Enhance Your Understanding: An Annotated Security Audit Report

In our previous blog post, Security Audit Reports: A Guide for Everyone, we provided a comprehensive guide on how to read a security audit report. We discussed the various sections of an audit report, what to look for, and how to interpret the findings to gain insights into the security and reliability of the target of the audit, such as a digital wallet or web3 product.

To further enhance your understanding, we are excited to announce the addition of an annotated security audit report. This annotated report is designed to be used in conjunction with our original blog, offering detailed explanations and examples to help you navigate and comprehend the key elements of an audit report more effectively. 

We would like to thank Safeheron for collaborating with us and allowing us to annotate the report used as the example in this blog. Safeheron is an institutional-grade secure multiparty computation (MPC) self-custody platform for digital assets. Secure multiparty computation is a branch of cryptography aimed at creating methods for parties to jointly compute a function over their inputs while keeping those inputs private. The audit report discussed in this blog focused specifically on Safeheron’s MPC – Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (MPC-ECDSA), which uses the mathematics of elliptic curves to generate digital signatures. 

What to Expect from the Annotated Report

The annotated report includes detailed notes and explanations on each section of the final audit report, explaining specific terms and concepts.

How to Use the Annotated Report

As you review the original blog, refer to the corresponding sections in the annotated report. This will help reinforce your understanding of the content and gain a deeper insight into specific sections that you find particularly interesting or relevant.

Access the Annotated Report

We invite you to access the annotated security audit report here. We hope this additional resource will provide you with the tools to make more informed decisions regarding the security and reliability of the digital products you use.
