Preventing Disaster: Advances in Smart Contract Vulnerability Detection

Tuesday, October 8th, 10:00am - 10:20am

What do the DAO, Parity MultiSig wallet and Beautychain have in common?

  1. All three were hacked with disastrous consequences.
  2. In each case, the bugs could have easily been spotted in advance using automated analysis techniques.

In this talk, we’ll investigate the above exploits in depth and show how to use a combination of multi-transactional symbolic execution, taint analysis and greybox fuzzing to detect similar bugs with high accuracy and a low false positive rate. We’ll also introduce optimization tricks that enable fast detection of “deep” vulnerabilities—exploit conditions that are triggered over a longer sequence of highly specific transactions. Finally, we’ll show how developers can apply these security analysis methods to their own contracts using MythX and Mythril.

Breaking Smart Contracts Workshop

Thursday, October 10th, 2:05pm - 3:05pm

Some of the most financially devastating hacks in recent years have happened on the blockchain. In this workshop, we will walk through a series of simple Solidity coding challenges and common mistakes, where participants are asked to read code, understand and try to break them. Regarding each challenge, we will talk about the history of the hacks involving that family of bug. We will talk about the attacks and possible solutions.

Transparent Dishonesty: Blockchain Front-running Taxonomy (Lightning Talk)

Friday, October 11th, 11:20pm - 11:55pm
