Abstract-- In this paper we identify a major security vul-
nerability in distributed systems: compromised clients under
adversarial control can use the system within their authorized
access rights and authenticated channels to deliberately insert
incorrect data. A significant problem is that when a malicious
client insider is discovered, it is hard to quickly assess the scope
of the damage, and identify corrupt and suspected updates.
