Enforcing High-Level Security Properties for Applets
Smart card applications often handle privacy-sensitive information, and therefore must obey certain security policies. Typically, such policies are described as high-level security properties, stating for example that no pin verification must take place within a transaction. Behavioural interface specification languages, such as JML (Java Modeling Language), have been successfully used to validate functional properties of smart card applications. However, high-level security properties cannot directly be expressed in such languages. Therefore, this paper proposes a method to translate high-level security properties into JML annotations. The method synthesises appropriate annotations and weaves them throughout the application. In this way, security policies can be validated using existing tools for JML. The method is general and applies to a large class of security properties. To validate the method, it has been applied to several realistic examples of smart card applications. This al...
