The verification of web services becomes a challenge in software verification. This paper presents a framework for verification of web service interfaces at various abstraction levels. Its foundation is the interface theory for web services, in which transaction features are incorporated. Within the framework, one may check non mutual invocation, compatibility and refinement of web services at signature, conversation and protocol levels. At protocol level, we present a model checking approach to verifying the protocol properties in Action Set Computation Tree Logic(ASCTL). The paper also discusses the integration of our framework into the web service development.
