K–Resilient Server Synchronization Protocol for Session Guarantees in MANET Environments

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7135)


Session guarantees is a data consistency model aimed at mobile distributed systems. They define consistency from a point of view of a single, mobile client. Consistency protocols of session guarantees are built from two components: one is responsible for the safety (the guarantees) and the other for liveness (data synchronization). This paper presents basic concepts and simulation results of a new k–resilient data synchronization protocol designed for mobile ad–hoc networks.
