Byzantine Fault Tolerance in Large Scale Reliable Storage System

Dhiraj M. Bochare | A. S. Alvi [3]

Abstract: Byzantine-fault-tolerant replication enhances the availability and reliability of Internet services that store critical state and preserve it despite attacks and software errors. Existing Byzantine-fault-tolerant storage systems assume a static set of replicas, and have restrictions in how they handle reconfigurations. This paper describes a new replication algorithm with PBFT operation that are able to tolerate Byzantine faults. Byzantine fault- tolerant algorithms will be important because malicious attacks and software errors are increasingly common and can cause faulty nodes to exhibit illogical behavior. BFT state machine replication protocols are quite fast, they dont tolerate Byzantine faults very well. Byzantine faults occur as a result of software errors and malicious attacks.
