Moshe: A group membership service for WANs
Keith Marzullo, Danny Dolev, Jeremy Sussman, Idit Keidar
Pages: 191-238
DOI: 10.1145/566340.566341
We present Moshe, a novel scalable group membership algorithm built specifically for use in wide area networks (WANs), which can suffer partitions. Moshe is designed with three new significant features that are important in this setting: it avoids...

Design and evaluation of a conit-based continuous consistency model for replicated services
Haifeng Yu, Amin Vahdat
Pages: 239-282
DOI: 10.1145/566340.566342
The tradeoffs between consistency, performance, and availability are well understood. Traditionally, however, designers of replicated systems have been forced to choose from either strong consistency guarantees or none at all. This paper explores the...

Secure program partitioning
Nathaniel Nystrom, Andrew C. Myers, Steve Zdancewic, Lantian Zheng
Pages: 283-328
DOI: 10.1145/566340.566343
This paper presents secure program partitioning, a language-based technique for protecting confidential data during computation in distributed systems containing mutually untrusted hosts. Confidentiality and integrity policies can be expressed by...
