Title: Supporting fault-tolerant communication in networks
Author: Kanjani, Khushboo
Abstract: We address two problems dealing with fault -tolerant communication in networks . The first one is designing a distributed storage protocol tolerant to Byzantine failure of servers . The protocol implements a multi -writer multi -reader register which satisfies a weaker consistency condition called MWReg . Most of the earlier work gives multiwriter implementations by simulating m copies of a single -writer protocol where m is the number of writers . Our solution gives a direct multi -writer implementation and thus has bounded message and time complexity independent of the number of writers . We have simulated the complete protocol to test its performance and also proved its correctness theoretically . The second problem we address is of providing a reliable communication link between two nodes in a network . We present a capacity reservation algorithm in the case for upper bounds on edge capacities and costs associated with using per unit capacity on any edge . We give a flow based approximation algorithm with cost at most four times optimal . To conclude , we design a distributed storage protocol and a capacity reservation algorithm which are tolerant to network failures .
