Penetration Testing executed by Hosho

blockimmo AG — Zug, 22nd August 2018 — As blockimmo develops a blockchain and serverless powered platform facilitating property ownership, security is critical to protect blockimmo’s user’s investments and trust. To ensure the highest degree of security, in August 2018 blockimmo commissioned leading blockchain cybersecurity firm Hosho to conduct penetration testing and vulnerability assessment on their ÐApp.

Penetration testing is the practice of examining a computer system, network, or application to identify security vulnerabilities that a potential hacker could exploit to gain access to critical and confidential data. To accomplish this, Hosho’s engineers take a customized approach utilizing various manual and automated attack vectors similar to that of experienced hackers attempting to exploit system vulnerabilities.

Following the completion of testing, Hosho prepared and presented all key findings from the assessment to blockimmo, including a comprehensive Vulnerability Assessment Report. The assessment found no critical or high severity issues, indicating that our platform is secure and solid. The report detailed two medium severity issues that we resolved, leading to additional layers of security and a more resilient blockimmo platform.

More details about the technical environment and systems of blockimmo are described here including high level results of the penetration reports.
