T1 (BFT) State Machine Replication: Hype and Virtue... and even some Practice Full day

(BFT) State Machine Replication: Hype and Virtue... and even some Practice

Alysson Neves Bessani (University of Lisbon)

State machine replication is a fundamental technique for implementing robust client-server systems that became very popular in the last 10 years both in industry (where variations of the model are being used in infrastructure systems supporting millions of users in Microsoft, Google and Yahoo! data centers) and academia. In particular, many papers appeared in systems and dependability conferences proposing faster and practical protocols for implementing state machine replication, specially for the Byzantine fault model, where faulty processes not only crash, but present arbitrary behavior. This tutorial aims to present the fundamentals of the state machine replication model and the recent developments on this area, with special focus on Byzantine fault tolerance and its significance for current and future systems. Besides, the tutorial will feature a hands-on session in which the attendees will learn how to build a key-value store using BFT-SMaRt, an open-source Java-based BFT state machine replication library. Attendees who want to participate to the hands-on session should bring their own laptops.
