Special Session on Protocol Specification Techniques

How should we describe and specify protocols?

How can we ensure that network protocol specifications are consistent and correct, and how can we verify that specifications are correct and validate that implementations match the specification?

The IETF community has long used natural language, English, to describe and specify its protocols, mixed with occasional formal languages such as ABNF, YANG, and so on. This session will discuss whether this is the right approach, and to what extent formal methods, structured specification languages, and natural language processing techniques can help describe network protocols.

Welcome and Opening Remarks
Colin Perkins (University of Glasgow)

Tools for disambiguating RFCs
Jane Yen (USC) Invited talk

CFRG Specifications in Theory and Practice
