    • Cryptographic Support for Fault-Tolerant Distributed Computing 

      Minsky, Yaron; Johansen, Dag; van Renesse, Robbert; Schneider, Fred B. (Cornell University, 1996-07)
      In an open distributed system, agents comprising an application must not only survive (possibly malicious) failures of the hosts they visit, but they must also be resilient to the potentially hostile actions of other hosts. ...
    • NAP: Practical Fault-Tolerance for Itinerant Computations 

      Johansen, Dag; Marzullo, Keith; Schneider, Fred B.; Jacobsen, Kjetil; Zagorodnov, Dmitrii (Cornell University, 1998-11)
      NAP, a detection and recovery based scheme for implementing fault-tolerant itinerant computations, is presented. We give the semantics for the scheme and describe a protocol that implements NAP in Tacoma.
    • NAP: Practical Fault-Tolerance for Itinerant Computations 

      Johansen, Dag; Marzullo, Keith; Schneider, Fred B.; Jacobsen, Kjetil; Zagorodnov, Dmitrii (Cornell University, 1999-03)
      NAP is a protocol for supporting fault-tolerance in intinerant computations. It employs a form of failure detection and recovery, and it generalizes the primary-backup approach to a new compuational model. The guarantees ...
    • Operating System Support for Mobile Agents 

      Johansen, Dag; Van Renesse, Robbert; Schneider, Fred B. (Cornell University, 1994-12)
      An "agent" is a process that may migrate through a computer network in order to satisfy requests made by its clients. Agents implement a computational metaphor that is analogous to how most people conduct business in their ...
    • Supporting Broad Internet Access to TACOMA 

      Johansen, Dag; van Renesse, Robbert; Schneider, Fred B. (Cornell University, 1996-07)
      Any provider of software is faced with a problem if that software must be installed on autonomous sites of a large network. This paper reports experiences in addressing this network-software installation- problem for ...
    • A TACOMA Retrospective 

      Johansen, Dag; Lauvset, Kare J.; van Renesse, Robbert; Schneider, Fred B.; Sudmann, Nils P.; Jacobsen, Kjetil (Cornell University, 2001-12-04)
      For seven years, the TACOMA project has investigated the design and implementation of software support for mobile agents. A series of prototypes has been developed, with experiences in distributed applications driving the ...
