GNU Consensus Marker: BIZANTINE

GNU/consensus/markers are used to indicate existing or potential issues that need to be addressed. Interested contributors can access a description of the problem, current issues, and related developer discussion.

The BIZANTINE marker indicates that the system is vulnerable to Bizantine Fault or Failure. A sophisticated attacker may isolate a user from the network and make her believe she's still connected, while she's running into a simulation controlled by the attacker.


Use all-caps!
