Enabling anonymous communication over the Internet is crucial. The first protocols that have been devised for anonymous communication are subject to freeriding. Recent protocols have thus been proposed to deal with this issue. However, these protocols do not scale to large systems, and some of them further assume the existence of trusted servers. In this(More)
Leader election protocols are a fundamental building block for replicated distributed services. They ease the design of leader-based coordination protocols that tolerate failures. In partially synchronous systems, designing a leader election algorithm, that does not permit multiple leaders while the system is unstable, is a complex task. As a result many(More)
Hadoop is a popular system for storing, managing,and processing large volumes of data, but it has bare-bonesinternal support for metadata, as metadata is a bottleneck andless means more scalability. The result is a scalable platform withrudimentary access control that is neither user- nor developer-friendly. Also, metadata services that are built on Hadoop,(More)
Recently has emerged the concept of transiently-powered systems: tiny battery-less embedded systems which harvest energy from their environment. To retain information despite frequent and unpredictable power failures, a transiently-powered system can use non-volatile memory to store checkpoints of program state. However current checkpointing techniques only(More)
