Improving Distributed Ledger With A Blockchain Code Audit
FP Complete performed a standardized, rigorous blockchain code audit and system review to help our distributed ledger client better assess the health of their tech stack.
FP Complete’s Blockchain Code Audit saved the client time and money early on and ensured that future changes to the blockchain would not break software functionality
Our client, a distributed ledger/blockchain firm, was faced with an upcoming product release comprised of a software product. They wanted to make certain that the software’s underlying blockchain code was watertight in terms of functionality, security, and maintenance.
With the help of the client’s engineering team, we audited the blockchain, analyzed it for potential security issues, and offered suggestions for improvement. Once our suggestions were implemented, we again reexamined the code. By working with the client’s engineering team, we finalized the code and ensured a superior product was ready for market.
Blockchain Code Audit
Providing a blockchain code review is an essential step in ensuring the quality and functionality of any software. In this case, we focused on the topmost and most client-facing layer of functionality. Through careful analysis and feedback, we were able to identify potential areas for improvement that could enhance the overall user experience. By working with our clients and continuously striving for excellence, we ensured that our client’s software met the highest quality and functionality standards.
We continuously analyzed the code for known and suspected vulnerabilities, inspected test coverage reports, and focused primarily on auditing the code for potential security concerns. Working with the client’s engineering team to improve their code was a collaborative effort that led to significant improvements in each layer of functionality. The client team was responsive to our suggestions and feedback, which allowed us to work together efficiently and achieve the desired results.
Through our use of Coq, a powerful proof assistant language, we have found an effective way to audit code and ensure its reliability. Coq builds and verifies mathematical proofs. By utilizing the Coq system, our team is able to evaluate the blockchain code more efficiently and effectively.
Our efforts supported a skilled, competent, and experienced engineering team in their code quality improvement. Complex distributed systems take a lot of effort to design and put into practice correctly. Our client confidently launched a complex piece of distributed system software to the market and credited FP Complete with improving their code quality.
At FP Complete, we understand that every project is unique and requires a tailored approach. Our experience with the client’s engineering team highlighted the importance of being adaptable and flexible in our code review process. While our typical approach involves extensive review followed by implementation, we were able to adjust to the fast-paced iteration process required for this particular project.
