve helped with and to highlight my colleagues’ work!
