Model-based Security Testing using UMLsec

Abstract

Designing and implementing security-critical systems correctly is very difficult. In practice, most vulnerabilities arise from bugs in implementations. We present work towards systematic specificationbased testing of security-critical systems based on UMLsec models. We show how to systematically generate test sequences for security properties based on the model that can be used to test the implementation for vulnerabilities. We explain our method at the example of a part of the Common Electronic Purse Specifications (CEPS), a candidate for an international electronic purse standard.
