Distributed Trust: Supporting Fault-tolerance and Attack-tolerance
MetadataShow full item record
Schneider, Fred B.; Zhou, Lidong
Fault-tolerance and attack-tolerance are crucial for implementing a trustworthy service. An emerging thread of research investigates interactions between fault-tolerance and attack-tolerance---specifically, the coupling of replication with threshold cryptography for use in environments satisfying weak assumptions. This coupling yields a new paradigm known as distributed trust, which is the subject of this paper.
