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

    For embedded developers and hardware hackers, JTAG is the de facto standard for debugging and accessing microprocessor registers. This protocol has been in use for […]

  • Blockchain Does Not Remove Cybersecurity Risks
    by Scott J. Carlson on May 14, 2019 at 4:00 pm

    The Binance Hack shows us once again that simply by moving the world to blockchain, it will not remove the risks associated with two major areas: Users and Basic Best Practice Hygiene. It’s frustrating to me as a 20-year practitioner that we continue to make the same mistakes as 20-years ago, just in a different programming […]

  • “Security and Cloud, What Is the Right Recipe?” The Technologies
    by Giulio Faini on May 9, 2019 at 4:02 pm

    In the last but certainly not least in our cloud security series, we’ll be covering technologies. Under this umbrella, we cover both the security requirements and the cloud-native (or third-party) technologies that are needed to implement a “secure-to-be” public cloud. In literature, there are plenty of ready-to-be-used security frameworks that give great insight into what […]
