Today's networks deploy many stateful procesing boxes ranging from NATs to firewalls and application optimizers: these boxes operate on packet flows, rather than individual packets. As more and more middleboxes are deployed, understanding their composition is becoming increasingly difficult. Static checking of network configurations is a promising approach(More)
Network Function Virtualization is pushing network operators to deploy commodity hardware that will be used to run middlebox functionality and processing on behalf of third parties: in effect, network operators are slowly but surely becoming in-network cloud providers. The market for innetwork clouds is large, ranging from content providers, mobile(More)
We present SymNet, a network static analysis tool based on symbolic execution. SymNet injects symbolic packets and tracks their evolution through the network. Our key novelty is SEFL, a language we designed for expressing data plane processing in a symbolic-execution friendly manner. SymNet statically analyzes an abstract data plane model that consists of(More)
The development of semantic agent frameworks is strongly influenced by the means for representing and reasoning about knowledge. Nevertheless, when faced with decision-making in multi-agent environments, current approaches are limited in their ability to model strategic interactions. As a result, ontological approaches such as those based on OWL, offer only(More)
In alternating-time temporal logic ATL , agents with perfect recall assign choices to sequences of states, i.e., to possible finite histories of the game. However, when a nested strategic modality is interpreted, the new strategy does not take into account the previous sequence of events. It is as if agents collect their observations in the nested game(More)
