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.

  • 5 Things You Can Do Right Now to Improve Office 365 Security
    by Francisco Donoso on September 16, 2020 at 11:30 pm

    The Microsoft Office 365 productivity suite counts around 200 million active users per month, making it an incredibly attractive target for cybercriminals. In fact, 85% of security incidents investigated by the Kudelski Security Incident Response team in 2019 can be attributed to an Office 365 email compromise. Of course, email isn’t the only asset at

  • Evolution to Becoming a Modern Day CISO
    by Jason Hicks on September 15, 2020 at 6:00 pm

    Today’s top CISOs come from many different backgrounds: some have held more technical roles and decided to switch gears and learn the art of business, while others came from a strong compliance and policy background and were inspired by the machinations of security. Whatever their origin, each CISO has its own blend of qualifications, experience,

  • Beyond Security: Creating a Shared Vision for Flexible Cloud Governance
    by Bo Lane on September 9, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    Cybersecurity organizations should partner with business units to create a shared and flexible cloud governance model that better enables responsible cloud adoption. Businesses cannot (and often will not) wait for security organizations to create inflexible governance frameworks for cloud adoption. After all, the cloud is supposed to be flexible and business-enabling. The high-speed transformation to

  • Return-to-work: Best Practices for Implementing Proximity Tracing to Reduce Workplace Risk
    by Ron Frederick on August 26, 2020 at 5:20 pm

    Contract tracing is especially top of mind given the global challenges surrounding COVID-19, and, in some cases, it’s a requirement as organizations begin re-opening their doors to employees and customers. Analyzing location-based data from network-connected devices or Bluetooth and mobile application signals can significantly reduce workplace risk and enable a safe return to work. We

  • Recruiting the Future of Security: Finding Future CISOs
    by Jason Hicks on August 21, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    It is no secret that finding and recruiting strong Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) candidates is far from easy. Many CISOs typically stay in a role for a few years and subsequently are not able to dedicate adequate time to the development of junior leaders who could become the next wave of security leaders. Most organizations
