This paper tackles the consensus problem in asynchronous systems prone to byzantine failures. One way to circumvent the FLP impossibility result consists in adding synchrony assumptions (deterministic solution). In the context of crash failures (at most t processes may crash), the weakest partially synchronous system model assumes at least one correct(More)
<i>k</i>-Set agreement is a central problem of fault-tolerant distributed computing. Considering a set of <i>n</i> processes, where up to <i>t</i> may commit failures, let us assume that each process proposes a value. The problem consists in defining an algorithm such that each non-faulty process decides a value, at most <i>k</i> different values are(More)
To circumvent the FLP impossibility result in a deterministic way several protocols have been proposed on top of an asynchronous distributed system enriched with additional assumptions. In the context of Byzantine failures for systems where at most t processes may exhibit a Byzantine behavior, two approaches have been investigated to solve the consensus(More)
