In the formal analysis of security protocols, what the intruder infers from messages travelling on the network can be abstracted into checking whether a term is derivable in an inference system from a given finite set of terms (subject to some equations). This is typically in polynomial time but when encryption is distributive over one of the other operators, it gets difficult: we show that the problem is DEXPTIME -complete by obtaining bounds on proof size. This is to be contrasted with distributive encryption in the presence of an abelian group operator where only a non-elementary upper bound is known.
