Abstract

We present a formal model of network protocols and their application to modeling firewall policies. The formalization is based on the Unified Policy Framework (UPF). The formalization was originally developed with for generating test cases for testing the security configuration actual firewall and router (middle-boxes) using HOL-TestGen. Our work focuses on modeling application level protocols on top of tcp/ip.
