Core L1 and L2 Security

Solid security from the first block

From the whitepaper to the mainnet’s genesis block, we are dedicated to ensuring your platform success.

The heart of our service is a commitment to excellence, transparency, and integrity, partnering with innovators from the very beginning to build a secure and resilient foundation.

In-Depth Analysis: We don’t just review code for common bugs; we meticulously analyze design choices, architecture solidness, incorrect assumptions, economic incentives, and we try creative attack vectors.

Proven Expertise: Coinspect has partnered with innovative development teams, including the Ethereum Foundation, Bitcoin Core, Monero, Zcash, Horizen, Rootstock Labs, Stellar, Tari, Flare, Blockstack, and Grin. Over the years, we’ve conducted extensive audits on various types of nodes, VM internals, P2P network layers, blockchain designs, and consensus rules, consistently uncovering vulnerabilities across these critical components.

Adversarial Mindset: We dive into the provided source code to spot and attempt to exploit security weaknesses that might allow attackers to take over the P2P network or perform unauthorized operations like minting coins, chain splits, double spends, and denial of service attacks.

Aligned Values: We select projects that align with our values, ensuring that our efforts contribute to meaningful and innovative developments in the blockchain space. Trust us to be your security partner from the very beginning, boosting your project’s success.

Our Security Review Process

Our code audit process is comprehensive and meticulous, ensuring the highest level of security and performance for your blockchain applications.

  1. Reconnaissance

We start by thoroughly analyzing your project’s documentation to understand the context and environment in which your contracts operate. Our experts dive deep into your project’s architecture, from general concepts to specific implementations. We assess dependencies on external sources or contracts, reliance on trusted third-party libraries, and aspects of contract immutability or upgradability. Critical factors such as complex mathematical models or cryptographic elements are also rigorously evaluated.

  1. Define Actors and Interactions

Understanding who will interact with your contract and how they will do so is crucial. We define the roles of all actors and map out the main entry points and functions available to each actor, ensuring clarity in permissions and actions.

  1. Implementation Bugs

Our experts conduct a meticulous line-by-line review of your contract’s implementation. This detailed scrutiny helps identify any implementation bugs that could compromise the security or performance of the contract.

  1. Logic Issue Analysis

With a clear understanding of how each contract action is performed and the overall goal of the protocol, we look for business logic issues. This includes identifying potential vulnerabilities such as inflation attacks, price manipulations, unfair liquidations, and bad debt generation that could affect the integrity of DeFi protocols.

  1. Comparative Protocol Research

We research similar protocols that have been previously audited to identify common issues or vulnerabilities that might be relevant to your project. This historical insight helps anticipate and mitigate potential risks.

  1. Static Analysis and Testing

Our team employs static analysis tools to detect vulnerabilities at scale. For each identified issue, we manually verify the actual impact and likelihood of the finding, ensuring a comprehensive risk assessment by eliminating false positives.
