A compiler that increases the fault tolerance of certain asynchronous protocols is presented. Specifically, it transforms a source protocol that is resilient to crash faults into an object protocol that is resilient to Byzantine faults. The compiler simplifies the design of protocols for the Byzantine fault model because it allows the design process to be broken in two steps. The first step is
compiler; fault tolerance; asynchronous protocols; Byzantine faults; approximate agreement protocol; fault tolerant computing; program compilers; protocols.
