In this dissertation we will be studying problems relating to indistinguishability. This topic is of great interest and importance to cryptography. Cryptographic protocol analysis is currently being studied a great deal due to numerous high profile security breaches. The form of indistinguishability that we will be focusing on is static inclusion and its subcase static equivalence. Our work in this dissertation is based on “Intruders with Caps.” Our main results are providing co-saturation procedures for deciding whether a frame A is statically included in a frame B over Δ-strong and ω▿-strong intruder theories, where a frame consists of hidden data and substitutions that represent knowledge that an intruder could have gained from eavesdropping on message exchanges by agents.
