A programming language for cryptographic protocols
eases design and implementation of application-specific
protocols for tasks such as electronic commerce and distributed
access control. The language provides a minimal
expressiveness useful for defining new protocols.
We give the language a semantics via strand spaces,
so that the designer can prove that a new protocol
meets the security goals. This semantics also motivates
a compilation strategy, yielding protocol implementations
faithful to their verified behavior.
We also aim to clarify the relation between the abstract
models used in protocol verification and the actual
behavior of protocols as implemented.
