Abstract:This paper presents a new approach for verifying confidentiality
for programs, based on abstract interpretation. The
framework is formally developed and proved correct in the
theorem prover PVS. We use dynamic labeling functions
to abstractly interpret a simple programming language via
modification of security levels of variables. Our approach
is sound and compositional and results in an algorithm for
statically checking confidentiality.
