Lab Name


Short Description

Implementation of MinBFT consensus protocol.

Scope of Lab

MinBFT is a pluggable software component that allows to achieve Byzantine fault-tolerant consensus with fewer consenting nodes and less communication rounds comparing to the conventional BFT protocols. The component is implemented based on Efficient Byzantine Fault-Tolerance paper, a BFT protocol that leverages secure hardware capabilities of the participant nodes.

This lab is an implementation of MinBFT consensus protocol. The code is written in Golang, except the TEE part which is written in C, as an IntelĀ® SGX enclave.

We hope that by evaluating this consensus component under the existing blockchain frameworks, the community will benefit from availability to leverage it in different practical use cases.
