This paper presents an asynchronous recovery scheme to provide fault-tolerance for mobile computing systems. The proposed scheme is based on optimistic message logging, since the checkpointing-only schemes are not suitable for the mobile environment in which unreliable mobile hosts and fragile network connection may hinder any kind of coordination for checkpointing and recovery. Also, in order to reduce the overhead imposed on mobile hosts, mobile support stations take charge of logging and dependency tracking, and mobile hosts maintain only a small amount of information for mobility tracking. As a result, truly asynchronous recovery for mobile systems can be achieved with little overhead
