Abyss: Sistemas Autonómicos Tolerantes a Falhas Maliciosas (ABYSS)

Type: National Project Project

Duration: from 2016 Jul 01 to 2019 Jun 30

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: INESC-ID (Other)

This project aims at designing, implementing, and evaluating techniques to build autonomic Byzantine fault tolerant systems. Examples of dynamic adaptations that may be useful in this context are:

- Dynamic replacement of the BFT protocol in face of the physical characteristics of the machines (processing speed), the network (available bandwidth), and the fault pattern (network instability, partitions, etc).

- Dynamic adjustment of the replication degree and of the physical location of the replicas in response to perceived changes in the external threats. The project will specify, implement, and evaluate a complete solution to support the dynamic adaptation of Byzantine fault tolerant systems.
