The pioneering and well-known work of M. Burrows, M. Abadi and R. Needham (1989), (the BAN logic) which dominates the area of security protocol analysis is shown to take an approach which is not fully formal and which consequently permits approval of dangerous protocols. Measures to make the BAN logic formal are then proposed. The formalisation is found to be desirable not only for its potential in providing rigorous analysis of security protocols, but also for its readiness for supporting a computer-aided fashion of analysis
