PBFT and Secret-Sharing in Storage Settings


PBFT and Secret-Sharing in Storage Settings


Andreas Happe, Thomas Loruenser, Stephan Krenn (AIT Austrian Institute of Technology)


Recent publications combine secret-sharing with byzantine fault-tolerant distribution schemes into safe and secure storage systems. To our knowledge current publications describe chosen algorithms and implementations but do not highlight areas of conflict between secret-sharing and BFT algorithms in a systematic fashing. This paper presents different concrete problem areas and suggests possible solutions.
