To provide self-contained Byzantine fault tolerant storage services of self-verifying data, two server protocols integrating of Byzantine quorum systems (BQSs) and threshold signature schemes (TSSs) are proposed in the literature. Motivated by failures in finding a third of valid server protocols, we study the reverse problem and formally prove that it is impossible to find any third family of valid TSS-BQS systems. Two families of server protocols deduced from this theory, match the existing ones.
