Description of Command and Control Networks in Coq


A command and control (C2) system can be defined as a group of individuals organised hierarchically in which higher-ranking individuals can issuedirections to their subordinates with a certain goal in mind. We present a model for representation of command and control networks in the Coq proof assistant based on a tree data structure. Our model utilises Coq’s implementation of data structures and includes examples of how to define functions and properties that may be relevant in a C2 system, as well as examples of some of the tests we have performed to verify the correctness and usability of our model. The examples given here are simple, but constitute basic blocks that can later be used in more realistic formalisations.
