Talaria: A Framework for Simulation of Permissioned Blockchains for Logistics and Beyond

by   Jiali Xing, et al.

In this paper, we present Talaria, a novel permissioned blockchain simulator that supports numerous protocols and use cases, most notably in supply chain management. Talaria extends the capability of BlockSim, an existing blockchain simulator, to include permissioned blockchains and serves as a foundation for further private blockchain assessment. Talaria is designed with both practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance (pBFT) and simplified version of Proof-of-Authority consensus protocols, but can be revised to include other permissioned protocols within its modular framework. Moreover, Talaria is able to simulate different types of malicious authorities and a variable daily transaction load at each node. In using Talaria, business practitioners and policy planners have an opportunity to measure, evaluate, and adapt a range of blockchain solutions for commercial operations.
