Muteness Failure Detectors: Specification and Implementation

  title={Muteness Failure Detectors: Specification and Implementation},
  author={Assia Doudou and Beno{\^i}t Garbinato and Rachid Guerraoui and Andr{\'e} Schiper},
This paper extends the failures detector approach from crash-stop failures to mute-ness failures. Muteness failures are malicious failures in which a process stops sending algorithm messages, but might continue to send other messages, e.g., "I-am-alive" messages. The paper presents both the speciication of a muteness failure detector, denoted by 3M A , and an implementation of 3M A in a partial synchrony model (there are bounds on message latency and clock skew, but these bounds are unknown and… CONTINUE READING
