Abstract: In this paper we propose a new Petri net-based meta-model for the specification of workflows. While existing approaches for workflow modeling typically address the consistency of process models, there is no de-facto standard for models which also comprise security-related aspects. Besides basic workflow properties such as executing subjects and transition guards, the proposed IF-Net approach allows net parts to be annotated with security levels in a way that information flow control mechanisms can be applied. By introducing distinguishable token types, IF-Net allows the modeling of both, the control- and data-flow of a workflow in an intuitive way. Altogether IF-Net allows the specification of workflows in a detailed way and provides a basis for the formal verification of security properties on these specifications.
