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, 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.

  • Quantum Computing And The New IT Revolution
    by Tommaso Gagliardoni on February 20, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    Quantum Computing is going to be the next IT revolution, and it’s going to be disruptive. These futuristic machines are on the way to being built right now, and they can crack open the most secure cryptographic codes used today. Nothing is going to be the same: blockchain, e-commerce, cloud, military communications, even AI… everything […]

  • Kudelski Security is Launching its Blockchain Security Center
    by Kudelski Security Team on February 13, 2019 at 8:00 am

    This new service could address the lack of security in applications, processes, and systems associated with blockchain, which itself, is mathematically protected. Kudelski Security, the Kudelski Group’s Cybersecurity division (SIX: KUD.S), is launching its Blockchain Security Center (BSC), which targets the blockchain-based developer community. While transactions on a blockchain are protected by proven mathematical principles, […]
