Abstract

This thesis deals with testing the security and performance of PoS-based protocols. Comparison of ProPos, Algorand, Hedera, Ouroboros and Tezos is presented on theoretical level in terms of performance, attack vulnerabilities and attacks mitigation. This thesis includes a simulation framework for testing Algorand, ProPos and Hedera protocols. The simulation framework is created using Omnet++ 5.4.1. Focus of the simulation experiments is on the performance of the selected protocols. Based on the results of the experiments a few improvements are discussed.
