A Bouncing Attack on Gasper

In our manuscript [Ebb-and-Flow] we describe a bouncing-style attack on the Gasper consensus protocol [Gasper] in a synchronous network. This repository contains the source code for the simulation of this attack. For a detailed description of the attack, see Section II and Appendix A of our manuscript [Ebb-and-Flow]. For the source code of the simulations presented in [Ebb-and-Flow], please see: https://github.com/tse-group/ebb-and-flow

Attack on Gasper

The file gasper-attack-simplified.py contains a simulation of the Gasper protocol in a synchronous network as well as the adversarial actions for the attack, written in Python. See the extensive code comments for details on what the adversary does when and why.
