The alternating-bit protocol is a fundamental protocol for transmitting data across an unreliable transmission medium. The reliability of the protocol depends on its initial state. The authors present a self-stabilizing version of the alternating-bit protocol, i.e., the system converges to a state that guarantees reliable data transmission regardless of its initial state. Applications of the protocol and possible extensions are discussed.
