We formalize automated analysis techniques for the validation of web services specified in BPEL and a RBAC variant tailored to BPEL. The idea is to use decidable fragments of first-order logic to describe the state space of a certain class of web services and then use state-of-the-art SMT solvers to handle their reach ability problems. To assess the practical viability of our approach, we have developed a prototype tool implementing our techniques and applied it to a digital contract signing service inspired by an industrial case study.
