The Thorough and Detailed Process of Security

The process is always long and never easy, be it security or anything else. We have exaggerated process for every step that is a part of securing your smart contract and here you can read all about it. From understanding you, your project and the demands that it has, to designing a report that is able to help you understand the vulnerabilities, we make sure that you are a part of the secure future of Blockchain.

THE CYCLE

The thorough and Detailed Process

Process Flow Diagram
Step 1

Specification Gathering

This is the most crucial stage because the detail is key for a successful smart contract Security audit. Here we will gather the specifications from you to know the intended behavior of smart contract. In this stage, we need a summary of the intended behavior of the smart contract from your side. We would also gather specification through forms.

Step 2

Manual Review

Goals of manual review

  • Blue Quill
    Verify that every detail in the specification is implemented in smart contract.
  • Blue Quill
    Verify that the contract does not have any behavior that is not specified in specifications.
  • Blue Quill
    Verify that contract does not violate original intended behavior of specifications.

Here we would look for undefined, unexpected behavior and common security vulnerabilities like

  • Blue Quill
    Re-entrance
  • Blue Quill
    Overflows
  • Blue Quill
    Uncheck return values for low-level calls
  • Blue Quill
    Denial of service
  • Blue Quill
    Bad randomness
  • Blue Quill
    Front running
  • Blue Quill
    Time manipulation
  • Blue Quill
    Short address attack
  • Blue Quill
    Unknown vulnerabilities
  • Blue Quill
    The goal is to get to as many skilled eyes on contract code as possible
Step 3

Manual Testing

  • Blue Quill
    Smart contract will be manually deployed on any of the test network (Ropsten/Rinkeby) using remix IDE. All the transaction hashes will be recorded.
  • Blue Quill
    Gas consumptions and behavior of functions also noted.
Step 4

Functional Testing

  • Blue Quill
    The smart contract will be manually deployed in a sandbox environment like testnet/mainnet forks, hardhat, ganache, etc
  • Blue Quill
    Smart contract functions will be tested on multiple parameters and under multiple conditions to ensure that all paths of functions are functioning as intended.
  • Blue Quill
    In this phase, the intended behavior of the smart contract is verified.
  • Blue Quill
    In this phase, we would also ensure that smart contract functions are not consuming unnecessary gas.
  • Blue Quill
    Gas limits of functions will be verified in this stage.
Step 5

Testing with Automated Tools

    Testing with automated tools is important to catch those bugs that humans miss. Some of the tools we would use are

  • Blue Quill
    Slither
  • Blue Quill
    Mythril
  • Blue Quill
    Oyente
  • Blue Quill
    Manticore
  • Blue Quill
    Solgraph
  • Blue Quill
    Solidity Coverage
Step 6

Initial Audit Report

    At the end, we would provide you a comprehensive report along with details of audit and steps to cover up with the vulnerabilities if we found any in your contracts.

Step 7

Final Audit Report

    After initial audit fixes, process is repeated again and Final audit report is delivered.

Step 8

Delivery

After getting a green light from the previous step, we send the report to our designers. With their skills, they make a PDF version of the Audit Report and beautifully showcase everything in it. Sample Audit Report:

Aduit Report 1Aduit Report 2Aduit Report 3

The report then gets uploaded onto our official GitHub Repository. We then share with you the link to the Audit Report along with a Certificate of Compliance from QuillAudits.

Initially when we talked with Audit company they said they will deliver it on so and so day but it was delayed by 3-4 days. Reason behind this was complexity of our contract [5000+] which took longer for them and they did it with complete responsibility. Their recommendation also helped us a lot in later stage so I would recommend if any of my friends looking for Audit.

It felt like the auditing team was available within a short timeframe, which was excellent. The auditing process looked thorough, and I really appreciate the fact that you took time to investigate GAS optimizations. However, some issues found were a bit far-fetched and in were not about the security.
