The aim of this work is to describe a tool (Spi2Java) that automatically generates Java code implementing cryptographic protocols described in the formal specification language spi calculus. Spi2Java is part of a set of tools for spi calculus, also including a preprocessor, a parser, and a security analyzer. The latter can formally analyze protocols and detect protocol flaws. When a protocol has been analyzed and an adequate confidence about its correctness has been reached, Spi2Java can generate a corresponding correct Java implementation of the protocol, thus dramatically reducing the risk of introducing security flaws in the coding phase.
