Security By Design and Smart Contract Audits

This session will cover why smart contracts are the new paradigm of software development. The idea of a serverless application running in a public ledger with open interface is new to most developers and hence common practices in traditional programming could easily result in security vulnerabilities in decentralized applications. We will also explore how implementing financial smart contracts can fail if only consider current best practices used in the financial sector.

What will students learn?
Smart contract security best practices, how to think about security in the design of their decentral applications (security by design). The second half of the session will focus on smart contract code auditing and hands on code review on real smart contracts.

This course is appropriate for current and aspiring developers who want to implement security by design and financial smart contract applications.

Prerequisite: Participants should have a general idea of how Ethereum works, understand the basic structure of smart contracts and Solidity. If possible, please pre-install these tools in order to save time during the session:  VSCode, Solidity and Solidity Visual Auditor extensions.
