A few weeks ago I gave a talk on network reliability at the ICIS “Future of the Field” workshop on High Performance Computing. This talk surveys three main theoretical approaches we have for building reliable distributed systems from unreliable components. When writing the talk, I was struck by how few theoretical tools we actually have for this problem: Byzantine agreement and state replication; Secure Multiparty Computation; and a circuit based approach proposed by Von Neumann which seems to have been more or less abandoned 20 years ago. Am I missing anything?
 How I got invited to such a workshop is a topic for another post…
