Proof Carrying Code provides trust in mobile code by requiring certificates that ensure the code adherence to specific conditions. The prominent approach to generate certificates for compiled code is Certifying Compilation, that automatically generates certificates for simple safety properties. In this work, we present Certificate Translation, a novel(More)
Computer-aided verification provides effective means of analyzing the security of cryptographic primitives. However, it has remained a challenge to achieve fully automated analyses yielding guarantees that hold against computational (rather than symbolic) attacks. This paper meets this challenge for public-key encryption schemes built from trapdoor(More)
—Differential privacy is a rigorous, worst-case notion of privacy-preserving computation. Informally, a probabilistic program is differentially private if the participation of a single individual in the input database has a limited effect on the program's distribution on outputs. More technically, differential privacy is a quantitative 2-safety property(More)
Provable security [6] is at the heart of modern cryptography. It advocates a mathematical approach in which the security of new cryptographic constructions is defined rigorously, and provably reduced to one or several assumptions, such as the hardness of a computational problem, or the existence of an ideal func-tionality. A typical provable security(More)
Relational program logics are formalisms for specifying and verifying properties about two programs or two runs of the same program. These properties range from correctness of compiler optimizations or equivalence between two implementations of an abstract data type, to properties like non-interference or determinism. Yet the current technology for(More)
—EasyCrypt is a tool-assisted framework for reasoning about probabilistic computations in the presence of adver-sarial code, whose main application has been the verification of security properties of cryptographic constructions in the computational model. We report on a significantly enhanced version of EasyCrypt that accommodates a richer, user-extensible(More)
Existing pattern-based compiler technology is unable to effectively exploit the full potential of SIMD architectures. We present a new program synthesis based technique for auto-vectorizing performance critical innermost loops. Our synthesis technique is applicable to a wide range of loops, consistently produces performant SIMD code, and generates(More)
Relational Hoare Logic is a generalization of Hoare logic that allows reasoning about executions of two programs, or two executions of the same program. It can be used to verify that a program is robust or (information flow) secure, and that two programs are observationally equivalent. Product programs provide a means to reduce verification of relational(More)
