### Abstract

We provide a treatise about checking proofs of distributed systems by computer using general purpose proof checkers. In particular, we present two approaches to verifying and checking the verification of the Sequential Line Interface Protocol (SLIP), one using rewriting techniques and one using the so-called cones and foci theorem. Both verifications are carried out in the setting of process algebra. Finally, we present an overview of literature containing checked proofs. Note: The research of the second author is supported by Human Capital Mobility (HCM). 1 Proof checkers Anyone trying to use a proof checker, e.g. Isabelle [67, 68], HOL [29], Coq [20], PVS [78], Boyer-Moore [14] or many others that exist today has experienced the same frustration. It is very difficult to prove even the simplest theorem. In the first place it is difficult to get acquainted to the logical language of the system. Most systems employ higher order logics that are extremely versatile and expressive. Howev...
