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. Our blockchain security center is staffed by leading security and cryptography experts, and we’ve developed rigorous methodologies for detecting hardware and software vulnerabilities in blockchain technologies.

  • Preparing For New AI Regulations
    by Nathan Hamiel on July 26, 2021 at 1:26 pm

    Until recently, the regulation of AI was left up to the organizations developing the technology, allowing these organizations to apply their own judgment and ethical guidelines to the products and services they create. Although this is still widely true, it may be about to change. New regulations are on the horizon, and some already signed...

  • Defending Against Cyberattacks in the Increasingly Vulnerable Manufacturing Industry
    by Roger Hill on July 21, 2021 at 3:00 pm

    As manufacturing relies more and more on remote access and automation, cyber hygiene continues to be one of the top challenges in securing manufacturers across the nation. In light of several major supply chain disruptions across manufacturing sectors, the Biden Administration recently announced the creation of a Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force to strengthen critical supply chains...
