Smart Contract Audits

Decentralized Application Security

Protocol Reviews

Blockchain security begins at the protocol level. With modular platforms allowing the development of application-specific blockchains and the emergence of blockchain interoperability, security reviews must be extended to these layers.

Cosmos SDK

Oak Security is a key security actor in the Cosmos ecosystem, with highly experienced staff in Cosmos SDK development and security reviews. 

Substrate

Polkadot has produced Substrate, one of the cleanest and most modular blockchain building toolkits on the market. We have an experienced team of Substrate security engineers at your disposal.

Interoperability Bridges

Blockchains used to be silos but have recently started to communicate with each other. The Oak security team has been involved with blockchain bridges since the early days, in research, development, and, most importantly, security.
