What Is a Smart Contract Security Audit?
A smart contract security audit provides a detailed analysis of a project's smart contracts. These are important to safeguard funds invested through them. As all transactions on the blockchain are final, funds cannot be retrieved should they be stolen. Typically, auditors will examine the code of smart contracts, produce a report, and provide it to the project for them to work with. A final report is then released, detailing any outstanding errors and the work already done to address performance or security issues.

About Lesson

The audit report is provided at the end of the audit process. For transparency, projects are expected to share their findings with the community. Most reports categorize issues by severity, such as critical, major, minor, etc. The report will also list the issue’s status, as projects are given time to resolve them before the final report’s release.

Along with an executive summary, a standard report will contain recommendations, examples of redundant code, and a full breakdown of where coding errors exist. Time is given to the project to act on the report’s findings before the final version is released.
