Name-passing calculi and crypto-primitives: A survey

Bugliesi, M., Castagna, G., Crafa, S., Focardi, R. and Sassone, V. (2004) Name-passing calculi and crypto-primitives: A survey At International School on Foundations of Security Analysis and Design, FOSAD 01/02.. , pp. 91-138.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The paper surveys the literature on high-level name-passing process calculi, and their extensions with cryptographic primitives. The survey is by no means exhaustive, for essentially two reasons. First, in trying to provide a coherent presentation of different ideas and techniques, one inevitably ends up leaving out the approaches that do not fit the intended roadmap. Secondly, the literature on the subject has been growing at very high rate over the years. As a consequence, we decided to concentrate on few papers that introduce the main ideas, in the hope that discussing them in some detail will provide sufficient insight for further reading.
