As compared to the types of vulnerabilities found in simple programs or smart contracts, vulnerabilities in chains are defects that reflect inconsistencies of developers’ intentions against the actual needs, design, realization, configuration, and operation of the blockchain itself.

However, these vulnerabilities can be found in various modules, and, if exploited by malicious hackers, can cause system infrastructure failures and result in major losses of digital assets and data.

CertiK conducts comprehensive security evaluations and formulates customized service plans to ensure the end-to-end soundness of each blockchain system.

As per the report, CertiK’s security service offerings include:

  • Penetration testing & security audits, with special concentrations on critical modules and program functionalities
