We show that a type system based on the intuitionistic modal logic S4 provides an expressive framework for specifying and analyzing computation stages in the context of functional languages. Our main technical result is a conservative embedding of Nielson & Nielson's twolevel functional language in our language MiniML, which in
A Judgmental Reconstruction of Modal Logic

this paper we reconsider the foundations of modal logic, following MartinL of's methodology of distinguishing judgments from propositions [ML85]. We give constructive meaning explanations for necessity (2) and possibility (3). This exercise yields a simple and uniform system of natural deduction for intuitionistic modal logic which does not exhibit anomalies found in other proposals. We also give a new presentation of lax logic [FM97] and find that it is already contained in modal logic, using the decomposition of the lax modality fl A as
A concurrent logical framework I: Judgments and properties

The Concurrent Logical Framework, or CLF, is a new logical framework in which concurrent computations can be represented as monadic objects, for which there is an intrinsic notion of concurrency. It is designed as a conservative extension of the linear logical framework LLF with the synchronous connectives# of intuitionistic linear logic, encapsulated in a monad. LLF is itself a conservative extension of LF with the asynchronous connectives #, & and #.
NonInterference in Constructive Authorization Logic

"... We present a constructive authorization logic where the meanings of connectives are defined by their associated inference rules. This ensures that the logical reading of access control policies expressed in the logic and their implementation coincide. We study the prooftheoretic consequences of our ..."

We present a constructive authorization logic where the meanings of connectives are defined by their associated inference rules. This ensures that the logical reading of access control policies expressed in the logic and their implementation coincide. We study the prooftheoretic consequences of our design including cutelimination and two noninterference properties that allow administrators to explore the correctness of their policies by establishing that for a given policy, assertions made by certain principals will not affect the truth of assertions made by others.
A Modal Deconstruction of Access Control Logics
"... Abstract. We present a translation from a logic of access control with a “says ” operator to the classical modal logic S4. We prove that the translation is sound and complete. We also show that it extends to logics with boolean combinations of principals and with a “speaks for ” relation. While a st ..."

Abstract. We present a translation from a logic of access control with a “says ” operator to the classical modal logic S4. We prove that the translation is sound and complete. We also show that it extends to logics with boolean combinations of principals and with a “speaks for ” relation. While a straightforward definition of this relation requires secondorder quantifiers, we use our translation for obtaining alternative, quantifierfree presentations. We also derive decidability and complexity results for the logics of access control. 1
An Authorization Logic with Explicit Time

"... We present an authorization logic that permits reasoning with explicit time. Following a prooftheoretic approach, we study the metatheory of the logic, including cut elimination. We also demonstrate formal connections to proofcarrying authorization’s existing approach for handling time and commen ..."

We present an authorization logic that permits reasoning with explicit time. Following a prooftheoretic approach, we study the metatheory of the logic, including cut elimination. We also demonstrate formal connections to proofcarrying authorization’s existing approach for handling time and comment on the enforceability of our logic in the same framework. Finally, we illustrate the expressiveness of the logic through examples, including those with complex interactions between time, authorization, and mutable state.
Categorical and Kripke Semantics for Constructive S4 Modal Logic

Their modalities admit several computational interpretations and are used to capture intensional features such as notions of computation, constraints, concurrency, etc. Both systems have so far been studied m ..."

We consider two systems of constructive modal logic which are computationally motivated. Their modalities admit several computational interpretations and are used to capture intensional features such as notions of computation, constraints, concurrency, etc. Both systems have so far been studied mainly from typetheoretic and categorytheoretic perspectives, but Kripke models for similar systems were studied independently. Here we bring these threads together and prove duality results which show how to relate Kripke models to algebraic models and these in turn to the appropriate categorical models for these logics.
Variations in Access Control Logic

Some of the axioms come from modal logic and programminglanguage theory; others are suggested by ideas from security, such as delegation ..."

Abstract. In this paper we investigate the design space of access control logics. Specifically, we consider several possible axioms for the common operator says. Some of the axioms come from modal logic and programminglanguage theory; others are suggested by ideas from security, such as delegation of authority and the Principle of Least Privilege. We compare these axioms and study their implications. 1
Reasoning about the consequences of authorization policies in a linear epistemic logic

Thus, it is desirable to have a framework for reasoning about the semantic consequences of policies. To this end, we extend a rewriting interpretation of linear logic w ..."

Authorization policies are not standalone objects: they are used to selectively permit actions that change the state of a system. Thus, it is desirable to have a framework for reasoning about the semantic consequences of policies. To this end, we extend a rewriting interpretation of linear logic with connectives for modeling affirmation, knowledge, and possession. To cleanly confine semantic effects to the rewrite sequence, we introduce a monad. The result is a richly expressive logic that elegantly integrates policies and their effects. After presenting this logic and its metatheory, we demonstrate its utility by proving properties that relate a simple file system’s policies to their semantic consequences.

Motivated by many practical applications that have to compute in the presence of uncertainty, we propose a monadic probabilistic language based upon the mathematical notion of sampling function. Our language provides a unified representation scheme for probability distributions, enjoys rich expressiveness, and o#ers high versatility in encoding probability distributions. We also develop a novel style of operational semantics called a horizontal operational semantics, under which an evaluation returns not a single outcome but multiple outcomes. We have preliminary evidence that the horizontal operational semantics improves the ordinary operational semantics with respect to both execution time and accuracy in representing probability distributions.
