The Quantstamp Security Network V2 is Now Live on Ethereum Mainnet

July 23, 2019

The Quantstamp Security Network V2 allows users to scan smart contracts for potential vulnerabilities and store a report of the results directly on the Ethereum blockchain.

Our latest release features an enhanced user experience and is designed to allow individuals to run a node without needing to be whitelisted by Quantstamp. Anyone interested in running a node just needs to follow these instructions.

Our Code is Now Open Source

In order to provide transparency to our users, the Quantstamp Security Network is now open-source. This will benefit users in two ways:

  1. Users will be able to independently verify that the network works as intended, and
  2. Any engineer has the option to contribute to the security and quality of the network by suggesting improvements to our codebase.

You can view the Github repo for our smart contracts here, and for our node software here.

This version features an enhanced user experience.

Request a Scan!

Here is how you can request a scan:

Watch the Youtube video on how to request a scan here.

Our network detects bugs like the re-entrancy vulnerability that led to the 2016 DAO hack.

Run a node!

Now, users can run a node to earn QSP while increasing the decentralization of the network.

We focused on creating a great user experience for our node operators. We have noticed that using blockchain technology can be challenging even for experienced developers because of the lack of clear documentation. In order to address this, we put great effort in our documentation and included complementary Youtube video walkthroughs. Even non-technical individuals can run a node.

Start running a node today.

Why our protocol

Over 250 million USD worth of cryptocurrency has either been lost or stolen due to bugs in smart contracts. Also, although smart contracts are growing exponentially, there are not enough qualified security engineers to manually review all of this code. We created the Quantstamp Security Network in order to scale smart contract security using automation.

Our off-chain network of nodes use third-party analyzers, such as Mythril and Securify, to check smart contracts for common vulnerabilities that can have devastating consequences, such as the re-entrancy bug that led to the infamous DAO hack in 2016. Developers can use the Quantstamp Security Network to quickly and easily leverage these tools to check for known vulnerabilities.

We suggest that developers include the Quantstamp Security Network as part of their development workflow.

What is a Re-Entrancy Attack?

Computer scientists say that a procedure is re-entrant if its execution can be interrupted in the middle, initiated over (re-entered), and both runs can complete without any errors in execution. In the context of Ethereum smart contracts, re-entrancy can lead to serious vulnerabilities.
