Abstract:

This final report for this project focuses on Design and implementation of the Secure Group message ordering and group membership protocols, which are derived from our previous TransTotal protocols. Design and implementation of the Secure Ring message ordering and group membership protocols, which are derived from our previous Totem single-ring protocols. Experimentation with the FORTEZZA card, the Cryptoki interface, and the Cryptolib software. Development of a system, called the Immune System, that combines the Secure Ring Protocols with the replication manager and majority voting algorithms of Eternal System also funded by DARPA. Understanding the problem of achieving consensus which underlies the message ordering and group membership algorithms of group communication systems for environments that are subject to Byzantine arbitrary faults and malicious attacks.
