A Categorical Approach to Secure Compilation


We introduce a novel approach to secure compilation based on maps of distributive laws. We demonstrate through four examples that the coherence criterion for maps of distributive laws can potentially be a viable alternative for compiler security instead of full abstraction, which is the preservation and reflection of contextual equivalence. To that end, we also make use of the well-behavedness properties of distributive laws to construct a categorical argument for the contextual connotations of bisimilarity.
