Termination) Let a security policy be specified with a CPNP B = (CPN, pe , p x ). The policy B is terminating (or strongly terminating) iff B has no infinite firing sequences. B is said weakly terminating iff B has at least one finite firing sequence. If B terminates with an exit marking M x = M0 + p x , B is called properly terminating. If B is weakly terminating, it may have infinite firing sequence(s) but must terminate in some cases (see Fig 2). Strong termination requires that the policy always terminates with a finite number of firing steps; while properly terminating requires the policy to terminate (strongly or weakly) and to reach a special exit state.
