Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: undergraduate discrete math, CS 2800  or equivalent.

E. Shi.

In this course, we will explore how to design formally secure protocols that allow nodes to reach consensus in a distributed system. Both classical consensus and modern blockchains will be discussed.
