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.

    Passwords have long been a daily part of our lives, but in today’s modern, cloud-first world the use of passwords alone leaves us increasingly more vulnerable to compromise. Large-scale data breaches are being reported more and more frequently in the media with more than 80% of hacking-related breaches involving compromised or weak credentialsi.  Traditional password management  Traditionally, we overcame

    One of the misconceptions about cloud services is that you have to surrender all control when you sign-up. While it is true that you may no longer have racks of servers with blinking lights humming away in your data center, it doesn’t mean that you no longer have any visibility into how your users use
