Security Audit, Assessment, and Validation

How can I identify and address security flaws in my blockchain solutions?

Unfortunately, just like any other IT solution, blockchain architecture is not inherently secure. Strong security and cryptographic protocols must be built in from the start. When this doesn’t happen, blockchain solutions are just as susceptible to attack and abuse as any other piece of code, database, or in-house written application.

Solution

Just like a peer review for scientific studies, having your blockchain solutions audited for security is an essential part of the development process.

 

For software solutions, we use a combination of manual code review and automated techniques such as fuzzing and dynamic code testing to validate a blockchain application’s countermeasures against an untrusted computing base. Once our testing is complete, we provide you with a full cryptographic gap analysis and thorough breakdown of security and logic flaws in protocols, applications, and software-based crypto storage.

 

The Kudelski Blockchain Security Center also undertakes comprehensive audits to identify security vulnerabilities in hardware solutions such as crypto wallets, crypto-exchanges, hardware security modules (HSMs) and any other custom hardware in the trusted computing base. Our experts highlight security flaws present in microchips and other embedded hardware in order to determine their overall level of security and identify possible improvements. Techniques include fault injection, side channel, photonic emission, invasive circuit editing, and HW/SW reverse engineering.

 

Finally, once all flaws have been uncovered, we help your security developers apply appropriate fixes to your platforms, protocols, apps, and networks. Once the process is complete, you’ll see a dramatic improvement in the security and scalability of your blockchain solutions.

Why Us

Since our inception, Kudelski Security has built a reputation on providing world-class security assessments.

  • Data Security as a Business Enabler
    by Giulio Faini on June 15, 2021 at 2:13 pm

    Security has evolved since the days when cybersecurity systems were evaluated by the number of incidents handled by the InfoSec team over a year. IT departments and organizational leadership adopted the attitude that no news (or no data breaches) meant no security problems, so all was well. That approach wasn’t true then, and it certainly...

    by Jason Hicks on May 28, 2021 at 3:00 pm

    No matter how good a CISO is, there aren’t enough hours in the day to handle the myriad of new responsibilities that have been thrown at them. To be effective and ensure a strong security posture, CISOs need a lieutenant to head up each domain that falls within their scope. Given all the challenges CISOs...
