VeChainThor Prioritizes Security of The VeChainThor Blockchain
The VeChainThor team has declared that they will now be prioritizing the security of the VeChainThor blockchain. They have associated with various outside firms to certify the security of the blockchain.
As per an announcement by them, the partnership is to set up the Authority Masternode guidelines to secure the blockchain even further. In an official blog post they said:
“[The blockchain] been undergoing a series of third-party blockchain security testing, alpha testing, code audits, code testing, and mobile wallet security testing over the last month. These tests will be ongoing until mainnet release and, so far, the tests have been running smoothly.”
They have collaborated with firms like SlowMist, Hosho, HackenProof and Secureware. SlowMist is apparently the most noteworthy association for VeChain, as they have rubbed shoulders with companies like Microsoft, Google, W3C, Alibaba, and Baidu. They have expertise in underground hacker training and avoidance, alongside security, examining and installing defensive systems.
Hosho is a huge name in blockchain security. It gives a shrewd auditing and “penetration testing” services.
HackerProof is a crowdsourced platform that gives a bonus to those who find weaknesses. It enables companies to enter a worldwide network of bug bounty collectors.
SecureWare is a security firm that works in blockchain security and security evaluations. It uses established security specialists and skilled software to guarantee the security of their examined items.
The testing for the mobile wallet incorporates gathering knowledge, a review of the general security of the application and a review of server security configuration and identity management.
The key feature of this collaboration is the setup of the Authority Masternode security model. The standards are set up to moderate tampering danger and checking the workings of the blockchain, in this way building up a protected domain. As per the blog:
“The security standard would include recommended masternode hosting architecture, RPC security, Masternode configuration audit, security log, network security, DDoS protection, and other related services.”
