Access Control and Signatures via Quorum Secret Sharing
—We suggest a method of controlling the access to a secure database via quorum systems. A quorum system is a collection of sets (quorums) every two of which have a nonempty inter...

How to Be an Efficient Snoop, or the Probe Complexity of Quorum Systems
A quorum system is a collection of sets (quorums) every two of which intersect. Quorum systems have been used for many applications in the area of distributed systems, including mu...

Geographic Quorum System Approximations
Quorum systems are a mechanism for obtaining fault-tolerance and efficient distributed systems. We consider geographic quorum systems; a geographic quorum system is a partition of...

Refined quorum systems
It is considered good distributed computing practice to devise object implementations that tolerate contention, periods of asynchrony and a large number of failures, but perform f...

Self-organising quorum systems for ad hoc networks
There are many essential applications for quorum systems in ad-hoc networks, such as that of location servers in large-scale networks. Existing research proposes many approaches t...

Write Markers for Probabilistic Quorum Systems
Probabilistic quorum systems can tolerate a larger fraction of faults than can traditional (strict) quorum systems, while guaranteeing consistency with an arbitrarily high probabi...

The Load and Availability of Byzantine Quorum Systems
Replicated services accessed via quorums enable each access to be performed at only a subset (quorum) of the servers and achieve consistency across accesses by requiring any two qu...

Signed quorum systems
Abstract With n servers that independently fail with probability of p < 0.5, it is well known that the majority quorum system achieves the best availability among all quorum sys...
