Study and Implementation of the Sieve Protocol in BFT

   page       attach   

This project aims to create a simulation of the Sieve protocol for Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT). Establishing a resilient and dependable replicated state machine (RSM) that can tolerate Byzantine faults in a distributed network was the main goal. During the simulation process, it is important to guarantee scalability and effective resource management. Furthermore, we offer a basic client that can communicate with the RSM by performing a small set of actions.
To evaluate the resilience of the protocol, Byzantine actors are included in the simulation, which comprises numerous nodes, each of which represents a participant in the RSM. Identifying and alleviating Byzantine faults by putting the Sieve protocol into practice will protect the distributed system’s integrity and consistency even when there are malicious nodes present.
In order to resist Byzantine failures, the Sieve protocol requires at least 3f + 1 nodes, where f is the number of faulty ones.
The simulation’s outcomes show how well the Sieve process works to achieve BFT. This project offers a basic, user-friendly tool for experimentation and analysis, advancing our understanding of and ability to apply Byzantine fault-tolerant protocols in distributed systems.
