Simple and Efficient Byzantine General Algorithms with Early Stopping
Toueg, Sam; Perry, Kenneth J.; Srikanth, T. K.
We describe a Byzantine Agreement algorithm, with early stopping, for systems with arbitrary process failures. The algorithm presented is simpler and more efficient than those previously known. It was derived using a broadcast primitive that provides properties of message authentication and thus restricts the disruptive behavior of faulty processes. This primitive is a general tool for deriving fault-tolerant algorithms in the presence of arbitrary failures.
