Consensus is a classical distributed systems problem with both theoretical and practical interest. Asynchronous Byzantine consensus is currently at the core of some solutions for the implementation of highlyresilient computing services. This paper surveys Byzantine consensus in message-passing distributed systems, by presenting the main theoretical results in the area, the main classes of algorithms and by discussing important issues like the performance and resilience of these algorithms.
