Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for identifying conflict rules between models of network intents. A first and second model of network intents are obtained, the models describing the operation and communication between one or more network devices in a network. A logical exclusive disjunction between the first and second models is calculated over the space of possible packet conditions and network actions defined by models, without enumerating all possible packet conditions and network actions. It is detected whether the models are in conflict with respect to at least a first network device. If the models are in conflict, it is determined whether a given rule of a plurality of rules associated with the first model is a conflict rule. The determining comprises calculating the intersection between the given rule and the logical exclusive disjunction, wherein the given rule is a conflict rule if the calculated intersection is non-zero.
