Ensuring highest security standards

Ensuring the security and integrity of our smart contracts has always been a priority during our development process. We understand that trust is the cornerstone of any successful open web3 protocol, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to protecting our users. The successful completion of this security audit further validates our dedication to providing a secure and reliable AZERO.ID platform.

The result of the extensive code audit from Kudelksi Security proves our strong focus on developing secure and resilient software. Throughout the audit, only nine low-severity issues and two informational issues have been identified. Low-severity issues have “little to no affect from the vulnerability being compromised”.

All relevant findings have been resolved

We are happy to share that we have resolved all low-severity findings of relevance already during the audit process and before the announcement of this audit. Other low-severity findings such as the absence of a pause function or the admin-led contract have been acknowledged. While lacking a pause function is fully intended to keep the protocol as permissionless as possible, the admin key (multi-sig) of the contract is necessary to ensure future development of the protocol.

Overall, the audit consisted of a detailed examination of our smart contract protocol, including an assessment of the overall security posture and any risks associated with the smart contracts. The final audit report highlights the high code quality of the AZERO.ID smart contracts and the mindful security considerations present in our development.
