IEEE Beijing Section; Beijing University of Technology and IEEE China Council; Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications; Graduate University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences; China Institute of ElectricsTraditional formal methods for analyzing security protocols have gained great success to find attacks or prove their absence in the standard Dolev-Yao model. However, they cannot be applied directly to verify Web services protocols because of their inherent different message syntax. In this paper, we apply our justification-oriented and automatic formal approach again to verify directly security properties for a more complex Web services protocol, based on a fault-preserving mapping tool called SuD (SOAP under Dolev-Yao) and the well developed epistemic logic (logic of knowledge) as the underlying specification language. The effectiveness of the approach can be further confirmed by the experimental results. © 2010 IEEE
