International Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems (IJCCBS), Vol. 2, No. 2, 2011

Abstract: Consensus is a classical distributed systems problem with both theoretical and practical interest. Asynchronous Byzantine consensus is currently at the core of some solutions for the implementation of highly-resilient computing services. This paper surveys Byzantine consensus in message-passing distributed systems, by presenting the main theoretical results in the area, the main classes of algorithms and by discussing important issues like the performance and resilience of these algorithms.
