On Conflict-Free Replicated Data Types and Equivocation in Byzantine Setups

Jacob, Florian ORCID iD icon; Bayreuther, Saskia; Hartenstein, Saskia


We explore the property of equivocation tolerance for Conflict-Free Replicated Data Types (CRDTs). We show that a subclass of CRDTs is equivocation-tolerant and can thereby cope with any number of Byzantine faults: Without equivocation detection, prevention or remediation, they still fulfill strong eventual consistency (SEC). We also conjecture that there is only one operation-based CRDT design supporting non-commutative operations that fulfills SEC in Byzantine environments with any number of faults.
