Abstract

The RS3 Information-Flow Specification Language (RIFL) is a policy language for information-flow security. RIFL originated from the need for a common language for specifying security requirements within the DFG priority program Reliably Secure Software Systems (RS3) (http://www.spp-rs3.de). In this report, we present the syntax and informal semantics of RIFL 1.1, the most recent version of RIFL. At this point in time, RIFL is supported by four tools for information-flow analysis. We believe that RIFL can also be useful as a policy language for further tools, and we encourage its adoption and extension by the community.
