Bounded Memory Dolev-Yao Adversaries in Collaborative Systems
Abstract. This paper extends existing models for collaborative systems. We investigate how much damage can be done by insiders alone, without collusion with an outside adversary. In contrast to traditional intruder models, such as in protocol security, all the players inside our system, including potential adversaries, have similar capabilities. They have bounded storage capacity, that is, they can only remember at any moment a bounded number of facts. This is technically imposed by only allowing balanced actions, that is, actions that have the same number of facts in their pre and post conditions. On the other hand, the adversaries inside our system have many capabilities of the standard Dolev-Yao intruder, namely, they are able, within their bounded storage capacity, to compose, decompose, overhear, and intercept messages as well as update values with fresh ones. We investigate the complexity of the decision problem of whether or not an adversary is able to discover secret data. We s...
