Unconditionally Reliable Message Transmission in Directed Neighbour Networks

Shashank Agrawal and Abhinav Mehta and Kannan Srinathan

Abstract: The problem of unconditionally reliable message transmission (URMT) is to design a protocol which when run by players in a network enables a sender S to deliver a message to a receiver R with high probability, even when some players in the network are under the control of an unbounded adversary. Renault and Tomala [JoC2008] gave a characterization of undirected neighbour networks over which URMT tolerating Byzantine adversary is possible. In this paper, we generalize their result to the case of directed networks.
