Opacity of nondeterministic transition systems: A (bi)simulation relation approach

02/09/2018 ∙ by Kuize Zhang, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, we propose several opacity-preserving (bi)simulation relations for general nondeterministic transition systems (NTS) in terms of initial-state opacity, current-state opacity, K-step opacity, and infinite-step opacity. We also show how one can leverage quotient construction to compute such relations. In addition, we use a two-way observer method to verify opacity of nondeterministic finite transition systems (NFTSs). As a result, although the verification of opacity for infinite NTSs is generally undecidable, if one can find such an opacity-preserving relation from an infinite NTS to an NFTS, the (lack of) opacity of the NTS can be easily verified over the NFTS which is decidable.
